Smart India Hackathon 2022 – A National Level Competition is a nationwide initiative to provide students a platform to solve some of the pressing problems we face in our daily lives, and thus inculcate a culture of product innovation and a mindset of problem solving.
Event: Smart India Hackathon – 2022
Problem Statement from: National Disaster Response Force (NDRF).
Category: Software, Domain: Disaster Management
Venue for Grand Finale: Pandit Deendayal Energy University, Gujarat.
Date: 25th & 26th August, 2022

Problem Description: “Disaster situations are threatening, highly dynamic and with uncertain developments. It is difficult to predict the human behaviour when hit by Disaster as this depends on unknown and irrational factors. NDRF has been experiencing such situations especially while evacuating the areas predicted to be under influence of floods or cyclones. People do not want to leave anything behind like livestock. During the time of disaster people do not want to leave anything behind like livestock. This is one such example of unpredictable behaviour that is far from what science calls ‘rational choice’. To create awareness without stepping in disaster situations doesn’t give much of a feel of realistic disaster situations. It is suggested to have Immersive simulations, which will help to step into simulated yet realistic worlds. Simulations can represent threatening and new or unusual situations without any of the serious consequences of an emergency or real disaster. Immersive experiences such as medical simulations are very efficient educational tools. Simulations can help us prepare for emergencies and manage crises as they enable players to experience emergency situations in a safe and interactive way. a) Immersive simulations / Gamification will go beyond preparation and training. b) The simulations would help the responders to take on the situation in a realistic manner and would come out with better actions or decisions and help save lives in times of crises. c) These simulations will have the Testing capacity of the NDRF personnel which will be useful in refreshing the trained personnel.”
