The Telangana AI Mission (T-AIM) has launched the Mobility AI Grand Challenge, powered by NASSCOM and Capgemini. The initiative aims to enhance and promote AI-driven innovation. GHMC will identify and classify the severity of potholes across roads in Hyderabad via live video feeds.
TiHAN, India’s 1st autonomous navigation platform at IIT Hyderabad, is also partnering with the Mobility Challenge to provide intellectual support and guidance. The aim is to promote innovation and viability in technological solutions that use artificial intelligence and enhance their applicability to real-world problems.
The challenge is open for innovators across the country. Registered people will be expected to present an approach note stating the techniques and results they plan to offer. Shortlisted candidates will have four weeks to develop a Proof of Concept. The winning innovator will be awarded INR20 lakhs to implement a pilot project with GHMC.
GHMC officials plan to incorporate live, and archive video skimming and analysis using AI and receive additional insights to work on targeted repair requirements. Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary of GHMC, said, “governments and innovators should increasingly collaborate to solve social problems through open innovation.”
Anurag Pratap, VP at Capgemini India, said that with T-AIM, the company would leverage an innovative “ecosystem to advocate and support tech-enabled transformative solutions” that will make a difference in people’s daily lives.
