In recent years, the use of technology has increased in many areas including the automobile industry. The use of technology in the automobile industry has brought many benefits, including simplification and convenience in the purchasing, after-sales processes, utilization of vehicles.

For example, the traditional car-purchase experiences are basically visiting a showroom, seeing a car with your own eyes, and taking it for a test drive, then you purchase it if you like it. But it has been enhanced by online purchasing experiences such as High-speed Internet and XR technology recently. 

In terms of the use of automobiles, there is a wide range of ways in which the automobile can be used as a personal space. Also, the automobile itself can be used as a sensor, not only for smart city applications but also can be a monitor to check the health of the car for preventing and predicting any future breakdowns.

When 5G, which is expected to be widespread in the near future, becomes available for automobiles, they will be used for many more purposes than they are now. Not only allowing people to enjoy driving but also to use their cars to enjoy other things by utilizing its space. It can also make a better buying experience possible when customers are thinking purchase.

With the crossover of technology and automobiles, we believe that we can see a new automobile industry through this hackathon, we would like to find innovative ideas and solutions on the theme of "New Digital Transformation through Automobiles in India".

[IP]

The developer/developers of the solution will have all rights and own the background IPs, i.e. IPs which were developed by the teams prior to the hackathon. 

In case there are/are idea(s) that can move forward to the PoC with the organizer, the IP condition would need to be discussed with the team(s).

[Important point]

This hackathon is powered by Isuzu Motors India, so we suggest developers think of ideas and solutions by utilizing Isuzu Motors' car products (especially pickup truck cars which are vehicles with an open part at the back) so that it would be helpful to imagine how we can make it deploy in the Indian market with Isuzu Motors.

Example of car product from Isuzu Motors: https://www.isuzu.in/product/isuzu-d-max/


1) Utilize personal space of pickup truck cars

  • Pickup trucks have more space than usual passenger cars. How we can utilize this space and what we can use this for? If we can think of ideas and solutions with keywords of "Make a car as personal space" x "Pickup truck car" x "Technology", what new innovation we can create?

    2) Utilizing pickup trucks for Indian social problems

  • Think about how we can utilize technology and pickup truck to support to help social problems in India. There is no restriction of sector/industry of social problem, you can think about healthcare, logistics, environment, education, and so on (Whatever social problems you want to solve!).

    3) Increase sales & promotion of car products (especially pickups) which is famous in the world but not in India

  • There are many products (not only car products) which are famous worldwide but not much in India. For example, Haagen-Dazs (premium ice cream), Godiva Chocolate (premium chocolate), and so on.

  • Even in the automotive industry, some cases happen in India. It will be easy to increase awareness by using TV Commercials, YouTube Commercial videos, using famous Bollywood stars as brand ambassadors, etc. but it takes a very high cost; so how we can maximize effective sales & promotion by utilizing technology? and how we can increase awareness of car products in India?

    4) Increase awareness of the importance of driver' health and safety in the commercial vehicle segment

  • In India, companies usually tend to think of business profit as a priority rather than driver’s health and safety. However, caring about drivers is one of the responsibilities of companies/managers of drivers.

  • Unfortunately, many customers of commercial pickup trucks in India are lack awareness of the importance of driver’s health and safety. How we can increase this awareness to them?

  • Prizes INR 2,50,000 in prizes

    • PoC opportunities: If the winner’s deliverable is a feasible business for Isuzu Motors India.
    • Participation Certificate will be provided to people who are selected for the hackathon round and participated in the hackathon successfully.
