We at NEC bring together and integrate technology as well as the expertise to create the ICT-enabled society of tomorrow. As a global IT solution & product provider, we have been creating solutions & products in many industries such as Telecom, Manufacturing, Retail, Agriculture, Logistics and Transportation.

In India, we have been thinking that "How we can improve current situation of logistics & transportation", and there are many challenges which we want to solve.

At this hackathon, we want to find innovative way to solve logistics & transportation problems in India. India has many of issues such as road congestion, lack of last mile delivery, Inefficient and fragmented logistics operation etc.

In order to solve these problems, we could think that "If we can use exist thing as innovative solution, what kind of solution can we create and solve that problems?".

With this point of view, we would like you to think and create new innovative idea and solution with Auto-Rickshaw at this hackathon.

For example, using auto rickshaw as connectivity between public transportation and commuters (such as Gurgaon's example) is one way; but not only this way, there are so many way to use auto rickshaw as innovative solution to improve current logistics & transportation situation.

Please select one industry (Logistics or Transportation) and problem to solve, then create something new innovative way to use auto rickshaw.

We are looking forward to creating new innovation with you. Let us create social value with us for tomorrow!
