City Command with Maps & Location Info Hackathon by NEC and Mitsubishi Corporation



  1. Enter image description here There are so many problems that occur in a city.
  2. For example, traffic accidents, crimes, diseases, fires, flooding due to leaks and heavy rains, road closures due to construction and fallen trees (sometimes cows), and other disasters and unforeseen events occur in many countries including India.
  3. Disasters themselves are big problems for sure, but bigger problems are the threats they pose to the safety of people’s lives, the increased stress levels caused by congestion and traffic jams, and the negative impact on the economic activities of cities.
  4. As one of the solutions to this problem, the Command Control Center is being introduced to collect information on various problems that occur in cities, analyze the data, and lead to solutions.
[Problem Statement] — — — — — — — — —

Most of the information gathered by the Command Control Center is mainly reports from citizens that called/texted the police and fire departments.

Although public agencies provide information to the general public at once, they are not always able to support decision-making and selection of whether the information is necessary for each citizen.

We think this situation is a problem to keep each citizen’ safety & less-stress social life.


[Participation Criteria] — — — — — — — — —

Anyone who has a business &/or technology background can register & participate!
