e-Yantra Ideas Competition [eYIC]:
e-Yantra Ideas Competition (eYIC) seeks to identify and nurture potential entrepreneurs in the eYantra Labs that the project has set up throughout the country. Students are invited to submit a proposal to solve a local problem using their e-Yantra lab and after an intense process of selection and vetting, are permitted to go ahead and build the proposed system using their eYantra labs. Following a pre-selection in regional finals this year in Coimbatore, Ernakulum, Bangalore, Pune, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Noida, the 18 finalists present their implemented ideas at IIT Bombay on March 23-24, 2018. We are delighted to say that the team of Fr. Conceicao Rodrigues College of Engineering, Bandra with its project Automated Traffic Surveillance System, was one of the 18 finalists in the e-Yantra Ideas competition. This makes our team one of the top 2.83 percent of the contestants. It also won the Best Algorithm Design award.
