The AvaGuardians, the team from Sir Padampat Singhania University, Udaipur, embarked on a groundbreaking journey to address the critical problem statement, “Novel Technology for Early Detection and Mitigation of Avalanches,” posed by the Ministry of Defence. This team’s remarkable achievements in the Smart India Hackathon (SIH) Grand Finale hosted by the Ministry of Education, Government of India, held at Chandigarh Group of Colleges, Landran, Punjab, on December 19 and 20, 2023, have set them apart as national champions in innovation.

Out of 500 participating teams from across India, AvaGuardians emerged as one of the top 6 teams, showcasing their exceptional skills and dedication. The team’s success in the preliminary rounds earned them a coveted spot in the Grand Finale, where they faced a 36-hour hackathon challenge. The SIH Grand Finale provided a platform for AvaGuardians to present their innovative solution to a panel of evaluators comprising scientists from the Ministry of Defence. The team, mentored by Harsh Bansal and Rohit Bokade, showcased their ingenuity, problem-solving abilities, and technical prowess during the intense competition. The winning team comprised the following students:

1. Toshik Soni [22CS002485, B.Tech CSE II Year]
2. Dhruv Lodha [22CS002558, B. Tech CSE II Year]
3. Kusum Menaria [22CS002508, B. Tech CSE (AIML) II Year]
4. Mitali Thapa [22CS002602, B. Tech CSE (AIML) II Year]
5. Mohammed Tauqeer Raza [22CS002614, B. Tech CSE (AIML) II Year]
6. Wasfa Haider Kazmi [22CS002483, B. Tech CSE (AIML) II Year]

Our champions exhibited exemplary teamwork, technical skills, and resilience throughout the competition.

Harsh Bansal played a crucial role in guiding and mentoring the team and accompanied the students to the Grand Finale. Following discussions with scientists from DRDO within the Ministry of Defence, students now have an opportunity for a 6-week internship at their facility. Mentor Harsh Bansal will be composing an email to formally confirm this opportunity. The AvaGuardians’ hard work and determination bore fruit as they clinched the first position at the national level, receiving accolades from both peers and industry experts. Their remarkable achievement was further celebrated with a prize money of 1 Lakh rupees, recognising their outstanding contribution to addressing the Ministry of Defence’s challenge.

We express gratitude to our Vice-Chancellor Sir and the leadership for comprehending the project’s requirements and providing steadfast support to the team.
