    We are developing an Autonomous Vehicle(AV) to be used as a testing platform for researchers. Also, It helps in the development of safe vehicles for handicapped people and research in academia.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Development on AV is slow in Pakistan due to the unavailability of testing facilities. In academia, our project provides a testing platform previously unavailable. Also, our project provides safe transportation for the handicapped and promotes autonomous technology.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Our project targets academic researchers at various education levels across the country needing a model to test their research, as well as the handicapped people. Our project provides a foundation for safety for future transport which shall be beneficial for all audiences in transportation.
How will the solution works
    Our solution will showcase efficient autonomous driving in urban infrastructure. Initially, we generate an optimal trajectory to reach a goal destination using optimization techniques including path planning and AI for cognitive decisions, we'll employ Autonomous Steering, Control Systems and Deep Learning to maneuver the vehicle in the desired trajectory. The efficient development and integration of algorithms and control hardware is an integral part of real-time operation.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Tech-giants in other countries but no competitor in Pakistan. We aim to create a bridgehead for the futuristic developments, leading to self-reliance in Pakistan. Our solution uniquely targets academic research, go-kart autonomous vehicle and mini urban concept vehicle including handicap persons.
