Next tech lab students achieve yet another milestone in Hackathon Codebreak 1.0 organized by MIT ADT University, Pune on 21st and 22nd December, 2019. The team- Rushank Jain, Suraj Maharana, Omkar Ingale, and Ajay Kumar participated from SRM AP in this national level hackathon, where they competed with students from IIIT, BITS, Bennet University, K.J. Somaiya and many more. The panel of judges comprised of experienced personnel from IBM, Siemens, and Xpansion.
Our team built a Virtual Reality application that tackles tourism, medical and social issues. The students mitigated the challenge of not having a 360-degree camera by capturing images on their phone, and doing the laborious work of stitching more than 80 images and later, automated the process by utilizing their skills in OpenCV. The students surmounted all the quandaries and made it to the 1st runners up prize among 40 other teams.
The students expressed their gratitude to SRM University AP for providing the opportunity to attend this hackathon and for fortifying them throughout. “It was my first time participating in a competition at such a large platform. It was an amazing experience competing with so many brilliant minds and learning so much from the exchange. We are expecting 2020 to be full of achievements and fun”, says the young achiever of SRM AP- Rushak Jain.
