Meity Planetarium Innovation Challenge for Extended Reality Start-ups


#mygov #meity #india has launched the Planetarium Innovation Challenge for Indian start-ups and tech entrepreneurs. The challenge aims to bring together the tech firms and Start-ups (based out of India) with the potential to build an indigenous planetariums system software using latest technologies including #AugmentedReality #VirtualReality and #MixedReality.


Inspired by the #Chandrayaan launches, Indian Space Research Organization conducted the #ISRO Quiz Competition-2019 in collaboration with #MyGov where several schools, parents and enthusiastic mentors made it memorable through their active participation.

Planetarium Innovation Challenge was launched by MyGov India last week. The Registration is open till 10th of October.

The challenge invites applications from start-ups and tech entrepreneurs to develop state-of-the-art technology for our Planetariums. There is an opportunity for Planetariums in India to deploy new technologies (Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Merged Reality), especially for smaller cities and rural areas, all Made in India.

The Innovation Challenge is open to experts from all domains of Planetarium Technology

PROBLEM STATEMENT

Some planetariums in India use outdated technology with no O.E.M. support available. At the same time, it has been observed that planetariums worldwide are making use of the latest technology (A.R., V.R. and M.R.) and making their planetariums systems mobile.

OBJECTIVE

This Planetarium Innovation challenge aims to bring together the tech firms and Start-ups (based out of India) with the potential to build an indigenous planetariums system software using latest technologies (A.R., V.R. or M.R). Furthermore, making use of the latest technologies, few modern technologies where we have the potential to improve are:

  1. Use of State-of-art/ Original technology (A.R., V.R., M.R.)

  2. Hybrid Systems (HYBRID planetariums can show not only rich astronomical programming but can also range farther into programming in subjects such as Geology, Meteorology, Biology, Oceanography, and more)

  3. Portable Inflatable Dome PlanetariumsFor example SkyX, Stellarium, Taare Zameen Par

  4. Planetarium Technology includes (but not limited to) the following systems:


The first winner, second winner and third winner under the contest will get the cash prizes of five lakh, three lakh and two lakh rupees respectively.

The Planetarium Challenge perfectly aligns with the objective of the nation’s progressive digital transformation under the larger umbrella of Aatmanirbhar Bharat.
