Safety on Streets (SOS) Chal­lenge

In part­ner­ship with the Malaysian Global In­no­va­tion Camp; Cre­ativ­ity Cen­tre (MaGIC), the Road Safety Depart­ment Malaysia (JKJR), and Malaysian Dig­i­tal Econ­omy Cor­po­ra­tion (MDEC), the Tune Pro­tect SOS Chal­lenge takes a stand for im­proved safety for all road users — in­clud­ing pedes­tri­ans. The Chal­lenge is open to ter­tiary level stu­dents of all back­grounds, calling for unique con­cepts of road safety ap­pli­ca­tions that res­onate with the younger gen­er­a­tion, with the in­ten­tion to develop the idea into ap­pli­ca­tions in the fu­ture. Par­tic­i­pat­ing teams must be able to ar­tic­u­late how their ideas would: el­e­vate aware­ness of road safety is­sues or cul­ti­vate be­havioural changes; stand out among ex­ist­ing of­fer­ings; and be user-friendly.
