Ferous Oxide

Alcohol and driving is a lethal combination which is best avoided. Yet, we find people neglecting this simple road safety rule and risking their own lives and the lives of others, by driving under the influence of alcohol.
4.6%* of the deaths on the roads in India occur because of the intake of alcohol/drugs.

The current process of checking for alcoholic intoxication by using breathalyzers manually, comes with its own set of limitations.

There is resistance from drivers and workers while following the protocol. It is also an unnecessary hassle to put every individual under the moral scanner, one by one, using the equipment.

It is imperative to find a more effective and quicker method to detect alcohol content in people behind the wheels – one which does not require a person to manually check for traces via the breathalyzer at all.

Your solution will be judged on the following parameters:

  • Rich Technical Content
  • Simplicity 
  • Ease of Implementation
  • Cost Effectiveness
  • Innovation
