Smart India Hackathon :: IT Requirements and Guidelines for Students.

Sr.
IT Requirements and Guidelines for Teams
1
Each team member should get his/her own laptop along with the required hardware. If possible, keep 1 laptop extra per team to avoid last minute failures. Each team will be allowed to use only 6 laptops during the competition. 
2
In case team require machines (PC) from the organizers, then they need to inform in advance. In such cases, only desktops will be provided, if available.
3
Wifi Internet connectivity will be provided at the center but our previous experience is that when large number of participants simultaneously start downloading big tools/libraries from net, then the internet speed get highly compromised and teams end up wasting lot of time. This is simply not accepted. It is recommended that teams come with machines pre-installed with required technology stack, so that dependency on internet is minimal. 
4
If network connectivity is an integral part of solution's requirement then we recommend that team gets its own 3G Dongles, Hotspots to avoid last minute glitches. 
5
As team members are expected to work in collaboration, team should get one 8 Port Network Switch and 6 LAN cables which will help them create team specific LAN for sharing data among themselves. (No reimbursement from organizers) 
Click here for a Step by Step procedure to create a LAN (If possible please suggest us a better link or video which we can integrate here for the benefit of other students)  
OR
Please get a Pen Drives or Network cables (CAT5) to transfer data from 1 laptop to another. This process is bit tedious as compared to the earlier process. 
6
If teams are bringing any prototypes hardware kits required to display their solution,  then they should make sure that the hardware are in working condition and fully tested before the actual competition. Organizers will not be responsible for any damages caused to the individual or property. 
7
Once team has finished building its application, then it should keep all the data ready for organizers to copy. The copy of these applications will be submitted to NIC repository of open source tools in due course of time.
8
During the registration process all team members need to sign an undertaking stating that ‘the team will abide with all the licensing terms and conditions of all the tools/software they use during the 'Grand Finale' of Smart India Hackathon 2017 and the Organizers will not be liable/responsible for any violation of any of the licensing terms or misuse of software/hardware by the participating team or team members’.
9
All open source tools used during the development of solution has to be acknowledged.

  42. Respected Sir,
    Sir we are a team who is working on an Aadhaar linked android application to detect impersonation.
    Sir only few devices support the Aadhaar API, and the Aadhaar servers i.e KUA and AUA, both are paid and costly ones. Purchasing them wont be feasible.
    As there is no open source solution for this. We need the sample data of some aadhar along with bio-metric data or complete access to the database.
    So, can it be provided for implementation? Bio-technology ministry will provide us the API with fingerprint scanner?

    Or please provide with alternate solution. as without these, the Aadhaar based app cannot be created.
    And we also need the sample data of registered students who have done registration for the examination so that we have some sample data to work on.
    And mandatory things that we need for the application development-
    1.Sample of registered student details applied for the examination.
    2.Need registered API for Aadhaar KUA services
    3.Fingerprint scanner specific to the select Aadhaar KUA service provider for Android.

    This is the link:
    https://indiastack.org/aadhaar/

    Services provided are:
    Aadhaar Bridge(Most Preferable)
    E-Mudhra
    Aadhaar API etc

    Please reply as soon as possible.
    Even if you are not providing us the API key, please just inform that we will be given which API so that we can work accordingly.


    Regards,
    B2B Developers.
