The Reflections Automotive Challenge


An amazing hiring opportunity awaits Graduates, Startups, and Aspiring Individuals who could soon join one of the fastest-growing innovation-driven companies based out of the US & India, and also meet the Google Automotive Services Leaders at the challenge!

Reflections Info System is bringing you The Reflections Automotive Challenge powered by Bloombloom, in association with the Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP) & Kerala Startup Mission (KSUM) under the Govt. of Kerala, Start2Scale Consulting, Technoparktoday, and B-HUB where students can help solve one of the most pressing problems in the rapidly transforming automotive industry!

The automotive industry is one of the largest industries in the world by the revenue it generates. As technology advances the opportunities, advancement, and challenges increase multifold in the industry across the globe. The world is now looking for autonomous cars and steadily looking to bridge the gap between human interventions and technology to make a car that suits all your needs. There are hundreds of problems that require solutions and one of the pressing problems in the industry is if our car faces a problem, which we aren’t equipped to fix or diagnose, what would we do? Especially, if it is in the middle of nowhere?

The vehicles of today and the future require highly versatile onboard diagnostic systems that can detect and recognize errors and possible malfunctions. There is a huge demand for new and improved solutions that can help achieve this. The need of the hour is for diagnostic systems that can engage the self-repair features once the issue is identified or ones that can give directions to the drivers or technicians about the correct remedial actions when a DTC code is produced or an issue 'lights up'.

1. Find a solution that gives the guidelines/ remedial actions for the diagnostic warning. The solution is open to the contestants in terms of their understanding of the problem statement, depending on their perspective of ideas and innovation.

2. Few sample DTC codes along with their descriptions and solutions shall be shared for reference.

3. A complete end-to-end solution needs to be built with a UI.

4. For the Phase 1 Ideathon, a proposal of the idea needs to be submitted and presented. The shortlisted teams will be taken forward to the next round. The proposal should cover the following sections.

  • Solution Description

  • Value Proposition

  • Solution Architecture

  • Technology Stack

  • Non-Functional Requirements

5. Phase 1 Ideathon evaluation will be done based on the following factors and weightage.

  •  Innovative Idea: 50%

  • Technical Aspects (Architecture, concept, and solution): 25%

  • Solution Extensibility: 25% 

6. A final presentation needs to be done for a given duration after Phase 2 Prototyping is completed.

7. Phase 2 Prototyping evaluation will be done based on the following factors and weightage.

  • Business Value and Solution Pitch: 40%

  • Performance and Operational Excellence: 30%

  • Demo (Architecture, concept): 15%

  • User Experience: 15%

FLY Ambulance

FLY Ambulance is the open key of risk people for inaccessible areas people we reach out all the location in all the situation to get sick people it will face the high traffic in emergency time


Smart Diagnostic System for Autonomous Vehicles

Smart Diagnostic System for Autonomous Vehicles is a technology stack for complete diagnosis of the vehicle with error detection and self-repair features which guides the driver with suitable instructions at hard times and also provides/maintains a safe/comfortable driving atmosphere for the driver and safe travelling atmosphere for the passengers.


Early Damage detection

In these scenario the sensor can detect the damaged body parts quickly .The software can compare the data from body parts of vehicle and 3d diagram that programed in it

Vysakh Cv


mechatronics, artificial intelligence, and multi-agent systems are some tech stuff that can automate every task of an automobile. Powerful device drivers is the only solution for self repairing tasks. This project give a view of how , where ,what technology can be used to solve self troubleshooting issues.

Chucking viscosity, density, temperature and oil level of the engine oil in an automobile, and report if any of which falls below the permissible level

Low engine oil level can cause your engine to underperform significantly, something which is again caused due to delayed car service and aggressive driving. It is not all healthy to make your car run at low engine oil level, it causes wear and tear of many engine in order to prevent any major damages to the engine. Timely engine oil chucking is must. To check oil property sensor (FPS 2800 fluid property sensor) is used that will not only oil level, but also viscosity, density and temperature.

temprature recognisation

This project gets a solution for a car to recognize the solution for the increase in its temperature and make sure not to get it worse, which is the most frequent problem in day to day traveling. I am sure this would be very helpful for all of us . Thank you

Vanali - One-stop solution for all automobile diagnostics and emergency services

The device consist of various sensors that helps in easy tracking and diagnosis of automobiles. It is an IoT system which is backed by the "Vanali" app that helps in easy monitoring of the various sections of one's vehicle.


A application to allow users to diagnose malfunctions in their vehicles by audio deep learning informs the user about the issue at hand, and also gives the severity and service recommendation for the same.


Fault detection and solution providing system

The aim of the project is to provide the best solution for the detected problem.

Self protection

In this if any type of accident came in car , at that point of time a protective layer ( not airbag the pic that I uploaded)will came from car and it will be help full also prevent from fire,road and water accident .


Visualising Vehicle Diagnostics with AR

The idea helps the Driver understand the DTC code by putting AR version of fault.The DTC code is transmitted to forum where Video Consultation can be taken,vehicle being in remote area. The In-Car App would Display an IDEAL SPEED for the vehicle to eliminate engine idling .

Basically our project is to protect lithium iron battery used in electric cars from exploding and save battery life by controlling temperature using thermo method

Ananda Vaishnav


An intelligent connectivity is established between a server and vehicles of similar model.Our server collects all the information from the DTC and uses a predictive model to predict for failures that may occur after analyzing the current state of the car and comparing the other vechicles of same model.
