A 16-year-old kid uses technology to solve real-life problems
It’s been quite long since we have been talking about the urgency of ‘Golden Hour’ during an accident and the importance of giving way to an ambulance. Students from across Oakridge schools have been taking part in spreading the word through various activities and campaigns.
On the other hand, Aarnav Ojha, a 16-year-old kid breaks new ground to support this campaign using AI and robotics. This grade 11 student from Oakridge, one of the top International Schools in Bachupally, has come up with an innovative idea to reach more people in order to inculcate discipline and civic sense in people. Understanding that mobile gaming is a big trend today, Aarnav developed an ingenious mobile game app called “Give Way to Ambulance” using 3D format a.k.a. Unity3D game engine.
This 3D game targets the mobile game players and aims to guide them on how they can be a part of saving someone’s life by giving way to an ambulance. The main objective of this game is to let ambulances reach the hospital within 90 seconds. Because the initial assessment and early commencement of the treatment to the patient is very critical in the first hour often referred to as the ‘Golden Hour’. And ambulances play a pivotal role in that period to make them reach to the hospital. Aarnav’s game app will teach the ‘players’ to give way to the ambulance when it’s approaching which would help the emergency vehicle to easily cross through the traffic.
Additionally, this game is a demonstration of what happens when the ambulance fails to get the passage during an emergency. The game consists of two types of ambulances; but instead of controlling the emergency vehicle, the game players will control the traffic. Aarnav is the sole owner of the game design idea and coding. However, he took the help of Hyderabad’s leading game company – Gamitronics for the artwork of “Give Way to Ambulance” game app. This game was recently launched in the Technopreneurship event held in Hyderabad and aims to showcase at the global stage.

Several Oakridgers like Arnav are taking it upon themselves to better our world each day. From running initiative like ‘Give Way to Ambulance‘ across the country to teaching under-privileged children, to taking up water conservation projects; the students are doing their bit to make our world a better place.
