In the aftermath of a devastating car accident, recovery may seem like a long and fruitless journey. You’re not alone, however; many inspiring individuals have managed not only to survive, but also thrive after suffering horrific injuries.

What it does

Accidento is a web application, where people from all over the world can have an insight, where the accident occurred recently.

  • It displays the accidents occurred in major places
  • It displays the entire summary of the accident

How we built it

Challenges we ran into

  • The vizualization of map took very long time that expected.
  • Extraction of geolocations from the rendered article also took a very long time.

Installation Instructions

The portal is primarily a django based application, and to set it up we require to have python environment with django and other project dependencies installed. Though one can work with the project without an virtual environment, it is recommended to use one so as to avoid conflicts with other projects.

  1. Make sure that you have Python 3, python-3-devel, gcc, virtualenv, and pip installed.
  2. Clone the repository
        $ git clone
        $ cd Defender
  1. Create a python 3 virtualenv, and activate the environment. bash $ virtualenv -p python3 $ source bin/activate
  2. Install the project dependencies $ pip install -r requirements.txt ### After Setting Up From now when you start your work, run source bin/activate inside the project repository and you can work with the django application as usual -
  • python migrate - set up database
  • python createsuperuser - create admin user
  • python runserver - run the project locally

Accomplishments that we're proud of

What we learned

  • ## What's next for Accidento
    • Planned to develop mobile application that would give a user-friendly experience.
    • Improvising the Extraction and Vizualisation part.
    • Planned to develop a module, whenever the accident happened the information would be passed to the nearby hospitals.
