InoCrowd specializes in providing services to generate ideas and solve problems, based on its own interactive open innovation technological platform, which reaches a network of experts from around the world, to accelerate and enhance innovation in companies investing in research and development (R&D).

Anyone can participate in this Challenge, with more details available on InoCrowd’s platform.




Roads are prone to various objects such as debris, fallen branches from trees, abandoned vehicles, construction materials, car parts, mattresses, mid-sized run-over animals, and other obstacles that pose significant safety risks to motorists and pedestrians. Traditional manual methods of removing these objects require workers to be exposed to potentially hazardous environments, making them susceptible to accidents, injuries, and even fatalities.

As the Seeker organization strives for efficiency and safety, Solvers are asked to develop solutions that can deploy innovative technologies to mitigate hazards associated with manual road object removal.



The primary objective of this challenge is to develop an automated solution that can efficiently and safely remove objects from roads without the direct involvement of human workers. The solution should prioritize employee safety, ensuring that they are not exposed to dangerous road conditions during the object removal process.

The proposed automated solution should ensure that workers are not required to physically cross the street or step out of their vehicles during the object removal process. This will minimize their exposure to oncoming traffic and potential hazards.

InoCrowd is primarily interested in solutions with expected benefits described in more detail on the InoCrowd platform. The Seeker is also not interested in solutions that have an adverse environmental impact, utilise a mobile application, or include towing any trailer/other sort of equipment.

Your submission should meet these minimum must-have requirements in order to be considered for the €5,000 award:

  1. Safety Measures - Effectiveness of safety features and risk reduction for employees.
  2. Detection and Identification - Accuracy and speed of object detection and identification.
  3. Object Removal - Efficiency and safety of the object removal process.
  4. Scalability - The solution's adaptability to different scenarios and scalability potential.
  5. Cost-effectiveness - Feasibility and affordability of implementing the solution.
