Abstract:
    ARCS (Automatically Retractable Car Shade) is a small and light umbrella for cars that can be placed in the trunk of the car and can be deployed on the roof within 10 seconds.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    - Cars parked without shade can reach up to 72°C from inside. Cold drink cans placed on the dashboard can also burst. - Parking shade is not always available. - Car cover takes long to deploy, thus never used by the drivers. - ARCS is automatic and can be deployed less then 10 seconds.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   All car owners of hot countries will benefit from ARCS. It gives 30°C difference when used. Considering our standing and the reach of competitors, we expect to provide more than 1,000 units of ARCS in the first year of launch.
How will the solution works
    ARCS has an umbrella that can cover the whole car. This umbrella is opened and closed by a linear actuator. The linear actuator takes the command from a small handheld remote control. ARCS blocks the sunlight at a height of 2 feet from the roof, thus avoids the heat conduction and the greenhouse effect.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Competitor brands like Lanmodo and Zhejiang Sunclose Technology are being sold at Rs 40,000 - 45,000. ARCS costs less than Rs 8,000 (82% less) thus it has the potential to capture their market share.
