Today, India is one of the worst flood-affected countries in the world. India with 20% fatality rate is one of the worst flood-affected countries in the world. The Bihar state of India witnessed one of its worst floods in the monsoon months, i.e. July and August. Due to this flood, around 3000+ people lost their lives and the houses of 20 lakhs people got damaged. Due to lack of information many people lost their life and this motivated us to work on our project SAATHI- the Saviour
What it does
Our Project gives real-time prediction about future floods and as well as our hardware provide a easy way to measure water level.
How we built it
We built our hardware using JSNSR04T waterproof ultrasonic sensors for measuring the water level at every particular time interval, NRF24L01 for node to node and node to gate connectivity, GSM module for sending data to our server and Arduino nano will controlling all the modules and sensors.
Challenges we ran into
The biggest challenge was transmitting the hardware data to the sagemaker from various stages and also some of my teammates were working on AWS platform for the first time so it was two way journey of learning and exploring for us.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of that we have successfully able to make the entire project and provide a better solution for flood prediction with a minimum cost of 20$ which can be less if produced on large scale
What we learned
The most important skill we learned is to connect the microcontroller to AWS Gateway Api and the power of team work
What's next for SAATHI- The Saviour
By using more accurate and a large amount of dataset we can predict more accurate results and forecasting of Flood
