Stage 3: Proof of Concept

Many people shelter in Himalayas without even knowing that slow creep movement is happening in their area.This could result in large landslides causalities when a heavy rain occurs.Neither they have affordable system that could alarm them.

Problem

Many people shelter in Himalayas without even knowing that slow creep movement is happening in their area.This could result in large landslides causalities when a heavy rain occurs.Neither they have affordable system that could alarm them.

}

Solution

Affordable wireless sensors for low income families to install self owned slope movement alarm system.

Target Beneficiaries

Public people residing in Mountainous regions that are susceptible to slope failures.

Mission and Vision

It can be applied anywhere in the world that has rain fall induced landslides and could be scaled to acres of land.

Competitive Advantage

Self Deployable, Low cost and scalability. Anybody could procure from market and deploy in their home to check if slope movement has triggered.If triggered,then they could to relocate to safe places. Area of 40-50 acres could be monitored by single system.
