THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The people living under the threat of a collapse of the Mullaperiyar dam have all the reasons to thank the developers at Technopark-based Schogini Systems. The mobile application showcased by the company at ‘Surakshaayanam’ can send warning signals to even distant places, if a fissure is found on the surface.  

 The solar-powered wireless system can be used as a mobile application and also as a separate equipment in strategic areas. “The application displayed here is a simple one. More than seven sensors are needed to detect a dam break. Otherwise, it may produce a false alarm. Since it works on wi-fi, the warning signals can be sent anywhere,” said G Ajith, project manager of Schogini systems.

 In case of a major disaster, it is often difficult to find out the details of the victims. A QR code developed by the company can include the entire information about the victims and casualties. The small-sized code has a large storage capacity and it can include volumes of information in a small space. The smartphone application can read the required information from the small code. Even videos can be uploaded for detailed information. The GPS system in mobiles too can track the area of incident and also identify a safer location for the victim.  

 Though there are a number of stalls in Surakshaayanam, the stall of Schogini is much advanced in terms of technology and innovative ideas. The stall is popular among the visitors as the organisers are also inviting ideas from them. “We are confident of converting many ideas into applications. So many interesting ideas have come up,” Ajith said.

The suggestions include a safety system for fishermen, tsunami warning system and a lot more.

 The employees of Schogini are also in touch with Revenue officials in implementing the projects. During the exhibition, other organisations too have approached them for developing new programmes. “INCOIS, which provides Tsunami alerts, held talks with us on the possibility of developing a better warning system,” Ajith said.
