Problem Statment(s) : 2

Explaining the general problem statement in simple terms: 1. CWC operates warehouses for scientific storage of 400 plus commodities across PAN INDIA. Many of the warehouses are located at remote places across PAN India. 2. The internet connectivity provided either through leased line or MPLS or Broadband or 2/3/4G. 3. This type of connectivity comes at high cost or at some places the connectivity is not feasible or weak or fluctuates, which results in non usage of software application at these remote places. Expected deliverables : 1. Low cost IT solution preferably around software controlled devices having capability to host multiple SIMs of different service providers of 2/3/4G Internet service providers. 2. The device considers the 2/3/4G connectivity of one or more SIMs of different service provider, in case their signal strength is adequate. And accordingly provide the uninterrupted internet connectivity to the users at these remote warehouses. 3. Additionally, the device can aggregate the 2/3/4G internet bandwidth of multiple SIMs of different Telecom companies for usage of more software users. Sample data: Can visit warehouses for sampling.

Explaining the general problem statement in simple terms: 1. Central Warehousing Corporation (CWC) is into scientific storage and handling services for more than 400 commodities include Agricultural produce, Industrial raw-materials, finished goods and variety of hygroscopic and perishable items. 2. Storage loss of food grains and perishables goods are being controlled through quality control practices including periodic chemical treatment , recording of moisture and other parameters, proper documentation , regular inspection , age analysis , sanitation , physical condition of warehouse. 3. Further storage loss due to atmospheric moisture beyond threshold results in infestation etc and hence damages the food grains/perishables. Expected deliverables: 1. Low cost IT solution preferably around Internet of the things (IoT) sensor and IoT data integration to existing application software. The sensor is expected to auto capture the atmospheric moisture and temperature inside the warehouse. 2. Based on moisture and temperature data so captured, the software should do appropriate data analytics and send timely alert to concern officials of CWC for mitigation and remedial actions arising due to moisture and temperature inside the warehouse. 3. Additionally, IoT sensor can also capture fire, earthquake etc and can alert the respective nearest authority like Fire Station, Hospital, and Police besides alerting CWC officials for mitigation. Sample data: Data to either simulated participants or can visit warehouses for sampling. Some of the quality controls practices documents are available at its website, www.cewacor.nic.in under Documents/Circulars-Guidelines/Technical tab.
