Smart Shoe for Employee Tracking in Work-site
Explain your project in details:
A technology to track of workers in different worksites in real time. We developed a smart shoe which mainly uses 2 sensors. Motion sensors (tilt sensor) and piezoelectric inside the shoe sole. The output is processed and transmitted (Up to 1.1 Km) in real time. The data is processed using ATMEGA and the worker's attendance and real-time monitoring can be viewed through mobile or uploading to a common database using IOT. The total price for a pair only comes under 20 USD. The innovative approach uses cheap technology so that it can be cost-effective. It will help to monitor the workers in real-time by identifying their presence at the work site.
Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
The technology will be cheap and affordable. Helps to monitor the workers at the construction site. Prevent accidents on site. Helps the good utilization of human resources. The product will help to create a safe working site for workers and also helps the corporates to capture attendance of workers working at construction sites without manual intervention.
Sustainability and future plans
Develop a perfect shoe considering the environmental conditions of the working site. Try to connect potential consumers. The financing resources are under lack, so we need funding from investors or capitalists to develop the shoe for the scale-up stage.
