In a bid to prevent rising kitchen fires, a group of young innovators, technologists and engineers has developed a cooking gas alarm and SMS system to prevent accidents due to leak either from stove or rubber pipe.
Even when no one is at home, the resident gets an SMS on his or her mobile phone about the impending danger in case of a gas leak with the help of the innovative gadget put together by a Bhubaneswar-based company 'RoboticWares'.
''We are working to make common man's life more simple and secure. We are targeting military, medical, consumer and industrial sector as a potential market of robots," says CEO of RoboticWares, Kushal Nahata.
Claiming that some 7,000 people suffer burns every year due to cooking gas leak, he said fire can be prevented with the help of remote gadgets which can help switch off the cylynder after getting an alert.
Another significant addition to the company's kitty of innovative products is Remote Video Surveillance known as 'Far Eye' which provides a complete software solution for office or home security, he said.
"Far eye monitors home or office round the clock, captures motion event using webcam and saves into compressed video clips. It enables one to remote video surveillance from anywhere in the world," said the chief technology officer of RoboticWares, Gaurav Srivastav.
