Description: Ash leakage is one of the burning issues which is highly neglected by people due to its poor popularity. These toxins when inhaled get lodged in the lungs triggering lung diseases, respiratory distress, and heart damage. Not many people are aware of it and is generally ignored. So, keeping people’s safety and health into consideration, we have come up with a bot which detects any kind of ash leakages in power plants and notifies us. The working of the bot is, when there’s any ash leakage in the pipes, the piezo electric sensors sense the ash impacts and alerts the people nearby by giving out a siren.
APATBANDHAVA in Sanskrit means savior. By building this co-bot, we are aiming to mass reduce the damage caused by ash leakage. During this process, we’ll be using different kinds of systems to make the cause happen which involves using piezoelectric sensors that would be detecting ash particles, application of ultrasonic sensors for avoiding obstacles, and implementation of IR sensor for the co-bot movement. Alongside detecting the leakage, it is designed such that it sends the location of the leakage to the operator with the help of GPS/GSM module. This co-bot can be easily operated manually. The main components used in our bot are ARDUINO, SERVO MOTORS, PIEZOELECTRIC SENSOR, ULTRASONIC SENSOR, IR SENSOR. The basic cost of our bot is around INR 6300. Our target customers can be reached through B2B-power plants.
