1.what is the problem it is solving? A: 1. people getting into animal zones and risking their lives. 2.animals coming into living areas escaping from zoo. 2.List out statistics/authentic reports/any information online which justifies the problem you are trying to solve is a real problem. A: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUXkDKTZTQ8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OJt3FCrh6A http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3616453/New-video-footage-Harambe-shows-400-pound-gorilla-HOLDING-HANDS-four-year-old-boy-fell-zoo-enclosure-witnesses-say-animal-acting-protectively.html and many more. 3.Names of people/stakeholders with who have you discussed the problem? A: Subhanda Devi, Director of Nehru Zoological Park Muralidhar, Security Curator head, Nehru Zoological Park Laxman, Curator 2, Nehru Zoological Park Pattanaik, Director, Biodiversity Department Priyanka, Director, Forest Dept. (Karthika Vanam) 4.who are your target audience/users of the system? A: zoological parks, Forest Dept, Biodiversity Dept. 5.Statistics to justify your problem? A: https://youtu.be/ljiq_x5uyDE http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3616453/New-video-footage-Harambe-shows-400-pound-gorilla-HOLDING-HANDS-four-year-old-boy-fell-zoo-enclosure-witnesses-say-animal-acting-protectively.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5-95bFXlpSI (killed gorilla to rescue toddler). they are many articles published. The zoo authorities also complained about the same. 6. what are the key features of your solution. A: 1. Using voice prompts warning people if they are crossing the edges 2. Notify the security controller through a text(SMS) & mail 3. Animal escape notification 7.What are existing solutions. A: Only monitoring animals through security cams. Providing security gaurds. There are no such solutions available or in practise. only we got through some journals which propose for animal protection in zoo. http://www.keltroncorp.com/pdfs/zoo-application-note.pdf 8. how is your solution different from others regarding cost/features/size/technology. A(I) other solution they are just monitoring through cams at security rooms. They don’t have any security solution in alerting them. using sensors giving statutory warning to people if they are crossing the boundary at animal zones (wild tigers) through voice notes. Also alerting security control rooms. (ii)as no such solution exists in live,no clue about cost and size. 9.Draw the technology architecture of your solution. 10.identify important technology components. (i) ultrasonic sensor(HC-SR04) (ii)raspberry pi (iii)APR module with speaker(APR33A3) (iv)Logitech cam(USB) 11.what is your strategy in getting your first 10 customers. A: making the security system smarter such that they can avoid accidents with ease Explain how we can control these incidents by explaining our key features Making them understand the necessity of the product in zoo.
