Client Background

Spanning over 7516.6km, India has the 18th longest coastline in the world. The country's coastal regions witnessed massive trade activities, including major import and export of crucial goods. Besides, a huge community of fishermen and indigenous locals live in the coastal regions of the nation.

Requirement

Subjected to frequent natural disasters and being the most affected population group in the event of abnormal weather activities, the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) and W2S Solutions collaborated to build a data-centered Ocean Observation System.

Problems

Business Challenges

01.

Setting up the buoys with enough reinforcements is tough. There are many factors that affect the buoys' conditions.

02.

Processing large volumes of data need a solid analyzing strategy. On top of this, the nature of ocean data is highly complex.

03.

The efficiency of the data depends on the conditions of the buoys. The maintenance of these buoys is also relatively more complicated.

04.

Arriving at a conclusion is highly contextual and needs Oceanology and climate experts to reduce the margin of error.

Methodologies

Our Process

01

Setting up the premises

Our priority is to identify parameters that offers efficient data from the buoys.

02

Collect and accumulate data in a central system

The real time data from buoys are collected and transmitted to Cloud Server with GPS Satellites and then to data platform for further analysis.

03

Identifying patterns and anomalies

Our intelligent data system leverages AI and ML to spot repetitive patterns and abnormal data to identify threats and register changes in the central system. This allows the experts to take action on such events instantly.

04

Crafting insights and visualization

Oceanology and climate experts analyze the data to deduce information regarding the climate and ocean activities. This information is converted into simple terms and is displayed in a cross-platform application for instant response.
