Student develops flood warning device

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 22 - A sixth semester student of the Plastic Technology diploma course at the Changsari-based Central Institute of Plastics Engineering and Technology (CIPET) has developed a low-cost flood warning device that can be used to forecast rain-induced urban floods effectively.

Jeetu Deuri, the 21-year-old student who has developed the device by using sensor circuits on a scale and an alarm and a digital meter in a tiffin box, said that the digital meter would indicate the rise in the water levels. At a crucial moment, the device alarm will ring to alert the people about any imminent danger.

The device can be made available to the people at the price of Rs 300 to Rs 400, he said. Jeetu took six months to develop the concept and after that, he required only one week to make the device. The device can be run on both AC current and dry battery cells as it requires only 3.5 volt power, he pointed out.

Jeetu said that he had earlier completed a one-year advanced diploma course in software and hardware maintenance and networking at the Ulubari-based Datacom College of Technology and Management here. Developing new devices is his hobby, he added.

Son of a farmer, Jeetu hails from Kolowlowa Deuri Gaon in Dibrugarh district. He is the youngest of the three sons of Ratneswar Deuri (52) and Jinawati Deuri (46).
