Error in network creation of Hyperledger Fabric network usin AWS blockchain templates for Hyperledger Fabric

We are trying to build a blockchain-based solution for the forensic application of vehicular accidents. The accident data of the vehicle is stored to a blockchain network in hyperledger fabric, so that no one can tamper the data, only authenticated authorities who have access to the hyperledger fabric network ledger can access to it which we make use of the channel concept in the hyperledger framework.
So the data from the IoT device (currently we build an app to access data such as accelerometer, gyroscope and GPS from smartphones) is been transferred to the Hyperledger Fabric network. We try to create a Fabric network in the AWS blockchain template for Hyperledger Fabric. Then from this hyperledger fabric, all the organizations who are part of this network such as forensic, insurance, manufacturers etc, are the stakeholders who can access the data in the network via the channel (channels helps to bring abstractions ie each stakeholder will only know what is necessary for them).
So we try to create the blockchain network in AWS using Blockchain template for hyperledger fabric. The template for network creation is actually inside a cloud formation stack, which is a service provided by AWS, so we need to create the stack to create the network. Before creating this stack we need to create a VPC, EC2 instance, IAM roles and policies. So we follow according to the below youtube video to create it.
After completing all the above prerequisite, we need to create the template inside the stack. Inside the stack we need to provide stack with the name of the stakeholders in the network ie, forensic, manufacturers etc.. Name of the VPC, EC2 instance ID, all the prerequisite details we created earlier.
When clicking the create a stack, it takes some time to create it, after some time it shows the stack is getting failed and getting rollback, there will be two stacks one is a nested stack of the parent stack, which contains all the artefacts for the hyperledger fabric network it is one which gets failed first, then the parent stack which contains the link to the EC2 instance.

Integration part ie transferring data and accessing ledger can be done only after this stack creation and network spun up.

We try to find more about the error so far this is what we got from it.
So we run user data commands inside instance via SSH. Then error popped up when we run command for network artefacts.
Recently, I got a chance to work work the SeeedStudio T1000 tracker and I made a tracker and data logger with it. It comes with a LoRa module to transmit the data and has an inbuilt temperature and light sensor. The device is very easy to set up and get-started and I can say the experience of switching from different LoRa network servers is very pleasant and straightforward, same for the integration. I chose Ubidots to visualise the data captured.
I also like the mobile application very much, it’s so easy to pair and change the tracker configuration on the go. I love it.
I will experiment more and share my insights here. let me know if you want to know any specific details about the SenseCAP T1000.
It’s live on Kickstarter and you can pledge for $29 for single T1000 tracker, you will get 1 piece T1000 with 3 months of free trial service on the SenseCAP platform. Take a look : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/seeed/sensecap-t1000-track-what-you-care-with-no-boundaries
@dipu_varghese Hi, How does it go? Would like to know about the updates or anything I can do to help you.
@zainmuhammed Oh that's cool. Let me also take a look at the stability analysis of a drone and get back to you.
@salmanfaris I'm building a payload-releasing drone under 2kg (micro class). and the entire structure builds using carbon fiber and ABS plastic.
@zainmuhammed Curious to know, What kind of drone are you building and what kind of material are you using?
