OpenHack: Open River Monitoring System for flood prediction



  • So what is OpenHack, it’s an immersive open hackathon where students, professionals, researchers, makers and anyone with an interest in technology gather together to build a single project, disaster management, awareness and alertness platform in two days. I’ve been part of the hackathon as IoT/Hardware mentor from MakeGram community.

    OpenHack is very different from the normal hackathon, in the normal hackathon, it’s all about competition and everyone building a different solution, but here every single one working on the same problem and the same solution collaboratively. 🥰

    I have written a detailed blog on this and you can find here : OpenHack 2019 👨‍💻: 48hrs Collaborative hackathon Summary

    This thread is to keep a log on Open River Monitoring System



  • Update - Meeting Summary:

    Agenda: Sensor Selection and Connectivity option
    Time & Date : 10.15 PM to 11.20 PM (23/Sep/2019)
    Attendees: Swalah, Akash, Rafi, Alex and Salman

    We started the discussion from what we have done so far, and we know that we were stuck at sensor and connectivity selection.

    Cellular over LoRa WAN: LoRa WAN is not a good option since we need to set up the complete infrastructure from scratch. Also currently we are only planning to deploy 10 test nodes, it will not be worth setting it up just for that. On the other side, Cellular is already an established network which is feasible to manage 10 devices and can be implemented rapidly. Thus we are planning to go with cellular in the first batch. (Please share your feedback too, it's very important).

    Sensor parameters: After got into a conclusion on the connectivity, we started discussing the sensor parameters to be collected for the analysis and prediction. They are :
    -> Water level (High Priority )
    -> Water Quality
    -> River Flowmeter
    -> Rain Gauge

    Since we only got a few sensors details in past weeks, we decided to list them again based on the parameters and priority. We distributed them based on attendees interest.

    ToDo:
    -> All members are requested to submit sensor details before the next meeting which is scheduled for 7th December 2019 (High Priority)
    -> Documentation: If possible add our Mission and Vision to our GitHub page

    NB: Next team meeting will be on 7th December 2019 from 09.00 PM to 10:00 PM

  • What are objects?

    Jeff Goodell: Would you explain, in simple terms, exactly what object-oriented software is?

    Steve Jobs: Objects are like people. They’re living, breathing things that have knowledge inside them about how to do things and have memory inside them so they can remember things. And rather than interacting with them at a very low level, you interact with them at a very high level of abstraction, like we’re doing right here.

    Here’s an example: If I’m your laundry object, you can give me your dirty clothes and send me a message that says, “Can you get my clothes laundered, please.” I happen to know where the best laundry place in San Francisco is. And I speak English, and I have dollars in my pockets. So I go out and hail a taxicab and tell the driver to take me to this place in San Francisco. I go get your clothes laundered, I jump back in the cab, I get back here. I give you your clean clothes and say, “Here are your clean clothes.”

    You have no idea how I did that. You have no knowledge of the laundry place. Maybe you speak French, and you can’t even hail a taxi. You can’t pay for one, you don’t have dollars in your pocket. Yet I knew how to do all of that. And you didn’t have to know any of it. All that complexity was hidden inside of me, and we were able to interact at a very high level of abstraction. That’s what objects are. They encapsulate complexity, and the interfaces to that complexity are high level.

  • This webinar is focussing on learning Git VCS, a distributed version control system for tracking changes during practical software development.

    We will be exploring the usage of various git commands, plugins/extensions and branching-models based on real-world contexts.

    The session is targetting absolute beginners with minimum or no experience with git, But a mindset to optimize and improve work efficiency and productivity by learning and exploring new tool-chains and strategies is a must!
