Flood Prediction and Disaster Management (FloodAlert)
Siddheshwari Raut | Pranjali Vaidya | Pranav Gupta | Prof. Rohit Barve
Abstract: FloodAlert basically works in prototype phase, where it detects the potential flood levels and sends an alert to the residents for evacuation. In this, the user simply clicks a photo of the dam on his smart phone. The photos are clicked before the dam overows and oods the nearby areas. By reading the oat sensor data, the ood levels at the dams are detected. To locate a persons position, the GPS coordinates are coded using the marine codes. Satellite images are used for the terrain view and they are processed to nd the cost of the route, availability, etc. Then, the GPS coordinates are decoded considering all the nodes to be equiprobable and using a suitable routing algorithm, an alert will be sent via sms to evacuate the place to go to the nearest safest spot.
