  1. 1. Weather & Smartphone SensorsAnil Bahuman, Cofounder & CEOKrithi Ramamritham, Cofounder & Chairmananil,krithi @ agrocom.co.inAgrocom Software TechnologiesPvt. Ltd. (Founded 2006) at IIT Bombay
  2. 2. The Important QuestionHow do we givethe rural populationthe same access toInformation thatyou and I takefor granted? "How to face the challenges in serving under-served segments of the population through science & technology based solutions”
  3. 3. Can Smartphones sense weather data?  Barometric Pressure  Temperature  Humidity  UV, Infrared, PAR, Sunlight Hours  Rain and Wind by hearing  GPSPage 3
  4. 4. It would be possible to identify regions susceptible to crop pest attack  Data at District Level?  Data at Village level?  Granularity of data will be tower-level  As operators make location available, data will be available at cell-phonePage 4 level
  5. 5. Is this problem worth solving? Are applications Ltd to Agriculture?  Weather recorded where it matters most – around people  Very large sample of weather data at very high granularity  Huge economic benefit across several industries – agriculture being only one of them  Improve short term and long term weather forecasting - Save lives and property  Advise user – e.g. how long can I stay outdoors?  Context for several mobile applications – e.g. playPage 5 music for rainy weather
