Bhubaneswar, May 17 (PTI) Even when you are away from home, this gadget can send an SMS warning you about a gas leak in your kitchen. A group of young technologists and engineers here have developed a cooking gas alarm and SMS system to prevent fire mishaps due to gas leakage either from stove or rubber pipe. The user gets a text message on his or her mobile phone about the impending danger in case of a gas leak with the help of the gadget manufactured by city-based company RoboticWares. "We are trying to make the common man''s life more simple and secure. We are targeting military, medical, consumer and industrial sectors as a potential market for robots," says CEO of RoboticWares Kushal Nahata. He said kitchen fires can be prevented with the help of remote-controlled gadgets. Also in the company''s kitty of innovative products is a remote video surveillance system called ''Far Eye'' which provides a complete software solution for office or home security, he said. "Far eye monitors home or office round-the-clock, captures motion events using webcam and saves them into compressed video clips. It enables one to conduct remote video surveillance from anywhere in the world," Chief Technology Officer of RoboticWares Gaurav Srivastav said. The company has also developed a University Automation System known as Unimator, which could be used by around 10,000 students enabling video lecturing, assignment system and storing complete information about a college on web. Some leading educational institutions here, like the HDF School of Management and Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology, have been using it, Srivastav said.
