Crowdsourced SMS based Street Light Monitoring

At NKDA, System Manager Pritam Thakur demonstrated today how we can use a crowd sourcing mechanism to monitor functioning of street lights of New Town. Reports of street lights not working from any resident would be fed to a computer and the informantrec would be intimated by SMS as soon as it is regitered, and again when the defect is rectified. In case a  specified time limit exceeds, the reasons thereof - e.g. bursting of a cable etc - would also be intimated. I saw a trial demonstration today and it appeared that another fortnight would be required to stabilise and test launch the application. A notable point of the system is that one can give inputs by telephone as well as email.
