Chennimalai farmers have turned cell phones in to remote control. They are using it as a remote to operate the pump sets, installed in their field, from afar. The prototype kit was introduced by three engineers Rajakumaran, Kumar and Nallasivam some months ago and is called real mobile start controller.
Rajakumaran said, “It can be attached to the pump set’s starter and then the farmer can operate the pump set from his home itself by giving a missed call. As the kit is programmed to function only from one phone number, no other person will be able to operate it. The kit will inform the farmer, through SMS, about water position in the well, power cut, and other defects, if any” .
“There is no need to visit the farm at night. A farmer can operate the pump set out of station for specific hours and stop it through the cell phone. The cost of the kit is affordable,” he added.
The workers find it very difficult to visit the area during night to operate the motors. Due to frequent power cuts the water supply system is disrupted. The real mobile start controller offers a solution to these problems, said Chennimalai town panchayat president A. Gopalakrishnan
