Project’s primary objectives are to provide a Mobile Infrastructure for coastal regions of India to enable Offshore Communications and to solve the technology challenges faced by the fishermen community in India today, specifically in providing communications and connectivity while they are out at sea. The validation goal is to realize low cost hybrid terrestrial and marine based environment solution in a “phased manner”.
Based on the aforementioned information, the livelihood of millions of fishermen, depends on availability of reliable and on low cost technology solutions. However, in order to realise such solutions there are considerable challenges. These poor fishermen, who have traditionally over generations upon generations carried out deep-sea fishing, are finding it increasingly difficult to do so. With their livelihood challenged, and with a low literacy rate, this community faces a serious and immediate challenge. The Amrita-IIST-IIITM-K pyramid, will work with the local community, primarily in order to prevent these fishermen from taking extreme measures and following the fatal path taken by the poor uneducated farmers in Maharashtra which resulted in mass scale suicides among farmers from Maharashtra’s Vidharba district.
