Our solution's stage of development:Early
We have developed software & hardware that will help governments and urbanite: • Easily monitor irrigation, crop information and improve efficiency & productive capacity. • Water resource management through monitoring water level, quality and supplying water to areas where required. • Asset Management & Tracking
There are over 7 billion people in this world. And with the increase in population the human race is facing a number of daunting challenges in their day to day life. It is predicted that by 2050 about 64% of the developing world and 86% of the developed world will be urbanized. From micro to macro level some of the biggest challenges include:
- Global Warming
- Safety & Security
- Water scarcity
Daria Tech is working with cutting edge wireless communication technologies to develop the next generation of communication platforms in the realm of IoT. Daira’s IoT Platform is an enterprise level solution for onboarding / managing IoT hardware and campaigns across different partners and domains.
It allows Daira to rapidly develop & onboard new hardware into the platform which can then be used to solve problems across different use cases such as:
- Water Resource Management
- Agricultural Management
- Nextgen Queue Management
- Wearable E-Commerce
- Safety & Tracking of Assets & Persons
- Event & Concert Management
- Nextgen Workforce Management
- Nextgen Ticketing
Governments can digitize agriculture industry through smart management, making it more efficient and increase productive capacity. The water sensors will share the data with local authorities, allowing them to monitor water level, quality and supplying water to areas where required.
We feel that our diversified solution can solve problems in the most simplified way. Ranging from one to millions of IoT devices our platform is built to solve the most complex problems.
Due to rapid urbanization:
- By 2050 about 64% of the developing world and 86% of the developed world will be urbanized. With 2.4 billion more people by 2050, the amount of food produced will have to increase by 70%. The growing population of urban regions will strain basic sanitation systems and health care, and potentially cause a humanitarian and environmental disaster.
- 67% of the World's fresh water is used for agriculture. As populations increase demand for water will increase. Availability per person will be at least one third lower than it is now.
Why our solution will solve the problem:
Cities will be major beneficiaries from growth in the IoT market. The IoT growth is being fueled by a mix of technological, political and social factors which are driving more organizations to adopt IoT-enabled solutions.
Governments are spending billions of dollars on smart cities initiatives. For cities, it’s about taking data and weaving it together for actionable insight that can add value.
Using our solution cities can improve agricultural and water industry, that can translate to more jobs, better economic development and improved sustainability as well.
Our target outcomes:
Our solution is composed of following parts:
- IoT platform (web based)
- Mobile App
- Hardware: Sensors, GPS / GSM devices, bluetooth beacons, mobile phones, e-gates, bluetooth bands and NFC stickers.
We will deploy the hardware in water resources, crops and other required regions.
After deployment governments as well as farmers can use our IoT platform and mobile app for:
- Monitoring water level, quality and supplying water to areas where required.
- Enhancing crop production and quality through recommendations based on the data received from sensors.
How we will measure our progress:
The populations we will benefit initially:
The regions we will benefit initially:
The technologies we employ:
Why our solution is unique:
Daira Tech aims to provide solutions that will empower individuals and governments to solve complex problems. With Patent Pending technologies, Daira Tech hopes to revolutionize crowd management, water resource management and agricultural management.
Along with hardware, Daira Tech is acutely focused on developing a proprietary, hardware agnostic, cloud based platform for IoT devices.
Our problem driven approach allows us to solve complex problems across different use cases.
Why our solution is human-centered:
We have personally interviewed more than 500 people working in food and agriculture industry. Based on the problems that they face we have come up with a solution that is simplified and diverse to solve their problems. We have used different design thinking techniques while building our solution.
How people will access our solution:
We will deploy the sensors in water resources, crops and other required things.
After deployment governments as well as farmers can use our platform and mobile app for actionable insights.
We understand that the target market is very diverse and for that we are offering the most simplified way based on IoT which end-user can easily operate with few clicks of a button and receive actionable insights.
Technology-Readiness Level:6-8 (Demonstration)
How we will sustain our team financially:
Currently we have received pre-seed funding of over $100,000 USD from two investors. In next 3 months we are looking to raise seed investment from like-minded investors to help us scale in different industries.
The factors limiting our success:
Lack of B2G partnerships is one of the biggest limiting factor in scaling. Apart from that we feel confident to succeed in B2B.
How long we have been working on our solution:3 years
How long it will take to develop a pilot:1-3 months
How long it will take to scale beyond our pilot:6-12 months
Our expected annual budget:
How much of our budget we've secured to date:
We're looking for partners in these fields:
Why we're applying to Solve:
I have great passion for solving real world problems. I started off my journey with Hajj Guider (www.hajjguider.com) a wearable technology product that makes Hajj & Umrah pilgrimage safer and simpler.
I always want to design technology which is human-centered and quantifying the problems of real world in a way that has never been done before. To me Solve is the best platform where I can collaborate with like-minded people and come up with solutions for the biggest challenges we as humanity are facing.
Our current partners:
I have two co-founders Arif Qadir and Moeez Qadri.
We have two investors, one from UAE and another from Jordan.
