Aarya ITES for Reserve Bank of India

Challenge

Smaller Denomination Currency management plus handling the visitors in the bank premises

Introduction

Some years back RBI faced a serious problem of managing smaller denominations currency as there were lot of incidents wherein large amounts like Rs. 1000 to Rs. 10000 were exchanged for a mere Rs. 10 or Rs. 20. Also there was no record about who exchanged the currency and for how many number of times in a particular span of time. Another major issue that was there was to handle all the visitors in the bank. There was constant chaos that the bankers faced.

Objective

To create an efficient currency management system along with visitor management.

The acute problem here is about currency management. If the total currency collection vs. given and to whom, is not known then any further interpretation was not possible. This would lead to a dead point.  TO curb this issue the team of experts at Aarya ITES devised a plan which helped RBI to calculate beforehand what is the stock of the currency and it would be given to whom.

The first step to this system was to centralise the visitors for currency exchange and the staff associated with is at one point and hence bifurcating the visitors for other banking services to currency exchange. A biometric devise was installed as the first point of the cycle, where in a visitor would register him (with fingerprints and photographs) and notify how much currency he would want in exchange. Once that is noted, according to the availability to the currency, a token was registered specifying the time and date on which the visitor would be receiving the currency. This system gave 2 advantages

1. Reduce the time any visitor would spend
2. The bank would always be aware of the currency stock real time and could maintain a steady average stock throughout a time span.

Once the visitor gains the currency he demanded for, he was further notified that he would not be able to log in for currency exchange for this time span and he would be issued any currency if required after a certain period of time. With this tweak in the system we were able to cub the black head deeds which were followed by enthusiasts and used as a business opportunity.

This is how the entire cycle was managed and the result of which was, an absolute data about the stock and who has booked and received the currency exchange. The data storage capacity of this system is 10 lac fingerprints.

With this system the involvement of manpower was also reduced. Because the entire process was system oriented, the chances of human error were aloof.

Looking at the success of the system at one of the branch RBI then went ahead to implement the same system in 20 other branches.

Aarya ITES for Ambuja Cement

Challenge

Automation and Control of Vehicle movement (cement loading) at the Ambuja Cement Plant.

Introduction

At the plant site, cement was loaded through a loading spout directly into the loading vehicles. But there was a lot of chaos and uncertainty of the position of the vehicle leading to wastage of cement. As there was no queue management systems drivers would remain in the queue for long time, which lead to waste of time and energy to organise the queue. Considering all these hassles Aarya ITES devised a plan which not only saved time and reduced wastage but also reduced the physical inputs of labour into the process.

Objective

To devise and automate the process of cement filling and control the vehicle movement at the Plant.

Along with queue disorderliness the major concern here was to handle many drivers of the vehicle at bay to be filled with cement. Also drivers would leave their vehickes to have snacks or have a break to lead to more chaotic situation, which in turn required more people to handle the entire process. Aarya after its site analysis process devised a plan to reduce the unwanted chaos and wastage.

The control system consists of a Loop Detector (LD1) at the entry which opens the Boom Barrier (BB1) on arrival of a vehicle. Once the vehicle passed the next Loop Detector (LD2), the BB1 is close down. Before allowing the entry of vehicle on the Weighing Bridge (WB), the controller assures that the ‘Loading Spout (Loading Bellow) LS ’ is in UP Condition and the previous vehicle is exited (Vehicle Present on WB Sensor), through the exit BB2 through LD3. The BB2 is activated once the LS is UP (after filling) and the vehicle is fully filled-in (this is detected through a WB sensor). The BB2 closed using LD3. A typical schematic diagram is shown below.

With this system in place any vehicle which was in warded for cement filling, would receive a coupon stating its appointed time so the driver would plan his break accordingly. The second benefit was there was no wastage of cement as the markings were clear and the boom barriers supported entry and exit automatically. This way with its smart solution Aarya is now a preferred by Ambuja Cement.

Aarya ITES for L&T

Challenge

Remote CCTV Surveillance and Monitoring system with Solar Power

Introduction

Near the L&T RVTL toll plaza, there was a road connecting small townships was used to bypass the L&T toll plaza. That road was made for the convenience of fellow residents there but then is now used to bypass the toll. This is leading to reduction of toll income.  To understand the real statistics, L&T would like to monitor the flow of traffic remotely and devise a strategy to curb this loss. With its experienced team Aarya ITES brought a lethal solution for L&T uncertainties.

Objective

To remotely monitor the RJV- Reliance road and bring a solution for the bypassing of L&T RVTL toll plaza

Here considering the monitoring is remotely, the entire system is working on solar power panels. The transmitter system will be installed at two different locations A and B, and the receiver system at the toll plaza. The geographic location of A is latitude 22.200399, corresponding longitude is 70.001548 and height is 40 meters approximately from sea level. Similarly the geographic location of location B is at latitude 22.185174, longitude 69.534002 and height from sea level is approx. 38 meters. But the height of the toll plaza is approximately only 9meters above the sea level which is quite low as compared to both the locations, location A and Location B. So to meet the height difference of all locations poles of 25 meters would be erected at all locations.

The CCTV Cameras installed on both the poles at location A and location B will monitor the corresponding locations and the data will be sent to the toll plaza. A solar panel, battery pack, wireless link and aviation lights will be installed on these poles. The solar panel will generate electricity and cater the required power to the camera through the battery pack. Also necessary power will be provided to the wireless link and the aviation lights through the same.

The captured data from the camera will be sent to the NVR (Network Video Recorder) located at the toll Plaza through the wireless link. The NVR is already installed at the toll plaza and both the cameras will be configured in the existing NVR .The wireless transmitters at location A and location B will transmit the captured data, receiver at the pole on the toll plaza will receive the data and send it to the NVR where the cameras will be configured. The CCTV cameras come with an External Micro SD slot and a 32 GB Micro SD Card to monitor the data in case the wireless link fails.

Aviation lights will be installed at all the three locations to justify the aviation rules.

Aarya ITES for Palitana Derasar

Challenge

Installation of CCTV surveillance system without an electricity infrastructure, because bringing any form of electrical energy was forbidden.

Introduction

Palitana derasar situated in Ahmedabad is a temple situated at a height.  A devotee climbs 3000 steps to the holy place. As a tradition any form of electrical infrastructure is forbidden at this place so the temple faced a lot of theft incidences lately. There was a watch guard but somehow the incidences could not stop due the massiveness of the premises.

Objective

To have a flawless surveillance of the entire premise without use of electrical energy.

As there was no electrical support for the system , we installed a solar panel to generate electricity for 64 cameras across the premises.  The efficiency of solar panel is such that there is backup electricity for 2 full days even if the sun does not shine. Along with the premises surveillance we also implemented a Guard tour system so that there is constant monitoring on the guard and hence reduce the chances of human error.

The entire remote monitoring system was installed at the base camp of the temple which also helped to restrict the excessive public in the premises.

Hence with all the constraints, we at Aarya ITES Pvt. Ltd have successfully run this project to the fullest of satisfaction.
