Abstract:

Illicit and spurious alcohol consumption is leading to numerous deaths in rural India. The aim of this paper is to reduce the death due to the consumption of spurious alcohol by reducing the production of spurious alcohol. A Vehicular Ad- Hoc Sensor Network, MovingNet, is used to detect the production of spurious alcohol. Multiple sensors capable to detect the presence of methanol content or diazepam in a wide geographical area, is incorporated on the available public transport system that traverse through the rural areas of India, where high rate of spurious alcohol production is observed. The data received from the wireless sensors will be transmitted using the delay tolerant, public transport vehicular ad-hoc network, and analyzed at the central data management center. The results of the data analysis will provide the details of geographic information, the amount of presence of methanol content or diazepam, and the warning degree. This will be sent to the excise department which will help them to locate the position and stop the production of spurious alcohol. Thus the implementation of MovingNet will reduce the production of spurious alcohol and contributes the reduction in hazards due to the consumption of spurious alcohol. MovingNet is a cost effective solution since it uses a very few sensors and the available public transport system for data collection and transmission.
