Sai Teja, a 22 year old from Hyderabad who didn’t pursue his education after 10th class invented a smart device that stops the vehicle engine if the driver blood alcohol range crosses 30 ml.
This detector can sense whether the driver has consumed alcohol or not and can accordingly restrict the vehicle’s engine. Moreover, it will also send an SMS alert to the configured mobile numbers.
Siripuram Sai Teja, who daily read the news about drunk driving in Hyderabad, especially over weekends and the accidents caused by them made him to come up with a solution, a smart device that he made within 15 days just by spending Rs. 2,500. He learn coding to build it from Google and Youtube and purchased a micro controller over internet.
Speaking with ANI Teja said, “I stopped studying after 10th class due to some reasons, but was interested in electrons and use to gain knowledge from the internet. Learnt to code from internet and invented a new alcohol detector which restricts the vehicle engine to start if the driver has consumed more than 30 per cent of alcohol.”
However, he does not intend to sell the product. “I want to donate the product to society and want to dedicate the good will earned through it to make my mother happy. She is a heart patient and I want to see her in cheerful mood always,” he said.
Taking note of his innovation, TRS working president K. Taraka Rama Rao extended his support to Sai Teja through Telanagana State Innovation Cell (TSIC) and tweeted about it on twitter recently.
