Human life protection in trenches using gas detection system.
Human beings have numerous sensors to sense the state of the environment and actuators to perform different actions. One such vital sensor is the Nostril. The nostrils are essential for life. Hence, coming in contact with hazardous gases causes danger to human life. In many developing countries, lthe sewers are still cleaned by unskilled labourers. Situations may arise where hazardous gas is emitted via sewage and can potentially endanger life. Furthermore, in coal mining, there is a possibility of hitting a source of natural gas which cannot be determined unless or until a sensor is utilized. To prevent such hazardous situations, this new gas detection system detects those types of gases, analyzes them for us and provides essential details about it. Our system is designed to track the presence of hazardous gases, identify the safety limit and calculate the level in that situation, thereby preventing hazards to human life. It allows detection of carbon monoxide and methane at the given time, along with their accurate concentration values in ppm. The basic idea of this system is to calculate a safe limit point 'x', when the system detects a value 'y' (near to and less than 'x') and then alert the environment. If the value exceeds 'x' ,then system should provide a higher level threat detection alert so that the persons immediately evacuate that area, thereby preventing any possible dangers. The alert messages are broadcasted using GSM technology and hence, can be used to notify other rescue workers about the potential hazard the worker is facing at the moment.Author(s): Ambeth kumar devadoss
