Abstract: There is high-risk factors involved in industries which use hazardous gases in large quantities for their various processes. People may not identify or monitor the leakage of these gases at a regular basis before it goes out of hand. There is a need for sensors to continuously monitor the leakages and alert the users on the possible hazard. This project gives the solution to reduce the risk factors in isolated areas having large gas installations by detecting and displaying the leakages on a continuous basis. Leakage of gas can occur at multiple points in the same installation. Hence, multiple sensors are interfaced to detect the leakage and transmit the signals to the base station located far away. Using microprocessors, multiple sensor values are received and processed. The processed data is encoded and transmitted to the base (using wired or wireless protocols) where another microprocessor decodes it and shows the respective sensor status. The system also gives an audio and visual warning when leakages are detected and the as the time taken to detect is very low due to high speed processing, the leakage situations are brought under control with minimum or no damage. This project gives an economical and efficient method to reduce leakage risk by using latest IoT technologies and monitoring anywhere in the web.
