Coal Mine Safety Monitoring and Alerting System with Smart Helmet
Department of Instrumentation Engineering, Ramrao Adik Institute of Technology, Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
Traditional monitoring systems in coal mines are difficult to install, hazardous, and difficult to power. Because of the complexity of the mining environment and the wide range of operations performed in coal mines, it is vital to monitor and maintain the parameters in the background t increase the efficiency and safety of mineworkers. As a result, traditional monitoring methods cannot be relied on to ensure coal workers’ safety. This research represents a ZigBee-based wireless monitoring system using a smart helmet. The presented wireless monitoring system is capable of detecting and transmitting critical parameters in coal mines such as methane gas, high temperature, humidity, and fire. In an emergency, this monitoring system transmits distress signals. A buzzer will sound if emergency conditions are detected, and the monitored variables will be displayed on the user interface machine. Moreover, the Parameters are wirelessly transmitted to the control room, allowing people to determine the safety situation of the mine. This model is easily reprogrammable. Experiments have demonstrated the system’s reliability and stability.
Key words: Coal mine Safety / Monitoring system / IoT / ZigBee / Smart helmet
