Abstract

The rapid progress in the field of wireless communication and embedded systems has made wireless sensor networks (WSN) technology. A WSN consists of many cheaper and smaller wireless sensors, which are capable of collecting and processing environmental information, and communicating with neighboring nodes in the wireless medium. In this paper, we propose an architecture for monitoring of fuel level and switching of smart generator using wireless sensor network (WSN) technology. For establishment of WSN technology, ZigBee/IEEE 802.15.4 protocols[1] are used. In the proposed model, whole system is divided in to two units first is communication unit and second is sensor unit. The communication unit consists of mainly one pair of zigbee S2 modules to provide a wireless communication and the sensor unit consists of mainly ATMEGA328P microcontroller, ultrasonic sensor, LCD display and a buzzer. The proposed model based on WSN technology has many of the advantages such as Low-power consumption, Huge network capacity, high reliability, low cost etc. [2]-[7].
