The main objective of this project is to give an alert signal to the people who are living nearby to the river bank during dam water releasing. At present the alert signal given from the dam is not reachable to the people living in the nearby villages. Hence they use the river without knowing about dam water releasing and lose their life. This project can be used to prevent human life by giving an alert signal about dam water releasing to panchayat office of each village nearby river bank regions. This project consists of XBee RF (Radio Frequency) transmitter and receiver modules (XBee series 2 modules will be used in this project which can communicate up to 120m. For real time implementation, XTend RF module can be used which can communicate up to 40miles), a microcontroller and buzzer. When the stop gate of the dam is opened, a signal will be transferred from the XBee RF transmitter. When the signal is received at the XBee RF receiver of the village, the microcontroller will turn on an alarm immediately in order to alert the people of the village. Multiple RF XBee receivers can be used to alert the people of different villages at the same time. This project can be used to avoid human loss completely. This project can also be used for mine monitoring.
