Abstract :

Flood disaster usually happens due to improper irrigation method in a housing area or the sudden increase of water volume in a river. Flood disaster often causes lost of property, damages and life. Since this disaster is considered dangerous to human life, an efficient countermeasure or alert system must be implemented in order to notify people in the early stage so that safety precautions can be taken to avoid any mishaps. This paper proposes a system that can early warn about the upcoming flash flood for the upstream and downstream areas.The system uses solar cells together with batteries as the main power and can be split into two parts. The first part is the transmitter installed at the upstream and composes of a data logger, with an SMS (Short Message Service) transmitter and a warning siren. The second is the receiver installed at the downstream and composes of an SMS receiver with a warning siren as well. The system can warn the upstream village immediately and then warn the downstream area about 2 hours in advance. System focuses on monitoring water level remotely and utilizes Global System of Mobile Connections (GSM) and Short Message Service (SMS) to convey data from sensors to the respective users through their mobile phone. The hardware of the system includes Micro Controller Unit (MCU) PIC18F452, three (3) liquid sensors, Inverter and Easygate GSM Module. Software used for the system is C compiler thru (AT tention) AT commands. It is hoped that this project would be beneficial to the community and would act as a precautionary measure in case of flood disaster at any flood prone area. By having early detection, users could take swift action such as evacuation so that cases of loss of lives could be minimized.
