3. One of our Projects entitled "IOT based Automatic LPG Gas Leakage Detector" has been submitted for Chief Minister's Award for Excellence in E-governance for Students
Abstract of the Project :

A cost-effective, automatic Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) leakage detection and real time gas monitoring system is proposed in this Project. The LPG leakage is detected through the sensor and information is sent to the user by Short Message Service (SMS) and simultaneously alerts the customer using a GSM and IOT module, while activating the alarm and exhaust fan. The additional advantage of the system is that it continuously monitors the level of the LPG present in the cylinder using weight sensor and automatically books the cylinder using a GSM and IOT module.
