Abstract

This review paper titled "Integration of GPS and GSM for Human Detection and Rescue in Water-Body, using an Intimation-Device and Robotic-Boat to provide Emergency Services to End-user" presents a way to develop and fabricate an automated system to rescue life. The overall system consists of an automated rescue boat and an Intimation-Device to be worn over the wrist which is embedded with all the features. This Intimation-Device works such that when a person gets into any water body, and is on the verge of getting drowned, then he can press the rescue button that would automatically inflate a rescue tube from the device, so that the person can cling on to it and wait for assistance. The exact current GPS location of the person will be continuously transmitted via GSM Module to the Control-Centre so that the rescue unit tracks the GPS location and reaches the point. In emergencies such as vehicular breakdown, accidents etc, the victim can intimate the Control-Centre and immediate help can be delivered. A camera and microphone is embedded into the Intimation-Device that will transmit the video and audio footage of the victim's condition and surrounding environment that could be viewed from the Control-Centre, which would serve to be of great help during disasters. This project is designed to undertake rescue operations in water; so as to catalyse the operation a robotic boat is designed to accomplish and provide immediate rescue solutions to the victim. The G PS location of the victim is continuously fed to the Robotic- Boat via Control-Centre and the Robotic-Boat is lead through a definite path to the prescribed GPS location of the victim. This Robotic-Boat consists of an artificial Hydraulic-Arm that can be controlled via Control-Centre with the help of visual feedback provided by the cameras fitted over the boat and the Robotic- Arm. This arm would serve as a rescue device, which would cling round the person and put him on-board. This is especially helpful in case of natural calamities such as tsunami, floods etc; during which we do not have to risk the life of a rescue personnel.
