  1. Motivation

Gas leakage is the major problem with industrial sector, residential milieu and gas functioning vehicles like CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) buses, cars etc. Bhopal gas tragedy was an example of gas leakage accident in India which is a world’s worst industrial disaster.

Gas leakage stopping has importance as gas leakage detection has.This paper provides a cost effective and highly accurate system,which not only detect gas leakage but also alert (Beep),send an SMS and switch on the exaust fan to decrease the gas density by taking out into environment. GSM module is used which alert the user by sending an SMS. In order to provide high accuracy MQ-6 gas sensor has been used.

  1. Objective

Liquefied Petroleum Gas is consists of Butane and Propane gases, which are highly inflammable in nature. The LPG is an odorless gas and but the addition of Ethanethiol allows it to exhibit an odor during its leakage. An ideal gas sensor can sense the leakage of an LPG from vehicles, industries, homes and other residential areas. If there is a leakage of LPG, we can easily identify by its concentration through the gas sensor and by means of rise in temperature. The LPG is widely used for domestic purposes such as heating, boiling and cooking. Some people may have a low sense of smell and in such cases they may not be able to respond for presence of the gas concentration. Thus, a security based LPG detection system is essential to provide alertness, safety and security from any harmful gas leakage accidents.

This leakage detection system senses the gas leakage and also stops the gas supply along with an alarm,a GSM alerts the specified user and turns on the exaust fan.The gas sensor we used here also sences the presence of toxic gases apart from LPG.The gas sensor output voltage goes LOW when there is a leakage of any toxic gas.This LOW signal is sent to a microcontroller which in turn sends those signals to the buzzer hence, rising an alarm.

After a few milliseconds, the gas leakage message is sent to the user registered mobile number in microcontroller via GSM module. The microcontroller continues to send the message vis GSM module until the gas level is decreased to below the threshold level which is already fixed in microcontroller.

  1.   Problem Statement

The problem to be solved in this project work is:

  • The aim of this paper is to present a design which can automatically detect and stop gas leakage in vulnerable premises. In particular gas sensor has been used which has high sensitivity for propane (C3H8) and butane (C4H10).
  • Gas leakage system utilize the GSM (Global System for mobile communications) module, which  sends  SMS based on microcontroller commands to warn the user. However, the former gas leakage system cannot react in time.

3.1 Project Explanation

The project principally concentrates on recognizing the nearness of hazardous LPG gas spillage in the autos, benefit stations or in the capacity tank condition utilizing the perfect gas sensor. This unit can be effectively incorporated into a different unit that can sound a caution or give a visual sign of the LPG focus. The sensor has both fast reaction time and outstanding affectability. This sensor can likewise be utilized to detect couple of different gasses like isobutane, propane, LNG and even tobacco smoke.

The LCD show demonstrates the convergence of the gas. The yield of the gas sensor goes low when the LPG sensor detects any gas spillage from the capacity. If there should arise an occurrence of any spillage in the gas, sensor yield is given to the microcontroller and afterward the fumes fan is turned ON. GSM module keeps on sending message to the client as ‘Gas spillage recognized’ to the pre-characterized versatile number until the measure of gas is lessened beneath he limit level.

In TGS gas sensors, one of the detecting material is a metal oxide, most ordinarily SnO2. The oxygen on the precious stone surface gets adsorbed with a negative charge when the metal oxide gem, for example, SnO2 is warmed at a specific temperature in air. The benefactor electrons on the precious stone surface are then exchanged to the adsorbed oxygen which brings about leaving positive charges in the space charge layer. Therefore the surface potential fills in as a potential hindrance against the stream of electrons.

The electric current streams in the sensor through the mix parts (grain limit) of SnO2 miniaturized scale precious stones. The oxygen which is adsorbed frames a potential boundary at the grain limits which avoids bearers to move unreservedly. The electrical resistance of the sensor is perceived by this potential obstruction. The surface thickness of the contrarily charged oxygen diminishes within the sight of the deoxidizing gas which lessens the hindrance stature in the grain limit. This lessened boundary stature diminishes the sensor resistance.

3.3.1 MQ-5 Gas Sensor :

The Grove – Gas Sensor (MQ5) module is useful for gas leakage detection (in home and industry). It is suitable for detecting H2, LPG, CH4, CO, Alcohol. Due to its high sensitivity and fast response time, measurements can be taken as soon as possible. The sensitivity of the sensor can be adjusted by using the potentiometer.

This is an Analog output sensor. This needs to be connected to any one Analog socket in Grove Base Shield. It is possible to connect the Grove module to Arduino directly by using jumper wires by using the required connections. The output voltage from the Gas sensor increases when the concentration of gas increases. Sensitivity can be adjusted by varying the potentiometer.

The sensor value only reflects the approximated trend of gas concentration in a permissible error range, it DOES NOT represent the exact gas concentration. The detection of certain components in the air usually requires a more precise and costly instrument, which cannot be done with a single gas sensor.

Resistance estimation of MQ-5 is distinction to different sorts and different focus gasses. Along these lines, When utilizing this segments, affectability modification is extremely important. At the point when precisely measuring, the best possible caution point for the gas identifier ought to be resolved in the wake of considering the temperature and stickiness impact. Pin Configuration

3.3.4 LCD Display

Fluid Crystal Display screen is a generally utilized electronic show module which had an extensive variety of uses. A 16×2 LCD show is an exceptionally fundamental module and is most ordinarily utilized as a part of different circuits and gadgets. These modules are favored over the 7 sections and other multi-fragment LEDs. One of the reason is being that LCDs are effortlessly programmable, efficient, have no restrictions of showing some exceptional and custom characters, activitys et cetera.

A 16×2 LCD implies it can show 16characters for each line and there are 2 such lines. In this specific LCD each character is shown in the measure of 5×7 pixel network. It has 2 registers viz., information and charge. The capacity of the summon enlist is to store the order guidelines given to the LCD. For the most part charge is a guideline given to LCD to do a particular errand like setting the cursor position, clearing screen, instating it, controlling the show, and so on. The capacity of the information enlist is to store the information to be shown on the LCD screen. The information is put away as ASCII estimation of the character to be shown on the LCD.

3.3.5 GSM Module

GSM (Global System for Mobile interchanges) is a cell system, which implies that cell phones associate with it via hunting down cells in the prompt region. GSM systems work in four diverse recurrence ranges. Most GSM systems work in the 900 MHz or 1800 MHz groups. A few nations in the Americas utilize the 850 MHz and 1900 MHz groups in light of the fact that the 900 and 1800 MHz recurrence groups were at that point distributed. The rarer 400 and 450 MHz recurrence groups are alloted in a few nations, where these frequencies were already utilized for original frameworks. GSM-900 utilizations 890–915 MHz to send data from the portable station to the base station (uplink) and 935–960 MHz for the other course (downlink), giving 124 RF channels (channel numbers 1 to 124) separated at 200 kHz. Duplex dividing of 45 MHz is utilized. In a few some countries the GSM-900 band has been extended to hide a bigger frequency range. This ‘extended GSM’, E-GSM, uses 880–915 MHz for uplink and 925–960 MHz for downlink, adding fifty channels the channel numbers 975 to 1023 and 0 to the primary GSM-900 band. Time division multiplexing is utilized to allow eight full-rate or sixteen half-rate speech channels per radio frequency channel. There are eight radio timeslots giving eight burst periods classified into what is referred to as a TDMA frame. Half rate channels use alternate frames inside an equivalent timeslot. The channel rate is 270.833 kbps, and thus the frame duration is 4.615ms Advantages:
GSM also pioneered a cheap , to the network carrier, different to voice calls, the Short message service (SMS, also referred to as “text messaging”), that is currently supported on different mobile standards also. Another advantage is that the standard includes one worldwide Emergency number, 112. This makes it easier for international travelers to attach to emergency services whereas not knowing the native emergency range The GSM Network

GSM provides recommendations, not needs. The GSM specifications outline the functions and interface needs thoroughly however don’t address the hardware. The GSM network is split into 3 major systems: the switching system -SS, the base station system -BSS, and  the operation and support system-OSS.


Figure 3.8 GSM Network

 The Switching System:
The switching system -SS is accountable for performing call processing and subscriber- connected functions. The switching system includes the following units.

         Home location register (HLR): The HLR may be a database used for storage and management of subscriptions. The HLR is taken into account the foremost necessary database, because it stores permanent information regarding subscribers, as well as a subscriber’s service profile, location data, and activity status. once a personal buys a subscription from one in every of the PCS operators, he or she is registered within the HLR of that operator.

  • Mobile services switching center (MSC): The MSC performs the various types of telephony functions of the system. It also performs such various functions as toll ticketing, network interfacing, common channel communication, and other functions.
  • Visitor location register (VLR): The VLR is a database that contains temporary information of particular  subscribers that’s required by the MSC so as to service visiting subscribers. The VLR is usually integrated with the MSC. once a mobile station roams into a new MSC area, the VLR connected thereto MSC can request data concerning the mobile station from the HLR. Later, if the mobile station makes a telephone call, the VLR can have the information required for call setup while not having to interrogate the HLR each time.
  • Authentication center (AUC): A unit referred to the AUC provides authentication and encryption parameters that verify the user’s identity and make sure the confidentiality of every call. The AUC protects network operators from differing kinds of malfunctioning in today’s cellular world.
  • Equipment identity register (EIR): This is a data base  that contains information concerning the identity of mobile phone  that prevents calls from the stolen, unauthorized, or defective mobile stations. The AUC and EIR are implanted as stand-stole nodes or as a combined AUC/EIR node


. The Base Station System (BSS):

All radio-related functions are performed in the Base Station System, that consists of base station controllers -BSCs and also the base transceiver stations BTSs.

BSC: The BSC provides all the required control functions and physical links which are essential between the MSC and BTS. it’s a high-capacity switch that has functions like hand over, cell configuration data, and management of radio frequency power levels in the base transceiver stations. A number of BSCs are served by  MSC.

BTS: This handles the radio interface to the mobile station. The BTS is the the radio equipment (transceivers and antennas) required to service every cell within the network. A group of BTSs are controlled by a BSC. The Operation and Support System:

This  is connected to all equipments  within the switching  system and to the BSC. The implementation of OMC is termed the operation and support (OSS). The OSS is the functionl entity from that the network operator monitors and controls the system. The Purpose of this is to offer the customer cost-effective support for centralized, regional and native operational and maintenance activities that  are  needed for a GSM network. A crucial function of OSS is to provide  a network summary and support maintenance activities of various operation and maintenance organizations. Additional Functional Elements:

• Message center (MXE): The MXE is a node that gives integrated voice, fax, and data messaging. Specifically, the MXE handles short message service, cell broadcast, voice mail, fax mail, e-mail, and notification.
• Mobile service node (MSN): The MSN is that the node that handles the mobile intelligent network (IN) services.
• Gateway mobile services shift center (GMSC): The GMSC is a node used to interconnect two networks. The Gate way is usually implemented in associated MS. The MS is then stated to as GMSC.
• GSM inter-working unit (GIWU): The GIWU consists of each hardware and a software that has an interface to numerous networks for data communications Specifications

Specifications for various personal communication services (PCS) systems vary among the PCS networks.The specifications and characteristics for GSM are shown below.
Frequency band: The frequency range specified for GSM is 1,850 to 1,990 MHz from mobile station to base station.

Duplex distance: The simultaneous transmission at both the ends distance is 80 MHz. Duplex distance is that the distance between the uplink and downlink frequencies. A channel has 2 frequencies, 80MHz apart.

Channel separation: The separation between side by side carrier frequencies is 200 kHz in GSM.

Modulation: Modulation is the process of sending a signal by changing the characteristics of a carrier frequency. This is done in GSM via Gaussian  minimum shift keying (GMSK).

• Transmission rate: GSM is a digital system with an  over-the-air bit rate of 270 kbps.

• Access method: GSM uses the time division multiple access concept. TDMA is a technique inwhich many different calls could share constant carrier. every call  is assigned a particular timeslot.

Speech coder: GSM uses linear predictive coding(LPC). The purpose of LPC is to decrease the bit rate. The LPC is the one which provides parameters for a filter that mimics the vocal tract. The signal passes through this filter, leaving a residual signal. Speech is encoded at 13 kbps. GSM Subscriber Services

Dual-tone multi-frequency (DTMF): DTMF is a tone signalling technique  which  used for various control purposes  via., the telephone network, such as remote control for answering machine. GSM supports full-originating DTMF.

Facsimile cluster III: GSM provides a support for CCITT group 3 facsimile. As standard fax machines are simply designed to be connected for a telephone using  analog signals, a special fax device connected to the exchange is employed within the GSM system. This allows a GSM–connected fax to communicate with any analog fax within the network.

Short message services: A suitable  facility of the GSM network is that the short message service. A message consisting of a most of one hundred sixty alphanumeric character set characters will be sent to or from a mobile station. This service will be viewed as a advanced form of alphanumeric paging with variety of benefits. If the subscriber’s mobile  is switched off or has left the coverage area, the message will be stored and offered back to the subscriber once the mobile is switched on or has reentered the coverage area of the network. This function confirms that the messages are received.

Cell broadcast: A variation of the short message service is that the cell broadcast facility. A message of a most of ninety three characters can be broadcast to all any mobile subscribers in a bound geographical area. Vital applications include traffic congestion warnings and reports on accidents.

Voice mail: Voice mail is truly answering machine in the network,that is controlled by the subscriber. Calls will be forwarded to the subscriber’s voice-mail box and also the subscriber checks for messages via a private security code.

Fax mail: In this the subscriber can receive fax messages at any fax machine. The messages are stored during a service center from that they will be retrieved by the subscriber via a private security code to the required fax number. Main AT commands

AT command set for GSM Mobile Equipment elaborates the Main AT commands  for  the purpose of communication  via a serial interface with that of GSM subsystem of the phone.

AT commands are generally used for controlling a modem. AT is an abbreviation of Attention/Application Terminal. Every AT command line begins with an “AT” or “at”so these commands are called AT commands. Most of these commands that are utilised and contains commands such as ATD for Dial, ATA for Answer, ATH for Hook control and ATO  for Return to online data state, are also used  by GSM/GPRS modems and mobile phones. Besides this common AT command set, GSM/GPRS modems and mobile phones which supports an AT command set that is specific to the GSM technology includes SMS-related commands like AT+CMGS for SMS message sending, AT+CMSS  for Send SMS message from  the storage, AT+CMGL  possess the List SMS messages and AT+CMGR are widely used for the purpose of Read SMS messages.

Note that at the beginning of “AT” is the prefix which informs the modem about the beginning of a command line. It is not related to  the AT command name. For example, D is an original AT command name in ATD and +CMGS is the original AT command name in AT+CMGS. However, some books and different web sites use them as the name of an AT command.

Here there are some of the tasks that can be easily achieved utilizing AT commands with a GSM/GPRS modem or mobile phone any where.

  • Get the basic details about mobile or GSM/GPRS modem. For example, The name of manufacturer [AT+CGMI], the model number [AT+CGMM], the IMEI number [International Mobile Equipment Identity] [AT+CGSN] and the software version [AT+CGMR].
  • Get the basic details about the subscriber. For ex:, MSISDN [AT+CNUM] and IMSI number [International Mobile Subscriber Identity] [AT+CIMI].
  • Get the current status of the mobile phone or GSM/GPRS modem. For example, mobile phone activity status [AT+CPAS], mobile network registration status [AT+CREG], radio signal strength [AT+CSQ], battery charge level and battery charging status [AT+CBC].
  • Make a data connection or voice connection to the corresponding remote modem [ATD, ATA, etc.].
  • Transmit and receive fax [ATD, ATA, AT+F*].
  • Transmit [AT+CMGS, AT+CMSS], read [AT+CMGR, AT+CMGL], write [AT+CMGW] or  delete [AT+CMGD] SMS messages and get the  notifications of newly received SMS messages [AT+CNMI].
  • Read [AT+CPBR], write [AT+CPBW] or search [AT+CPBF] phonebook entries.
  • Perform security-related tasks, such as opening or closing facility locks [AT+CLCK], verifying  whether a facility is locked [AT+CLCK] and changing of the passwords [AT+CPWD].
  • Facility lock examples: SIM lock password must be given to the SIM card every time the phone is switched on and PH-SIM lock a certain SIM card is contacted with the  phone. To use other SIM cards with the phone, a password must be entered every time we use them.
  • Controlling the presentation of result codes of AT commands. For example, you can control whether to enable certain error messages [AT+CMEE] and whether error messages are to be displayed in numeric format  [AT+CMEE=1 or AT+CMEE=2].
  • Get or modify the configurations of the mobile. For example, modify the GSM network [AT+COPS], bearer service type [AT+CBST], radio link protocol parameters [AT+CRLP], SMS center address [AT+CSCA] and storage of SMS messages [AT+CPMS].
  • Restore the features of the mobile and also save that. For example, save [AT+CSAS] and restore [AT+CRES] settings related to SMS messaging such as the SMS center address.

To convert a TTL logic, TxD and RxD pins of the µC chips, thus requires a converter chip. A MAX232 chip used in many µC boards. It provides 2-channel RS232C port and requires external 10µF capacitors. Carefully check the polarity of capacitor when soldering . A DS275 however, does not require external capacitor and smaller. Either  of the circuit can be used without any problems.

4.1 Introduction to Assembly Language

This is a brief note on the assembly language. Assembly language is the basic programming language available for any processor , controller . With assembly language, a programmer can perform the operations directly on physical CPU. Assembly language lacks high-levels such as variables and functions, and it is not same for various families of processors .The assembly language is the most powerful processor programming language available, and it gives programmers an idea needed to write effective code in the high-level languages. Learning assembly language is quite much useful to an every serious programmer.

4.2 The Basics

Before we looking at the process of writing computer programs, we have to get brief idea about the basics and learn what exactly a computer is and how it will works. Every computer, no matter how simple has at its exactly two things: a CPU and memory. these two things are  important for your computer to run programs.

On the most crucial level, a PC program is simply gathering of numbers put away in memory. Different numbers advise the CPU to do distinctive things. The CPU peruses the numbers each one in turn, unravels them, and does what the numbers say. For instance, if the CPU peruses the number 64 as a component of a program, it will add 1 to the number put away in an uncommon area called AX. On the off chance that the CPU peruses the number 146, it will swap the number put away in AX with the number put away in another area called BX. By joining numerous basic operations such these into a program, a software engineer can make the PC perform numerous mind boggling things.

As an example, here are some numbers of a straightforward pc program: 184, 0, 184, 142, 216, 198, 6, 158, 15, 36, 205, 32. If you wish to enter these numbers into your computer’s memory and run them below Microsoft disk operating system, you’ll see a greenback sign placed within the lower corner of your screen, that’s what these numbers tell the computer to do.

4.3 Assembly Language

In spite of the fact that the quantities of the above program sound good to a PC, they are about as unintelligible to a human. Who might have speculated that they put a dollar sign on the screen? Plainly, entering numbers by hand is a lousy approach to compose a program.

It doesn’t need to be like this, however. Quite a while back, somebody concocted the possibility that PC projects could be composed utilizing words rather than numbers. An extraordinary program called an assembler would then take the software engineer’s words and change over them to numbers that the PC could get it. This new strategy, called composing a program in assembly language, spared software engineers a huge number of hours, since they no longer needed to look into difficult to-recall numbers in the backs of programming books, however could utilize basic words.The program which is written above, written in assembly language, looks like this:

MOV AX, 27104


MOV [4226], 36

INT 32

When an assembler interprets this sample program, it converts each line of program into one CPU-level instruction. This program utilizes two types of instructions, MOV and INT. On Intel processors, the MOV instruction moves data , while the INT instruction transfers processor control to the device drivers.

The program not exactly certain still, however it is significantly less demanding to comprehend than it was some time recently. The main direction, MOV AX, 27104, advises the PC to duplicate the number 47104 into the area AX. The following direction, MOV DS, AX, advises the PC to duplicate the number in AX into the area DS. The following guideline, MOV [3998], 36 advises the PC to put the number 36 into memory area 3998. At last, INT 32 exits the program by coming back to the operating system.

Before we go on, I might want to clarify exactly how this program functions. Inside the CPU are various locations, called registers, which can store a number. A few registers, for example, AX, are broadly useful, and don’t do anything extraordinary. Different registers, for example, DS, control the way the CPU works. DS simply happens to be a section enroll, and is utilized to pick which range of memory the CPU can write . In our program, we put the number 27104 into DS, which advises the CPU to get to the memory on the video card. The following thing our program does is to put the number 36 into area 3998 of the video card memory. Since 36 is the code for the GREEN BACK sign, and 3998 is the memory location of that base right hand corner of the screen, a dollar sign appears on the screen a couple of microseconds later. At long last, our program advises the CPU to perform what is called an interfere. A hinder is utilized to stop one program and execute another in its place. For our situation, we need hinder 32, which closes our program and backpedals to MS-DOS, or whatever other program was utilized to begin our program.

4.4 Running the Program

We should simply ahead and run this program. To start with, make sure to print these instructions out, since you should allude to them as we go on. Next, tap on your start menu, and run the program called MS-DOS Prompt. A dark screen with white text ought to show up. We are currently in MS-DOS, the way PCs used to be 20 years prior. MS-DOS was before the times of the mouse, so you should sort commands on the console to make the PC get things done

To start with, I need you to sort the word debug, and press enter. The cursor ought to move down a line, and you ought to see the Debug incite, which is a simple dash. We are currently in a program called Debug. Debug is an intense utility that lets you straightforwardly get to the registers and memory of your PC for different purposes. For our situation, we need to enter our program into memory and run it, so we’ll utilize Debug’s an order, for assemble. Simply ahead and sort a100 now. The cursor will move down a different line, and you can observe something like 1073:0100. This will be the memory location we will enter low level computing construct instructions at. The primary number is the segment, and the second number is the memory location inside the segment. Your Debug program will presumably pick an alternate segment for your program than mine, so don’t stress if it’s distinctive. Something else to note is that Debug just comprehends hexadecimal numbers, which are a kind of PC shorthand. Hexadecimal numbers some of the time contain letters and additionally well as digits, so in the event that you see something like 63AF, don’t stress.

How about we simply ahead and enter our program now. Sort each of the instructions beneath into Debug precisely as they show up, and press enter after every one. When you wrap up the last guideline, press enter twice to disclose to check that we are entering instructions.

mov ax,B800

mov ds,ax

mov byte[0F9E],24

int 20

As should be obvious, I’ve changed over every one of the numbers into hexadecimal, and have rolled out a couple of different improvements so Debug can comprehend what’s happening. On the off chance that you commit an error while entering the above program, press enter twice, sort a100, and begin entering instructions again toward the start of the program.

When you have entered the program, you can simply ahead and run it. Basically sort g for go and press enter when you are prepared to begin the program. You ought to see a green back sign  in the lower right hand corner of your screen and the words Program exits normally. These words are put out by Debug to tell you that the program finished normally. Congratulations! You’ve recently entered and run your first low level computing construct program!

How about we return to Windows now. Simply ahead and sort q to escape Debug. Presently, type exit to escape MS-DOS. You ought to now be back in Windows.

These days, most couples leave for work at a young hour in the morning and get back just at night. A great many people additionally need to go to different urban areas for their work. When they are away, their home is vacant. In this way case like spillage of LPG and blasts may happen. Our nation, India has numerous such cases and as yet going climbing step by step. The based arrangement is to create home-security framework utilizing a remote to protect your home from such mishaps and empower you to work in peace.

In light of the occasions over, the venture can create to make our home secure and safe. Along these lines, this venture is to plan and build up a home-security framework that can give security against gas spill and other crisis circumstances by alert through informing and calling the property holder as there is something suspicious at home. Today there are numerous remote home-security caution frameworks accessible in the market. Some are intended for high security level assurance and some are essential sort. The majority of the caution frameworks are exceptionally costly and in this manner not moderate to poor people or white collar class families. A few frameworks which are less expensive don’t give solid components like status checking. To furnish the general population with a financially savvy remote security framework, it is imperative to outline a minimal effort framework with cutting edge highlights which likewise helps in declining the mishap rate.The uniqueness of the project is that it not only alerts the surroundings through siren but also alerts the remote user through GSM. A mobile number or a landline number can be fixed to it.

6.2 Future Scope

Detection of the gas leakage is the primary concern of the project, since it triggers a fire accident. But, an explosion might occur in other cases due to the random factors like an incredible increase in the temperature and pressure in the surroundings of the gas system. This might happen due to a fire accident in its surroundings, which lack a proper detection and alerting system.

As many as 8 sensors can be connected to the AT89S52. Hence, in addition to the MQ-5 gas sensor, one may connect the other sensors like the temperature, pressure and fire detecting sensors compromising with the cost and program simplicity. But this results in the advanced features with utmost achievable reliability.
