ABSTRACT

This project is about providing secured transportation for liquid materials. In this project, GPS and GSM are used as a core technology with hardware control by Arduino/Microcontroller. A liquid transportation tank will be equipped with GPS tracking module. GPS will continuously monitor the location of system. As soon as tanker comes in geo-location system will further allow pass to the next step of authentication. System will allow the user to enter the password. After matching it allows to operate the lid lock and dispensary valve box lock. Through text message GSM module will send a message to the owner of tanker containing liquid material as the lock gets open which acts as alert to the owner.

Accelerometer is used for monitoring speed of the vehicle and gives alert to the driver if speed is increased beyond predefined speed limit. GSM module sends the location of tanker , speed and lock status at regular interval and help in monitoring the tanker. GSM module is used to provide authentication of lock in emergency cases. In emergency cases, like failure of vehicle, lock can be opened if owner and client both send the message “EMERGENCY_OPEN”. This project can be used for secured transportation mainly for petroleum products, chemicals products and for milk.

CHAPTER 1

INTRODUCTION

1.1 INTRODUCTION

Presently, the theft of costly and rare materials is very prone to theft and tampering during transportation .Petroleum is one of them. In the present situation, while transporting the oil and petroleum products we haven’t introduced any security system in the vehicle. Hence, it leads the theft or adulteration of product by the unauthorized access of tanker. In india there are such many cases of petroleum product thefts have been reporting. On a normal, everyday on the route of Nepal Oil Corporation to Baitalpur of India about 10,500 litres of petroleum product are theft. This is just one such example of petroleum theft which results in adulteration in petroleum products as well.

To solve such problem, we are introducing an advanced security system in the vehicle which is used for transportation of chemical and petroleum products. In this project arduino mega2560 board is used for processing data. By making use of both GPS and GSM/GPRS technologies it avoids the intermediate access to the petroleum products during transportation. To provide additional security in this project matrix Keypad 4×4 is used. Thus, the human intervention is eliminated while transportation and is capable of being accessed only at the source or the destination. At the source or the destination system allow user to enter valid password and allow accessing the lock. System will alert the owner when lock gets opened. Additionally, accelerometer is used for speed monitoring of vehicle. If driver increase speed than the predefined speed, system will give warning to the driver to reduce the speed of vehicle.

1.2 OBJECTIVE

Our main goal is to provide a secured transportation for liquid materials of valuable products and stop adulteration in product which increases quality of products. Objective is to introduce a system which will reduce the theft of liquid material during transportation by using arduino mega2560 microcontroller board with GPRS/GSM module and GPS module.  System will allow the user to access the lock at predefined geo-location only by entering valid pass-code which will alert the owner.

2.2.3 GPS MODULE

C:UsersMAHEKDesktop7th_sem11-20160811T115401ZTrahes_sem7Untitled.png

Figure 2.2.3(a) GPS Module

Global Positioning System is a receiver unit which process the signals received from minimum four GPS satellites and performs necessary calculations in order to determine it’s current position and for Navigational purpose.

GPS module receives the signal “Almanac” & “Ephemeris” data transmitted from GPS satellites.GPS uses satellite as reference nodes and computes their position with data provided by satellites themselves.Atleast three satellites are needed to determine location of GPS receiver on earth.By using three satellite signals will provide two dimensional determination and by using four or more satellites we can get absolute 3D position.

GPS will collect data from three or more satellites and by using triangulation method in which time and position of satellite are considered and calculations are done,and with respect to it Location of GPS receiver is determined.

Figure 2.2.3(b) Determing Position Using Three Satellite

GPS abbreviated as Global Positioning System. It provides location and time information. The concept of GPS is based on time & known position of certain satellites. The satellites contain stable Atomic clocks which are synchronized with each other and with ground clocks. Any shift from true time maintained on the ground is corrected regularly. Likewise, the satellite locations are determined with great precision. GPS receivers have clocks; and are basically not synchronized with true time, and are less stable. GPS satellites continuously send its current time and position. A GPS receiver monitors multiple satellites and solves equations to determine the precise location of receiver and its deviation from true time. At least, four satellites must be in range of the receiver in order to compute unknown quantities. In our project we are using it to find coordinates of vehicle and for geo fencing application to prevent liquid material from unauthorized access.

2.2.4 ACCELEROMETER SENSOR

Accelerometer sensor electromechanical device which measures acceleration forces like static force, dynamic force such as caused by moving or vibrating accelerometer and constant gravitational force  of pulling at your feet.

when an acceleration is applied to a device the developed force displaces the mass with respect to Newton’s second law(F=m*a).there is a small mass etched in silicon surface in IC suspended by tiny beams .the beams act as spring and fluid act as damper which results in lumped physical system of second order.

An Accelerometer sensor is a device which calculates acceleration. Accelerometer is used to measure vehicle acceleration. It can measure vibration on cars, process & control systems and safety installations. They can also measure machine vibration, inclination and speed with or without the influence of gravity

Figure 2.2.6(b) LCD Connection

A liquid crystal display (LCD) is a flat, thin display device made up of any number of monochrome or color pixels arrayed in front of a light source or reflector. Each pixel consists of a column of liquid crystal molecules suspended between two transparent electrodes, and two polarizing filters, the axes of polarity of which are perpendicular to each other.  Without the liquid crystals between them, light passing through one would be blocked by the other. The liquid crystal twists the polarization of light entering one filter to allow it to pass through the other.

For an 8-bit data bus, the display requires a +5V supply plus 11 I/O lines. For a 4-bit data bus it only requires the supply lines plus seven extra lines. When the LCD display is not enabled, data lines are tri-state and they do not interfere with the operation of the microcontroller.

The LCD also requires 3 control lines from the microcontroller:

  1. Enable (E)

This line allows access to the display through R/W and RS lines. When (E) line is high, the LCD checks the state of the two control lines and responds accordingly. When this line is low, the LCD is disabled and ignores signals from RS and R/W.

  1. Read/Write (R/W)

This line determines the direction of data between the LCD and microcontroller. When it is high, data is read from the LCD. When it is low, data is written to the LCD.

  1. Register select (RS)

With the help of this line, the LCD interprets the type of data on data lines. When it is low, an instruction is being written to the LCD. When it is high, a character is being written to the LCD.

2.2.7 ELECTRIC LOCK

elays2.jpg

Figure 2.2.8 L293D Motor Driver

L293D is a typical Motor driver or Motor Driver IC which allows DC motor to drive on both direction.L293D is a 16-pin IC which can control a set of two DC motors simultaneously in either direction. It means that with single L293D IC you can control two DC motor . Motor is used in lock to move the shaft in and out in this system.

L293D comprises two inbuilt H-bridge driver circuits. In its common mode of operation, two DC motors can be driven at the same time, both in forward and reverse direction. The motor operations of two motors can be controlled by input logic at pins 2 & 7 and 10 & 15. The corresponding motor will stop if input logic is 00 or11. Motor will rotate it in clockwise and anticlockwise directions, if logic 01 and 10 will respectively.

To start operate motor, enable pins 1 and 9 (corresponding to the two motors) must be high for motors. The associated driver gets enabled when an enable input is high. As a result, the outputs become active and work in phase with their inputs. Similarly driver is disabled, when the enable input is low and their outputs are off and in the high-impedance state.

3.2  WORKING

(Normal Routine)

The process starts with the owner sending message which contains the “Location co-ordinates of both the source & destination” to the registered number. Then controller board will process the location co-ordinates obtained through SMS and it will set the Geo-fencing area of both the source & destination location. Now controller will monitor the location through GPS module, and if the vehicle is in Geo-fencing area then only it will allow the user to enter the pass-code. After the pass-code is entered it will check whether the pass-code is matched or not. If the entered pass-code is matched then it will allow the user to access the Lock of container. Now as the lock gets opened by user, it will send the message “Lock opened at co-ordinate” to the owner and client both. Arduino will send the message with location of vehicle, lock status & speed of vehicle on regular 30 min of interval.

(Push Button)

The process starts with the driver of vehicle pressing the “Push Button “in some emergency situations such as accidents. By pressing the push button the normal routine is stopped and the system sends the message “EMERGENCY” along with vehicle’s current location through GSM modem to the owner. Further the owner can take the appropriate actions.

(Speed Monitoring)

Accelerometer will continues gets the speed of vehicles. As soon  as speed of vehicle increase from the predefined speed ,buzzer will start alerting the driver to reduce speed and also display over speeding message on LCD display .If driver don’t reduce with 3 min controller send the message to the owner with speed and location  so that necessary action can be taken.
