Sending SMS from No Signal Area – Mini Project

Hi friends, in previous article we have seen Zigbee and GPS project which tracks a vehicle. Today we will build another innovative electronic project which will send a SMS from No Signal Area. There are many locations where we get poor range or completely no range. So using this embedded system we can send a SMS from such locations. The only condition we need here is, we should have a mobile network at the receiving end of Zigbee module.

This is low cost project and highly innovative. You can build such projects for your final year engineering submissions also.

Sending SMS from No Signal Area

Objective:

The main objective of this micocontroller project is to send a SMS from No Signal area which is also known as Black Spot area using Zigbee and GSM module.

Components:

Hardware

  1. 8051 family development board
  2. power Supply
  3. Zigbee modules
  4. GSM modem.
  5. Max232

Software

  1. Embedded ‘C’
  2. RIDE to write code
  3. ISP to burn the chip

Description:

As already stated, this project is useful for creating signal, using GSM module we can send SMS through that signal to destination. In this project we are using two different frequencies. Zigbee has frequency 2.4GHz and GSM has frequency 1800 MHz.

Main circuitry of this project contains two embedded development boards. One contain Zigbee and Keypad and other contain Zigbee and GSM. We need to place first board in No signal (Black spot) area. Other development board which contains Zigbee receiver and GSM module is kept in area where there is mobile network.

When you type a message using keyboard and hit enter from No signal area, Zigbee transmitter will send a signal with message to the receiver end. Receiver end of Zigbee also has GSM module which will send that SMS to destination mobile.

Vehicle Tracking Using Microcontroller & GPS Module

Hi friends, In this project we are going to make a Vehicle tracking system using 8051 microcontroller and GPS module. You can use this project for you final year submissions which cost you around 2500Rs. This is quite interesting and useful project in our day to day life.

We can easily tack lost vehicle using this Vehicle tracking GPS module. In this project we are using 8051 microcontroller, GPS module to track the vehicle location. This system will send a location of vehicle in the form of longitude and latitude values. If you enhance this project you can also easily track the position of vehicle in the graphical presentation on your PC.

Vehicle Tracking Using Microcontroller and GPS Module

Objective:

The main objective behind developing this project is to track the vehicle position using microntroller GPS module & Zigbee module along with software to see the track of vehicle on PC.

Description:

In this project we using AVL technology. AVL stands for Automatic Vehicle Location. AVL is an advanced method to track and monitor any vehicle which is connected with Vehicle tracking circuit.AVL is a combination of GPS (Global Positioning System) and GIS (Geographic Information SYstem). All data transmission in this project depends on GPS satellite and receiver on the board and Zigbee.

There are planty of tutorials availbel in Internet on how to connect Zigbee with your GPS module. Once you integrate Zigbee and GPS connect your circuit with Microcontroller. You can refer this article on how to connect GPS with 8051 microcontroller.

Software:

For building this Vehicle tracking system you will need Embedded C knowledge, RIDE to write code and ISP to burn the chip.

Hardware:

  • 8051 microcontroller kit
  • power supply
  • Zigbee module
  • GPS module
