Monitoring and Alarm System for Coal Mine Safety Based on Wireless Sensor Network


Article Preview

In order to guarantee the safety of the coal production and effectiveness better, this paper designs a monitoring system for coal mine safety based on wireless sensor networks, and gives the hardware design of sensor nodes and the flowchart of software. For the purpose of meeting requirements of monitoring signals, CC2430 is chosen as the microprocessor. The sensor nodes can collect and transport the environment parameters of the mine including temperature, humidity and gas concentrate and so on, and send the data through the GPRS module to the remote monitoring center. The system can improve the level of monitoring production safety and reduce accident in the coal mine.
