Won prize in Project Display at INNO-TECH-2015 celebrated by Pushpa Gujral Science City (PGSC) in collaboration with Punjab Technical University (March 18-20, 2015).
About the project: - LPG gas detection and automatic shutdown of electricity.
Ideal gas sensor is used to detect the presence of a dangerous LPG leak in your car or in a service station, storage tank environment. This unit can be easily incorporated into an alarm unit, to sound an alarm or give a visual indication of the LPG concentration. The sensor has excellent sensitivity combined with a quick response time. The sensor can also sense iso-butane, propane, LNG and cigarette smoke. If the LPG sensor senses any gas leakage from storage the output of this sensor goes low. This low signal is monitored by the microcontroller and it will identify the gas leakage. Now the microcontroller is turn on LED and Buzzer. After few milliseconds delay, it also turn on exhaust fan for throwing gas out.
