Topic : ―SIRASTRANA‖-A Smart Helmet for Air Quality and Hazardous Event Detection for the Mining Industry

Authors:Raghavendra Rao B || Karthik NS, NA Poojitha, Divya L, Nandini N

Abstract:A smart helmet has been developed that is able to detect hazardous events in the mines industry. In the development of helmet, we have considered the three main types of hazard such as air quality, helmet removal, and collision (miners are struck by an object). The first is the concentration level of the hazardous gases such as CO, SO2, NO2, and particulate matter. The second hazardous event was classified as a miner removing the mining helmet off their head. An IR sensor was developed unsuccessfully but an off-the-shelf IR sensor was then used to successfully determine when the helmet is on the miner’s head. The third hazardous event is defined as an event where miners are struck by an object against the head with a force exceeding a value of 1000 on the HIC (Head Injury Criteria). An accelerometer was used to measure the acceleration of the head and the HIC was calculated in software. This paper presents the undertaken design detailing solutions to issues raised in previous research. Main objective to give the correct and clean breathing averment at any hazardous or toxic environment.
