Abstract: The Gas leakage is one of the big problems with industrial sector, residential milieu and gas functioning vehicles like CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) buses, cars etc. One of the contraceptive methods to stop accidents associated with the gas leakage is to install a gas leakage detection device at vulnerable places. The system detects the leakage of the LPG using a gas sensor and uses the GSM to alert the person about the gas leakage via SMS. When the concentration of LPG in air exceeds a certain level, the sensor senses the gas leakage and the output of the sensor goes LOW. The detection is done by the gas sensor, through the microcontroller the LED and buzzer are turned ON simultaneously. An alert is provided to the user, sending an SMS to the programmed mobile number.
