GSM based Projects for Engineering Students

GSM or Global System for Mobile Communications projects are based on one of the emerging technology of the century. It deals with design of a stand-alone embedded system that can monitor and control several devices remotely irrespective of distance limitations. Generally sending and receiving SMS is the concept followed in embedded domain. The system has two parts, namely; hardware and software. The hardware architecture consists of a stand-alone embedded system using a 8-bit microcontroller, several type of interface and driver circuits. The system software driver is developed using an interactive C programming language.

Here we are providing the list of various GSM based projects for final year electronics students. These are more helpful for ECE and EEE students in completing their engineering successfully.

GSM Based Projects for Engineering Students:

1. Railway Track Security System:

Railway Track Security System
Railway Track Security System

This project is designed to find the breakages or cracks on tracks in electric locomotive system  and alert the railway department. It is the latest technology to avoid railway accidents. Here we use GSM Communication protocols to send the message of breakage detection via SMS. A microcontroller can be used to process this data and conveyit through required communication protocol.

2. Flood Intimation over GSM Network:

This flood intimation project is designed to detect rise in the water level and convey the message to the concerned authorities by using GSM protocols. As the water level rises from a fixed level, (which can be sensed by using any sensor) the microcontroller gets interrupted.

3. GSM based wireless Electronic Notice Board

Wireless Electronic Notice Board
Wireless Electronic Notice Board

The main concept of this project is to develop a digital notice board. A control unit is connected to the notice board. Message sent by the user is received by the control unit. A GSM modem is interfaced to the control unit to receive messages from the users.

4. GSM based Vehicle Location Identifier:

Vehicle Theft Intimation
Vehicle Theft Intimation

Theft intimation of a vehicle can be conveyed to the owner of it via SMS by using GSM communication protocols. A control unit comprising of a microcontroller and GSM modem is connected to the vehicle. Once the theft takes place, an interrupt is given to the controller which in turn generates an alert message and transmits it to the owner of the vehicle via GSM modem.


5. Energy Meter Reading with Load Control using GSM:

This project is designed to transmit energy meter readings to the concerned authority via SMS. Additionally, we can also control the electrical appliances by sending an SMS to the control unit.

6. GSM based integrated Energy management system

This project is designed to control electrical appliances by using GSM communication protocols. It can be used to control home appliances or even industrial loads also. The concept behind the project is when an SMS is sent to the GSM modem by the user, the modem conveys this message to the microcontroller through RS232 communication.

7. Energy Meter status transmission using GSM:

This project is developed to convey the status of the energy meter to the concerned authority using GSM communication protocols. The system is designed to send an SMS to the department in the event of the energy meter being tampered. The control unit comprises of a microcontroller and a GSM modem along with sensors and other peripherals.

8. GSM based Railway Gate crossing control:

Railway level crossing gate can be controlled by the station master or the engine driver by using GSM communication. The control unit comprises of a microcontroller and a GSM modem along with various peripherals and is connected to a DC motor (used for demonstration purpose).

9. GSM Based Energy Meter Billing

This involves reading electrical energy consumed in units and calculating the bill by the electrical department and sending the bill by sms to the user.

10. Theft Intimation of the Vehicle Over SMS to Owner Who Can Stop the Engine Remotely:

This involves remote controlling of the vehicle by its owner at the time of situations like unauthorized access of the vehicle, by using wireless technology to disable the vehicle engine.

11. RFID Based Device Control and Authentication:

It involves checking the authentication of any person to enter the secured area in places like any company or industry.
