GSM 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 the 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 an 8-bit microcontroller, several types 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 projects for final year electronics students. These GSM projects are more helpful for ECE and EEE students in completing their engineering successfully.

GSM Projects for Engineering Students

The list of GSM projects for engineering students includes the following.

GSM Modem

Railway Track Security System

This project is designed to find the breakages or cracks on tracks in the 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 convey it through the required communication protocol.

Flood Intimation over GSM Network

This flood intimation project is designed to detect a 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.

GSM based 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. The message sent by the user is received by the control unit. A GSM modem is interfaced with the control unit to receive messages from the users.

GSM based Vehicle Location Identifier

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.

PCBWay

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 electrical appliances by sending an SMS to the control unit.

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.

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 a microcontroller and a GSM modem along with sensors and other peripherals.

This door lock system project is implemented with GSM technology. This system is used to provide the security to home in order to control the doors so that home security can be enhanced. This proposed system allows the user to control the door by sending an SMS to the owner using a GSM modem. If an unauthorized person tries to unlock the door then GSM sends an SMS to alert the owner. This project is used for security purposes.

GSM Based Motor Control

This project is useful where the motor & wireless pump control is required. This project gives many benefits to agriculture people, farmers & industries. This project uses GSM technology to control the motor using the user’s mobile phone.

This system allows the operator to manage the motor through SMS & also make it possible to protect the motor from over-current, single phasing & dry-running. By using this project, the user can operate the motor from anywhere through SMS. The operation of this project is reliable, less maintenance, and low cost.

GPS & GSM based Vehicle Tracking System

This project is used to track the vehicle using GPS & GSM. Please refer to this link to know more about GSM based vehicle location identifier project: Vehicle Theft Control System by using GSM and GPS Systems

GSM based Home Automation using Arduino

This project is used to implement a home automation system using GSM and an Arduino. In this proposed system, Arduino plays a key role in controlling the entire process. This project uses wireless communication like GSM to send commands to control the home appliances. Once the Arduino receives these commands then it sends signals to relays to operate (turn ON/OFF) the home appliances with the help of a relay driver.

GSM based Patient Monitoring System

This project is used to design a monitoring system for patients using GSM. Please refer to this link to know more about GSM based Patient Monitoring System Project

GSM Based Wireless Electronic Notice Board

Please refer to this link to know more about this project: Wireless Electronic Notice Board using GSM

Railway Track Security System

This project is used to design a security system using GSM for railway track. Day by day railway accidents is occurring due to many reasons like fire in trains, derailments than a crash. These derailments are mainly occurred because of the cracks in the railway tracks.

To overcome this, the track detection system is necessary. In this proposed system, the crack detection system is designed for railway tracks using GSM technology. By using this project, railway accidents can be avoided. In this system, GSM is used to convey the message regarding the crack detection on tracks through an SMS to the railway authorities.

GSM based Alert System

This project designs a system for detecting burglary & reporting. In this project, sensors are connected to doors to detect person entry. The signals which are received by the sensor were transmitted to PDU (Presence Detection Unit) through RF communication. The PDU system includes a sensor and a camera. This sensor detects the motion of the intruder whereas the camera is used to capture the images of him.

Once a burglar was detected through the PDU, then an SMS can be sent to the mobile unit of the operator & the images which are captured will be sent to a software application of the mobile. By using this project, the presence of a burglar can be detected and reported to the concerned person in a test area accurately.

GSM based LED Control using Arduino

This project is used to control the LEDs with Arduino depending on the received messages through the GSM module. This proposed system uses a GSM module to send an SMS to ARDUINO to operate the LED-based on the SMS received. By replacing home appliances instead of LEDs, we can control the home appliances with the help of a relay which is connected to Arduino.

Wireless Heart Attack Detector using GSM

This project develops a system to reduce the rate of death because of the heart attack. In this project, a heart rate sensor, GPS, and GSM are used to detect the heart rate & send the information. The detection of the heart rate of the user can be detected through the heart rate sensor continuously.

This system includes a fixed threshold value, once the threshold value goes above or below then the microcontroller will turn ON the GPS & GSM to send the information using the user’s location to the nearby health sector or to the family members. The main intension of this project is to develop a system to help people from heart attack diseases.
