Technology never stands still. From the existence of Silicon Valley in the late 60's, technology has developed in rapid phase until now. Among the most radical innovations of all time is the introduction of mobile phones. Mobile phones have also developed from just a communication tool into a miniature PC. Lots of applications have been developed to be used in a mobile phone. However, the most common usage of mobile phones is Short Messaging System (SMS). SMS Flood Alert System is a project developed to exploit SMS services. This project uses a GSM Module to act as a transmitter. GSM Module has been pre programmed using a PIC to alert users of a sudden rise of water at river banks via SMS. This project is also applicable to be used to monitor water dams, septic tanks and other kinds of water container. The inputs of the project are 3 liquid sensors that will give input signal to the PIC and also the warning light at the control box. Upon receiving the signal from the sensors, PIC will convey a signal to GSM Module notifying the incident. GSM Module will then send SMS to user informing the incident so that user can take necessary preventive measures as early as possible. This project is dedicated to help solve issues of late detection of flood at flood prone area. By applying this project into their neighborhood, it is expected to help in faster evacuation during emergency time. This thesis will explain in detail regarding the project of SMS Flood Alert System.
