Abstract: Every year, it is noted that at least 430 people die from accidental Carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is an odourless, colourless and toxic gas formed by the incomplete ignition of fossil fuels. It is also called as “silent killer” as it is difficult to detect by humans without using some detecting technology. When people are exposed to carbon monoxide gas, the carbon monoxide molecules will displace the oxygen in the body and lead to poisoning. Thus, the concentration of CO overtime passes a threat which may even lead to death. To overcome this, a smart device is designed to monitor the carbon monoxide level overtime and sound an alarm before dangerous levels of CO accumulate in an environment. The sensor MQ7 senses CO gas and once it reaches the threshold limit 35ppm(parts per million) as per U.S standards, the control passes to the Arduino indicating the seriousness through the alarm. Once the indication is done the immediate measure is to provide ventilation in the particular area.
