Abstract

IOT based monitoring system to detect the ECG of soldiers using GPS and GPRS

Technology has derived greater value and integrity since the conception of biometric systems. The idea of enhancing security through biometric authentication is proved greatly successful and gained widespread approval because every human being has a unique signature that cannot be replicated. Fingerprints and retinal scans are commonly used biometric authentication techniques. In recent years, facial recognition is also a preferred method of digital authentication. However, in this paper, a system to recognise clinical electrocardiogram (ECG) as a biometric feature for soldiers to communicate in the designated radio frequency has been proposed. The system proposed is a walkie-talkie that uses a wireless sensor network with IOT based monitoring system to detect the ECG of soldiers. The ECG of human beings like their fingerprints and retina are unique and cannot be misused after the respective person was dead. The main purpose of this Walkie-Talkie is to secure the communication medium used by armed forces during warfare and to alert the troops in case of an emergency. Its operations are based on the soldier’s pulse rate. The Walkie-Talkie also has an inbuilt global positioning system (GPS), to identify the location of the soldier during active battle by using the longitude and latitude values. If the pulse is normal, the connection will be established between the control station and the walkie-talkie. Else, the walkie-talkie will be disconnected within three minutes based on relay settings monitored by the control station. The control station will receive an update message from the soldier’s walkie-talkie every two minutes and an alert will be sent to the head of the battalion in critical situations.
