This project idea is to provide safety for the mine workers both in underground and opencast mines. Safety can be provided by detecting Marsh gases , temperature and humidity, coal dust detection, locating and tracking of workers in the mine. This helps in savings the workers from mine accidents .
We could also add a tremor-detector to the project, in order to predict the mine-quakes and also measure the same, so that the future mines developed in that area can be built based on those standards.
