Abstract [en]

Due to the rapid development in electronics and radio communication systems, modern technologies are implemented to improve the safety and security of workplaces in order to save field service engineers lives and their health. In this thesis, an automated safety suit was implemented with integrated sensors for monitoring the safety of field service engineers. The basic idea of the prototype is to ensure safety for the field service engineers who are working in adverse environmental conditions. This safety suit includes embedded devices which can communicate with mobile devices and by means of that provides aid for the people working in several fields such as confined spaces, high altitudes etc.

In this prototype, a different type of sensors are proposed for monitoring environmental and health conditions like temperature, CO gas levels, relative humidity, body temperature and heartbeat. A mobile application is proposed to monitor and control the automated safety suit, which also identifies the environmental changes and provide prompt alerts to the user. Keeping the usage of automated safety suit in mind, the system is designed in a user friendly manner and all the key elements are considered and implemented accordingly for the requirements of service engineers who are working in confined spaces and hazardous places.
