A sensible helmet has been developed that is ready to notice of dangerous events in the mines trade. within the development of helmet, we’ve thought of the 3 main varieties of hazard like air quality, helmet removal, associate degreed collision (miners square measure affected by an object). the primary is that the concentration level of the dangerous gases such as CO, SO2, NO2, and material. The second dangerous event was classified as a labourer removing the mining helmet off their head. associate degree IR sensing element was developed unsuccessfully however associate degree off-the shelf IR sensing element was then accustomed with success confirm once the helmet is on the miner’s head. . The third venturesome event is outlined as an incident wherever miners ar stricken by associate object against the top with a force extraordinary a price of a thousand on the HIC (Head Injury Criteria). associate measuring system was accustomed live the acceleration of the top and therefore the HIC was calculated in software package. The layout of the visualization software package was completed, but the implementation was unsuccessful. Tests were with success done to calibrate the measuring system. PCB’s that were designed and created enclosed a break board and a example board. A whole computer code implementation was done supported Contiki OS so as to try and do the management of the activity of sensors and of calculations done with the measured values. This paper presents the undertaken style description solutions to problems raised in previous analysis.
