The Home Safety Bot was an IEEE Envision Project by a group of 5 of us and 3 senior mentors
The number of deaths and injuries occurring at common households presents an alarming reality which has not been dealt with in all these years.It is with far more regret that we note that these deaths/injuries could have been prevented by appropriate alarms and warning mechanisms. The kitchen is by far the most dangerous room.The number of deaths due to accidental gas explosions reached 3525 in 2014. Another rising problem is one due to house fires which could be caused due to short-circuits, gas leaks, etc.
Our robot intends to help in this regard by raising an alarm when the threshold value obtained by the sensors is exceeded.
We believe further advancements can be made by adding IoT capabilities and adding sensors for other common household hazards.
