In this Project it is proposed to design an embedded system which is used for tracking and positioning of SOLDIER by using IR and Global system for mobile communication (GSM).
In this project AT89S52 microcontroller is used for interfacing to various hardware peripherals. The current design is an embedded application, which will continuously monitor a moving SOLDIER and report the status of the SOLDIER.
For doing so an AT89S52 microcontroller is interfaced to a IR and GSM. A GSM modem is used to send the LOCATION of the SOLDIER from a remote place. The IR indicating the position of the SOLDIER. The design uses RS-232 protocol for serial communication between the GSM modems and the microcontroller.
When the request by user is sent to the number at the modem, the system automatically sends a return reply to that mobile indicating the position of the SOLDIER.
