Abstract
The design and validation of Intelligent Wireless Sensor based Bomb Detection System (IWSBDS) is described in this paper. The IWSBDS can detect constituents of Improvised Explosive Device (IED), transmit the detected packet via on-line features and systematically evacuate the bearer via a hidden trap sink. The IWSBDS is made up of the data capturing with its transmission unit; the signal processing; and the remote output terminal. Each of the modules are internally wired, while the interconnectivity between the modules was achieved wirelessly via the radio frequency (RF) medium. Hence, sensors’ cluster with wireless transceiver unit (WTU) transmits generated packet to the master linked to the control console with update reports. Federal University of Technology landmass was used as the deployment domain. IWSBDS end product functions efficiently for bomb mixture detection in real transmission time of 25s. LM 324, IC CS209, Atmel 89C52 and GSM module (SIM900) were used as major components.
