Implementation of GSM Communication on Flood Monitoring Systems Based on Multiple Locations Visualization

2019 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
Flooding is one of the national disaster tragedies that currently often occurs in various countries. Therefore the government encourages various government, private and community institutions to develop disaster mitigation systems. Disaster mitigation systems are short-term programs aimed at reducing disaster victims. Therefore, this paper aims to describe the results of research in building flood monitoring information systems by developing flood data visualization systems in many locations.

Flood detection systems are designed using ultrasonic sensors, temperature sensors, rain sensors, Arduino Uno microcontrollers and GSM modules. While the flood monitoring information system server was designed using a GSM modem, web server application, mySQL database, PHP engine and Gammu. The results showed that the flood detection system can send flood data consisting of flood locations, water levels, temperatures and rain conditions to the flood monitoring information system using SMS. SMS data received can already be converted by a flood monitoring information system server to a flood visualization-based interface for many locations in real time.
