Objectives: To increase the chances of saving the victims under debris especially those trapped under collapsed building. Methods: Technology used in this project is Internet of Things (IOT); through this technology the information about the victim trapped under debris is collected and stored in internet which is used for future use. A separate website is created to store the information about the workers in and out time and a GPS system is used to identify the victim location Findings: The simulation result explains about the latitude and longitude position of victim under rubble, Employer Id and the status of the victim under rubble. While comparing with the existing system the ARM processor is used where the analog to digital signal conversion is faster while comparing with PIC microcontroller, the information stored about the victim is useful for future purpose. Applications: Improvement is to reduce the size of the hardware and weight of the hardware. It is mainly applicable for saving the victims' life under collapsed building and under rubble.
