Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is widely used for heating, cooking, automotive fuel, and a variety of other applications around the world. Liquefied Petroleum Gas is highly flammable. There had been many serious accidents, such as explosions and fires involving leakage of liquefied gas. If a leak is not noticed early enough, such accidents can have dangerous consequences. The problems of gas leakage and cylinder availability are faced daily. LPG is a flammable gas that is used to power heating appliances. The risk of structural fire, asphyxiation, or explosion is increased if this gas escapes. This problem can be solved by developing an effective means of detecting gas leaks. The user will be alerted via ThingSpeak as soon as a gas leak is detected. This project also deals with the percentage of gas remaining in the cylinder, which is determined by a sensor known as a load cell, and the percentage of gas remaining in the cylinder is constantly updated in ThingSpeak. When a gas leak is detected, the buzzer makes sound. In addition to this, gas levels are often detected and the user is alerted via ThingSpeak. The main goal of this project is to create a gas leak detection and monitoring system based on the Internet of Things (IoT). With the use of a gas sensor and a load sensor, this system will be able to monitor gas leakage and gas level. This data is transmitted to the user via the Internet of Things and displayed using ThingSpeak.
