Drowning is a leading cause of death followed by home accidents and road traffic accidents occur in most countries of the world. Statistic from Life Saving Malaysia Society of International Life Saving Federation shows that more than 400,000 people all over the world and 9,000 of them in US alone drown every year. This has proven that safety is a major concern for individuals who are dealing with water activities. Statistic also shows the numerical sum of death cases involving children drowning in recent years; thereof to prove that all bodies including government, legal sectors, NGOs, communities and also individuals by forthwith have to give full onus to obviate this tragedy. This calamity would be further increase if safety actions are inadvertently distracted. There under, ideas to prevail the case are unveiled by mean a communication-based apparel to protect and reduce the risk of children's suffocation posed by water activities. The purpose of this project is to design a final working prototype oi Intelligent Safety Jacket. 'Intelligent' by mean, best described as the feasibility of the jacket to automatically inflate when submerged into the water and abruptly, communication circuit integrated within the jacket will deliver SMS (Short Messaging Service) alert to receiver's mobile phone. Therewithal, the term 'intelligent' will also be recognized as the only communication-based apparel that can call for help. This project is mainly focusing on the Microprocessor II course by which PIC16F877 is being used as a microcontroller in C Language programming to transmit the data to GSM (Global Systems for Mobile Phone) modem before being notified by the receiver. Microprocessor II notes, Intro to C textbook, guidance from lecturers and extra findings on the internet are the main sources ofthis project. As to conclude, Intelligent Safety Jacket is engineered to the exact specification oidouble safety approach. It emphasizes three fundamental aspects; automatically inflate, SMS deliverysystem and the doublesafety approach.
