Abstract: This paper describes a smart bushfire monitoring system that can provide an early warning message in case of a bushfire. The system utilises short message service through global system for mobile (GSM) communication technology as a medium of communication. The device is composed of a temperature and humidity sensors that are connected to a microcontroller. The microcontroller also interfaces with a GPS receiver to report the module position and a GSM module to communicate the sensory information. This message can then be collected by either another mobile phone or SMS server for further action or processing. The details of the device architecture, developed algorithms, and performance are provided.
