The fishing is among the most dangerous of professions in the world over because once out on the sea, the fishermen are subject to various oceanographic and climatic conditions. Especially, so in the developing countries of South-East Asia, where fishing is a integral part of the economy, but there are no proper established systems for the safety of fishermen. This project aims at providing a possible solution to the various hardships faced by the fishermen because they are cut off from any form of communication.. In this project a portable device will be made, which uses GPS for real time location detection and uses Zigbee for wireless communication. The device also has a small LCD display and a button which acts as a multi purpose signaling switch. Each of the fishing boats is provided with this portable device. Using the Zigbee transceivers on each of the units, all the boats can form a AD Hoc network within themselves. Once this AD Hoc network is established, then the following applications will become possible.
