Abstract : Every day we hear news about our fishermen killed or imprisoned by neighboring countries when they cross the national sea border inadvertently. Also, when fishermen sight a foreign trawler poaching in their fishing grounds, they watch helplessly, sometimes trying to fight resulting in injuries and death. The trawler would often leave without fear of penalty. Poaching is a serious problem since this would cause environmental crisis in coastal zones. We want to design a new device that would help remove all these problems. Border alert system for fisherman using GPS is one such system which protects the fishermen by notifying the country border to them by using Global Positioning System (GPS) and Global system for mobile communication (GSM). The main aim of the proposed system is to design an innovative android application which would alert the Tamil Fisher Men (Indian Fisher Men) as well as coastguard when an intruder or poacher is found within the protected sea waters with a single press button by location sharing. The device would also warn the fishermen (beep and vibrate) when they approach near the national sea border and controls them to trawl (go fishing) within the safe region so that the piracy of ship can be easily brought under control and the hijack of the ship by the pirates can be eradicated. The proposed application can be placed on entire boats and by knowing the locations of all the boats the traffic can be assisted also, the lost ship wrecks due to natural calamities can be identified. The system provides an indication to both fisherman and to coastal guard. Thus it saves the lives of the fisherman and alerts the control station to provide help by dispatching the patrol boats.
