Abstract

The project aims how the level of fuel can be monitored from a distant place and in case of theft can be detected easily from that place. For this, a level sensor will be needed which continuously will take the readings of the level of fuel at the tank (vehicle tank or any reservoir) and this level sensor will be connected to a microcontroller input.


        The IoT implementation part is the level of the fuel can be continuously monitored by displaying it on a website using an ESP8266 NodeMCU.


        Now to fulfil the second part i.e. to make it a fuel theft detection system there would be a threshold value of decreasing rate of the fuel level height. If the decreasing rate of fuel is greater than the threshold level an alarm will be sent to its owner in case of a vehicle tank or a buzzer will be on in case of industrial reservoir.
