RFID and GSM based intelligent courier mailbox system with
automatic delivery notification.
The project aims in designing an intelligent courier mailbox system which is
capable of automatically sending information about mail to user and delivery notification
to courier officials. As the time moves the life style of the persons has completely
changed and there is no time for the people for micro management of every issue
personally. So, this is the right time to provide some space to the technology into our
lives for monitoring the issues which requires our personal presence for the things to
happen. One among those issues which require our personal presence is receiving the
courier which is sent back if we are not present at the time the courier boy comes to our
house. This may lead to the delay in receiving the important information and in some
scenarios it may also lead to tough situations. So our project aims in providing a very
reliable and very user friendly solution to overcome this kind of problem.
As we know the advancements in the Radio Frequency and GSM technologies
and making use of those existing technologies we can design a device which is capable of
identifying the arrival of courier and forward the same to the person who need to receive
the mail and also send an acknowledgement to the courier office so that they do not
require the signature of the particular person for whom the courier is meant for. The basic
idea of the system is to employ an RFID tag to the courier and send the identity number
to the receivers mobile. The receiver of the courier will have a letter box which has an RF
reader and a dedicated GSM modem in it. As soon as the courier boy drops the letter in to
it the RF reader reads the identity number of the tag and informs the same to the micro
controller and compares it with the identity number send by the courier office and if both
are same, then it sends message to the receiver and also to the courier office about the
arrival of the courier.
To design the entire system we require a microcontroller which acts as a
medium of communication between the RF reader and the GSM modem. The major
advantage of this system is the presence of the GSM modem enables the device to communicate with the receiver no matter where ever he was present on the globe (GSM
