With the advent of and rapidly increasing use of organic, chemical, hazardous, non-hazardous, natural and man-made gases into various industrial processes like food processing industries, oil and gas sector, domestic usage and etc., the detection of sophisticated gas leakage system has become a concern and need of the hour. Chernobyl and Bhopal gas tragedies are some of the horrible examples that lay the foundations for the significance of this project. This paper is based on working model of an automated, low-cost, simple design, computer-based embedded instrumentation system, which can detect leakage of Liquefied Petroleum Gas and Carbon Dioxide Gas in surrounding environment using fast and accurate gas sensing technologies and then provide control action over the surrounding using final control elements to maintain the gas concentration within levels that human body can bear. To accomplish this objective a Graphical User Interface has been developed on LabVIEWTM that is interfaced with the gas sensor modules through Arduino (controller and data acquisition device) to track the real-time gas concentration and energize actuator mechanism to lower down the concentration by turning ON exhaust fans and hence perform function of a 'Control System'. The controlling action is effective and the results are promising. The energizing action is further used to generate alarms of gas leakage and hence this paper is aptly entitled as 'Gas Scathe Admonisher'. Data Acquisition System used in this process overcomes the human intervention and increases the overall efficiency and safety of the system. The Graphical User Interface with detailed information of prototype makes it useful for teaching purposes in laboratories for experimentation.
