The short message service technology is one of the most stable and suitable technology for mobile communication. There are many kits are using SMS based technology in the field of voting as well as education and controlling system. In this kit, we are presenting the voting system via SMS.
Using SMS based voting system we can vote from our home just by sending an SMS in a particular format from our mobile. The voting system receives this message and microcontroller decodes and verifies the format if both formats match. Then the microcontroller accepts the vote otherwise rejected the vote. A GSM modem is used to receive messages from voters. And we are using an LCD to display the vote.
We are using the underlying technology of GSM modem to build an SMS based voting system. This kit is designed with an idea to use the cell phone as a remote controller. Cell phones are now a day’s used most widely and very commonly. We have made the project from a portability point of view; hence all the data are stored inside the microcontroller itself so that there is no need of a computer. Obviously, due to the limitation of the memory of the microcontroller, no of users is limited.
