Abstract: This study presents a wireless information and safety system for mines developed by CIMFR, Dhanbad. System consists of hardware devices and application software. Hardware module is ZigBee-compliant active radio frequency identification (RFID) devices/ transceivers, which can be programmed to act as end device (tag), router or coordinator that enables them to form an IEEE 802.15.4-based mesh network. It uses a unified wireless mesh-networking infrastructure to locate, trace and manage mobile assets and people as well as monitor different environmental conditions using sensors. Another core module is wireless sensor network (WSN) software, which is developed for tracking of underground miners and moveable equipment by wireless sensor networking in mines. Software is especially designed for tracking of miners and vehicles, route tracking in opencast mines, preventing fatal accidents and vehicle collisions, environmental monitoring, observing miners’ unsafe practice, sending alert message, and preparing computerized miners’ duty hours
