Abstract: Self-construction of a hot object detection system has been prepared by using a commercialized temperature sensor (connected to the computer for data collection) to monitor any temperature changes produced by an object buried in the medium (sand). The monitoring was carried out based on real time measurements. For this work, the sensor has been varied its depth (the distance from the sensor to the hot object). From the experimental result, it was found that the apparatus could perform appropriately for the detection. This apparatus set up is potentially to be developed for human rescues detection of any foreign object including survivors buried in the ground caused by natural disaster of earthquake and volcanic eruption.
