Along with the fast growing economy of a dEveloping country as far as India is concerned, there has been reported an emerging number of crime and criminal offences. In many of the cases the suspects are quite freely escaped because of the insufficient testimonials and lack of communication links in time. As an instance, suppose a bank robbery takes place and right then no one is able to press the emergency buzzer or to dial up to nearest police station. Eventually, when the nearest police station is informed about the fact, the gang is beyond the reach leaving no clue behind. Same is observed in many cases as rash driving and hit and run, Eve teasing and molestation of women at less crowded streets, pick pocketing and blackmailing at Automatic Teller Machines at roadside and many more. Where there is a crime involved, there has to be a quality surveillance and expert actuation to stand against all these activities with minimum human intervention. Our goal is to design an intelligent device that can continuously keep an eye on any activity happening around it and on administrator's request it can track any suspect, be it an object or a human being, with minimum power consumption and least human efforts. As an actuator it sends a signal to the nearest traffic control or police station intimating the state of crime along with its location and also tells about which direction it is heading to. In view of a real-Time establishment of the concept, the flying device is designed to be a robot that looks and flies like a Bird, the processor is chosen to be ARDUINO UNO, the image processing is made by mat-lab tool and the communication link between the administrator and the device is via RFID system and between device and the police control is achiEved by GPS/GSM technology.
