1.  Introduction of Smart Tool Kit

FOD (Foreign Object Damage) is a major problem in the aviation industry. The FOD can be described as an object or substance which does not belong to the aircraft and cause serious damage to it. The smallest objects such as stones, paper clips, birds and tools etc. can cause huge damage to the aircraft. The tool FOD is also a big problem and occurs when workers left tools in the aircraft while they were manufacturing the aircraft or servicing it. The leftover tools I the aircraft can cause the shutdown of the flight operations or can cause injury to the passengers who are sitting in the flight. Therefore there is a need for such a solution that will allow the aviation authority to mitigate Tool FOD and can enhance the safety of the flight operation.

Aircraft safety is everyone's responsibility and it is very important to save lives and great losses. The purpose of the project is to reduce the external debris (FOD) by a certain percentage which helps to reduce aviation accidents through the project of “Smart Tools Kit”  which keeps the tools like a screwdriver, tape measure and pliers from losing and Look for them easily. The idea of this research project is to organize the tools in an orderly way by put sensors at each tool. We also have a set of lights that work with each sensor, when you take a tool such as screwdriver the lights will come on to inform the director of control. In return, we have a timer that works according to the timing of the working when any tool is lost. In case of loss of a tool is searched easily by remote control by clicking on the number of the tool and make a sound that lets us know its location.

1.1. Aim of the Project of Smart Tool Kit

In the aircraft industry safety should be the utmost priority because the risks such as FOD can cause great harm to the aircraft and the aircraft can become the victim of a huge accident which can result in the loss of many lives. Many accidents have indicated that FOD is a major threat to the aircraft and causes huge damage to the aircraft and sometimes it results in serious damage to the individuals who are in the aircraft. The purpose of the aim of this project is to decline the risk of FOD up to a lot of extents. The Smart Tools Kit project can help the aircraft industry to reduce external debris.

The smart tool kit will help the workers in the aircraft industry to manage their tools efficiently and if any worker has left the tools in the aircraft, then they can be easily located. The sensors will be placed in the tools which will allow the workers to allocate them easily. He Smart Tool Kit project can not only be used in the aviation industry but can also be applied in industries such as railways, marine vessels, automation, oil & gas, and other engineering industries where FOD can cause serious consequences. With Smart Tool kit, the workers will not lose the tools, and if this happens, then tools can be found in less amount of time.

The aim of this research project is to find a solution to the problem of Tool FOD. The project's aim is to reduce accidents and provide safety in-flight maintenance. The FOD is a major problem, and if this problem is analyzed critically, then it can be understood that it not only deadly for the machines but also for human beings as well.
