The major threat to the today’s world is the terrorism in most parts of the world. Terrorist mostly enter the enemy nations through the borders. The borders are guarded by electric fences and security guards. In Indo-Pakistan border the extreme climatic condition is the challenging aspect in safe guarding the borders. So something which withstands extreme climate and which is cost effective is needed for our nation so that the loss of soldiers will also be avoided. In order to support this, a stationary gun is fixed which detects the moving object. The borders are captured with web cameras and are given as the input to the system. The moving object is eliminated by means of gun. It detects the moving object by background subtraction method with OpenCV and sends the location of the objects to Arduino. The location is calculated by means of pixels angles. These angles are sent as the input to the Arduino. The Stepper motor which is interfaced with the Arduino rotates according to the position of the moving object. A single gun cannot guard the whole border, so a series of guns are fixed at borders at certain intervals so that the intrusion of enemies will be detected in many guns and the enemies will be eliminated. This method will reduce the use of soldiers at borders and can safeguard the borders all time. It integrates the usage of technology by infusing smartness to suit the current needs and encouraging smart usage of available resources.
