The paper deals with Save Our Souls (SOS) wireless ad hoc network. This system works well in emergency situations when the normal network or the mobile communication may fail or connection may be lost by natural disaster, and also it is utilized in the routine life of people. It is useful to communicate with the people who are in need of help from others. This goal is achieved through the ad hoc wireless network which makes the communication much easier in a multi-hop fashion. This network is easy to the victim who wants help in their struggled situation. In this paper, the network will pass the one-word communication (e.g., panic, help, and struggle). Instead of using wired communication or mobile communication, the radio-frequency (RF) signal for communication is utilized. The main objective of the paper is to make a device which is placed on a lamppost each having 20-m distance.
