The increased number of hazardous materials transportation accidents has caused a series of environmental and health problems across the world. In this paper, a hazardous materials transportation monitoring system (HMTM) is designed, implemented, and tested using multi-interface Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). In order to meet various state tanker transportation information collection, we designed a multi-interface sensor node. According to energy consumption and response time during clustering of Wireless Sensor Networks LEACH (Low Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy) routing protocol, we proposed STATIC-LEACH routing protocol based on static clustering, it can effectively reduce energy consumption of the wireless sensor nodes and reduce network latency of cluster. The project is targeting a deployment on the vehicles. Ambient situation of the vehicles and also the state of the goods is monitored and is used to determine the safety status of the transportation.
