All projects mutually dependent on software and hardware components for their operation are listed here. We explore the use of both software and hardware design in creating amazing projects. With that said, Projects in this section are a bit complex compared to other projects.
A LED matrix message display board that can be programmed from anywhere at anytime through SMS. Simply compose the message on any phone and send to a designated phone number and watch your message displayed immediately on the LEDs. The project makes use of a GSM module and a microcontroller as well as LEDs and other components. Microcontroller code is written in assembly for fast performance and high optimization.
This project allows the control of any electrical home appliance through an android phone. The project interfaces with the Android phone through bluetooth. A dedicated android app allows for ease of interaction with the project by allowing the user setup control switches and timer actions. The range of the device is sufficient for control of appliances within a standard home size.
Built around a fingerprint sensor module, this project helps examiners check against examination malpractice by allowing examiners verify candidates through their fingerprints. The project can function standalone or tethered to a computer. When tethered to a computer via USB, more features are made available such as ability to record candidate image data along with other data. When operated standalone, the device is battery powered and uses an LCD and keypad for user interaction.
Using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) we demonstrate how a student’s ID card can be digitized to store information about the student such as Name, Department, Registration Number, Blood group, Height etc. The hardware side of the project reads the card and communicated the data with a computer through USB interface.
A project that enables the monitoring and logging of body temperature and heart-rate of an individual over a period of time while being mobile. Logged data can be read to a computer system later for analysis. Real time monitoring is also possible with this project when it is connected to a computer.
In this project, a computer monitors the power consumed by an area, once a preset maximum load power is attained, the computer automatically switches a portion of that area to another power source. Once both sources are overloaded, a timing operation is executed to shed the load. This ensures an effective load shedding.
In cases of fire outbreak, this system detects the fire and sends an SMS notification to a remote user or the fire service board, displaying the particular room and the building that is on fire while also sounding an alarm to alert residents of the incident.
A digital card that contains information about a student, his use of the library – books borrowed and information about the books, returned books etc. This project is made possible through the use of a dedicated software and a hardware capable of Radio Frequency Identification principles.
A digital card that contains the medical information about a student or a staff. When it is slotted into a computer, all the information will be displayed. This project demonstrates the use of Radio Frequency Identification for the storage of data.
A computer system monitors which phase possesses power supply and then automatically switches the mains supply of a home and industry to the appropriate phase. On the event of a blackout, it engages the start and running of the generator. Switching and fault periods are stored by the computer.
