Smart E Glasses for Voltage Measurement

Here we propose smart glasses for electrical works for easy voltage measurement while working. Usually while testing/troubleshooting electrical works/PCB the person faces issues while placing probes on 2 points and looking at the multi meter at the exact time. This consumes a lot of time as well leads to faulty/improper measurements. To solve this issue we propose to integrate voltage display through the user’s glasses for a virtual voltage display while troubleshooting/ testing the system. We use a raspberry pi based circuit for processing and displaying output. The glass frame is made using a smartly constructed miniature frame. The frame is constructed to fit a mini display along with circuitry and the display lens used for desired reflection on the glass frame. The system is fabricated so as to fit easily on a person’s ears and enable the person to view the circuitry along with voltage measured. The circuit consists of a voltage measurement circuit that is integrated to the glass in order to get the voltage inputs to the raspberry pi display. Thus we have an efficient voltage measurement display using raspberry pi.

Automatic Sketching Machine Project

Drawing perfect sketch by hand can now be done by machines too. Here we propose an automated image sketching machine that sketches drawings similar to a real human but with a lot more accuracy. The proposed system makes use of an Arduino based circuitry that is interfaced with motors and belt based setup that is used to provide the mechanism needed by a pen to draw the sketch. The Arduino based circuit is interfaced with 2 stepper motors and one servo motor in order to transmit the movement commands as per the image fed to it. It then controls the sketching process through a well-controlled mechanism in order to achieve this task. The pen only touches the paper where a dot is to be placed is raised above the paper by the motor where not needed. This motion coupled with the x and y axis movement of the motors allows for a 2D sketching mechanism on the paper using this mechanism.

Smart Dustbin with IOT Notifications

With increase in population we have an increase in the garbage around urban areas. Here we propose a smart dustbin that operates automatically to help solve this issue using IOT and sensor based circuitry. Usual dustbins require to be opened by pressing foot against its lever and then throwing garbage. Also a person needs to keep track when it is full so that it can be emptied and does not overflow. Here we propose a smart dustbin that does all this by itself. Our system consists of a sensor in order to detect human clap signal and on a clap of foot tap it opens automatically without anyone needing to press its lever. The dustbin opens automatically when it receives the signal and closes its hatch. Also the dustbin consists of a level sensing ultrasonic sensor that constantly measures the level of garbage in the bin and automatically detects if it is about to fill up. The dustbin now consists of a smart circuitry that transmits this information over the web to signal the main garbage collector of the facility to empty the particular garbage bin. This bin is of a vast usage in offices, homes and even in public places for garbage management. Thus we get a fully automated smart dustbin that allows for automated garbage cleaning.

Women’s Safety Device with GPS Tracking & Alerts

Women’s safety is a very important issue due to rising crimes against women these days. To help resolve this issue we propose a gps based women’s safety system that has dual security feature. This device consists of a system that ensures dual alerts in case a woman is harassed or she thinks she is in trouble. This system can be turned on by a woman in case she even thinks she would be in trouble. It is useful because once an incident occurs with a woman she may or may not get the chance to press the emergency button. In a button press alerting system, in case a woman is hit on the head from behind, she may never get the chance to press panic button and no one will know she is in trouble. Our system solves this problem. This device is to be turned on in advance by a woman in case she is walking on a lonely road or some dark alley or any remote area. Only the woman authenticated to the devices can start the system by fingerprint scan. Once started the devices requires the woman to constantly scan her finger on the system every 1 minute, else the system now sends her location to the authorized personnel number through SMS message as a security measure and also sounds a buzzer continuously so that nearby people may realize the situation. In this case even if someone hits the woman or the woman falls down and get unconscious, she does not need to do anything, the system does not get her finger scan in 1 minute and it automatically starts the dual security feature. This device will prove to be very useful in saving lives as well as preventing atrocities against women. The device uses GPS sensor along with a gsm modem, lcd display, leds and microcontroller based circuit to achieve this system.

Sun Tracking Solar Panel Using Arduino

Solar energy is an unlimited source of energy which if harnessed properly will get the mankind devoid of using the conventional sources of energy he has been long using. This project has been designed keeping this in view to make the harnessing of solar energy more efficient. Sun Tracking Solar Panel Using Arduino project is based on Arduino controller board which controls the various activities of the project. A Solar Panel is used to harness solar energy. Also, since a panel which is incident to the sun can gather more amount of solar energy, the solar panel is attached to a motor. This motor is electrically connected to the controller board. The system periodically checks the availability of solar energy from one horizon to other horizon periodically. In the scan it checks which direction has maximum incident solar energy and hence the incident sun and positions the solar panel in that direction. In this way maximum power that can be harnessed with the Solar Panel is harnessed by the system.

Rotating Solar Panel Using Arduino

Energy demands in the recent years have been recorded to be growing at an exponential rate by the commercial and as well as domestic markets. While the non-renewable resources are rapidly getting depleted, it leaves no other option but to use renewable resources to produce usable energy. One of these resources, the Solar energy is the most abundant and easy to harness resource through Solar panels. This project makes this process of harnessing solar energy more efficient. The Rotating Solar Panel Using Arduino project aims at charging a 12VDC Battery with the help of a Solar Panel mounted on platform which can rotate with the help of a motor. This motor is getting controlled by Atmega328 microcontroller mounted on an Arduino Uno Board which is in turn mounted on the PCB. The Rotating Solar Panel system scans from one horizon to other to know the current position of sun and hence the position from which the greater solar energy can be harnessed. The position which has the highest energy capacity is chosen to charge the Battery. In this way we can harness the most of from the Solar panel by adjusting it to be incident directly towards Sun consistently. Thus this project makes this process of harnessing solar energy more efficent and hence smarter.

IOT Based Fire Department Alerting System

Fires are one of the most widespread cause of deaths by accident. Instant alerting to the fire department is necessary to ensure immediate action. Every minute can save many lives in such situations. So here we propose an IOT based automatic fire department alerting system that instantly and automatically alerts the fire department and informs about the situation so that immediate action can be taken. The system uses Fire sensor along with PIR sensor to efficiently detect fires and alert fire department over IOT. We use an arduino uno in order to check if a sensor is triggered. Then it reconfirms if it really is a fire outbreak using temperature sensors in order to confirm of fire outbreak. The system now uses a wifi connection to access IOT server and transmit data about this incident over internet. We here use IOTGecko platform to develop the web based IOT interface. As soon as IOTGecko system receives the sensor data it checks the device id data was sent from and displays device id(which will be named after area/flat id). The system now displays the fire incident with alarm buzzer in the fire department over internet so that the fire department personnel are alerted about the incident to take necessary action.

Coin Based Water Dispenser System

Here we put forward a fully automated coin based water dispenser system using microcontroller and sensor. The system is capable of fully automated water/cola dispensing using motors and sensors. The system also senses if glass is placed at the counter to avoid water spoilage if there is no glass placed at the counter panel. The system uses IR sensors to detect presence of glass and then the sensors send a signal to the microcontroller. The microcontroller now processes the information sent by the sensors to determine if glass is present. The system also has a coin detector that is used to sense particular coins and send information to microcontroller about valid coins. On detecting a valid coin the system now sends a signal to the controller who checks if glass is present and then it starts the motor to pour water in glass using motor as long the glass is present. If glass is removed during the process, system stops the water supply until glass is encountered. Thus we here put forward a smart water dispenser system with water saving feature.

Fingerprint Based Bank Locker System

The fingerprint based bank locker system is an enhancement to the traditional bank locker system that uses keys. Now keys can easily be copied and made by theif’s who know about it. Also the keys must be taken care of and can also be lost due to some negligence. Well fingerprint based bank locker system is here to solve all these issues. The fingerprinted authenticated bank locker system is safe as well as easy to use and maintain. No key handling no need to worry about key getting lost. The system uses fingerprint sensing to read fingerprints and first store registered fingerprints against the bank locker record. Now next time a person scans finger the sensor reads it and compares it with past records. Now if match is found with existing prints, it sends the match signal to the microcontroller and the controller displays this data on the LCD display.

IOT Irrigation Monitoring & Controller System

Farmers usually work on large portions of land to grow different types of crops. It is not always possible for one person to be able to keep track of the entire farmland all the time. Sometimes it may happen that a given patch of land receives more water leading to water-logging, or it might receive far less or no water at all leading to dry soil. In either of the cases, the crops can get damaged and farmer may suffer losses. So in order to solve this problem, we propose an “IOT Irrigation Monitoring and Control Project”. This is a very useful project wherein, the user can monitor and control the supply of water from a remote location. This system makes use of a concept called IOT (Internet of Things). So for our project, we connect our system to the internet using a Wi-Fi module. We use an Arduino Uno board to send the control signals and to connect to our desired website. On the website, two things are displayed:
a) Motor status
b) Moisture level

The circuit keeps checking the moisture content of the soil by means of a moisture sensor, and updates the “Moisture level” on the website. The user can then check the current moisture level from a remote location and control the water supply. For this, the user only has to toggle the “Motor status” from ‘ON-OFF’ or ‘OFF-ON’; and the “water pump” will be ‘turned ON’ or ‘turned OFF’ accordingly. Thus the ‘soil-moisture’ gets monitored and the ‘water supply’ can be controlled just by the toggling the “Motor status”. So the user doesn’t have to worry about his crops or plants getting damaged due to ‘water-logging’ or ‘drought’. This system can also be useful for people having small gardens, while it may not be possible for a person to be continuously present at his/her garden but one can use this project to keep a track of ‘soil-moisture’ and ensure proper water supply even from a distance.
