Microcontroller based Automatic Power Factor Controlling System

The Embedded Technology is now in its prime and the wealth of knowledge available is mind-blowing. Embedded technology plays a major role in integrating the various functions associated with it. This needs to tie up the various sources of the Department in a closed loop system. This proposal greatly reduces the manpower, saves time and operates efficiently without human interference. This project puts forth the first step in achieving the desired target. With the advent in technology, the existing systems are developed to have in built intelligence.

Exercise Monitoring System

Our project inspiration came from a previous project both of us had worked on a previous year. At that time, we had both worked on separate projects involving a simple Pedometer using a MSP430 microcontroller. Unfortunately, due to time constraints and hardware failures, we were unable to complete the project. Unwilling to accept defeat, we attempted the project again, but with the intention of providing greater functionality, better user interface, and a working final product. While we understood that many smartphone apps provide a similar functionality, we wanted to see if we could provide comparable functionality without all the need for fancy hardware and expensive data plan.

Automatic Rain Sensing Wiper Cum Headlight Controller

The world today is moving ahead at a very fast pace. Some of the very common examples of fast moving objects are aeroplanes, high speed cars and many more. In our everyday life we come across many fast moving vehicles and so it is very important to measure the speed of these vehicles. Continue reading Automatic Rain Sensing Wiper Cum Headlight Controller

Smart Trash system

Abstract :-
Project Green Stations is all about changing the way people see the environment. Imagine the go-green movement as a brand. By designing elegant, simple, and technologically advanced waste bins, we improve one element that affects that perception; one element that almost all students, faculty, and staff at Cornell see every day. Continue reading Smart Trash system

Cooking Assistant for Automatic Temperature Control

Abstract :-
In some cooking scenarios, it is desirable to achieve a specific object temperature and keep the object at that temperature. However, it is difficult to maintain a constant temperature without constant attention. To aid cooking in this scenario, we created a device that can be added to an electric stovetop or hot plate and serve as an automated assistant. This project contains circuit diagram, controller programming, block diagram and other useful stuff. Continue reading Cooking Assistant for Automatic Temperature Control

Remote Power Control Through LAN

Abstract :-
Power Manager is a remote power management system that can be controlled through a web browser on a local area network (LAN). Devices plugged into Power Manager’s outlets can be turned on or off with the click of a button on a webpage. Power Manager runs on an ATMEGA644 microcontroller and an ENC28J60 Ethernet controller. Together, this embedded system acts as a web server to serve a web page that allows the user to turn on or off the supply of power to the connected devices. The project serves as a fundamental element in a home automation system. Continue reading Remote Power Control Through LAN
