Digital Logic Design & Mobile Application
Abstract / Introduction In this project students will be required to automate home using smart phone application and arduino micro controller board. Students will control home electricity appliances like lights and fans. Project will comprise of two parts hardware and software part. In hardware interfacing part student will write the code for arduino and setup the relay modules, sensors and board. For software part student will write an application for arduino, student will be required to work on these parts simultaneously. Do note that students will not use mains powers supply AC 220 Volts, they will use battery powered appliances to avoid the shock.
For Application 1. A fully functional android application capable of communicating with arduino (Via Bluetooth or WiFi) 2. Application will show switches to turn on/off appliances.
For Hardware 1. Arduino board setup along with code to control the lights and fan. 2. Relay modules properly setup. 3. LCD to display status of devices (Optional)
Important Notes: 1. Student will buy his/her own hardware. Virtual university will not provide hardware or financial assistance to buy hardware.
2. To avoid any electrical shock student will not use mains supply AC 220 Volts, instead for their project student will control DC lights and Fan. However relay module used should be capable for controlling 220V appliances. 3. C code will be used for arduino and Java for the mobile application.
Tools: NetBeans IDE, JDK, Arduino IDE
