The Design Of An Electronic Voting Machine With A Gsm Module

AbstractThe main objective of this project was to design a cost effective and efficient electronic voting system interfaced with a GSM module. There is need to replace the conventional voting system based on paper in Zimbabwe and many African countries by electronic voting machines which are cheaper, more secure and less cumbersome. Voting is when societies or a particular group of people come up with decisions based on choice and or preferences hence the need for a cheaper, more secure,...

Feasibility Study Of Controlling And Monitoring Airfield Lighting System At Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo International Airport Using Scada Based Technology

AbstractJoshua Mqabuko Nkomo International Airport was established in 1959 then known as Bulawayo Airport. It is located in the second largest city of Zimbabwe, 25 km to the north of the City of Kings- Bulawayo. JM Nkomo Airport is the second largest airport in Zimbabwe and boasts of two runways which are 2,588 meters long by 45 metres wide and 1,347 metres by 30 metres wide capable of handling wide bodied aircraft such as the Boeing 767. The airport operates 24 hours...

Web Based Home Automation System Using Arduino

AbstractThe aim of home automation is to control home devices from a central control point. In this paper, I present the design and implementation of a low cost but yet flexible and secure internet based home automation system. Nowadays, Internet has spread worldwide and most of the internet connections use Ethernet as media for data transfer. In industries or in home appliances, most of the time we need to monitor and control different parameters using microcontrollers. The popularity of hom...

Design And Implementation Of An Android Based Tomato Irrigation System

ABSTRACTThe advent of technology has made life easier, smooth and smarter. Smart phones are being applied in all aspects of life, be it Medical field, Military, Aviation or Agriculture. Agriculture is one of the key drivers of Zimbabwe`s Economy. The majority of Zimbabweans venture into farming for both personal sustenance as well as sustenance of the nation as a whole. Small farming projects are being carried out in the backyards of urban areas. People have resorted to growing Potatoes, Bean...

Autonomous Pharmaceutical - Packaging Serializer On a Conveyor Belt With Pick & Place Aggregation System

ABSTRACTThe pharmaceutical supply chain in Zimbabwe and abroad is wrought with unscrupulous traders who have flooded the medical market with illegal, tampered and falsely labelled counterfeit drugs. The risk posed by these products has proved to be fatal to patients in recent years; and this is only the beginning of the problem. The local generic pharmaceutical industry has been dealt a huge blow due to the open boarder trading and excessive importation of falsified medicines into the country...

Automatic Sector Synthesis System for Wireless Base Station Antennas based on traffic load

ABSTRACTConsidering mobile wireless networks in Zimbabwe, most base station wireless antennas are positioned in a three sector sequence, which is always symmetric and rigid. NetOne Zimbabwe always maintains this setup while Econet takes a step further by conducting RF optimization and re-arrange the azimuth, the engineers and riggers travel to the site to make alterations and it becomes an extra unexpected expense to the company. This calls for the need to come up with an automatic system tha...

Tollgate Collection System Using Rfid Technology

ABSTRACTThe toll collection system currently used in Zimbabwe is an open system whereby toll levies are collected manually by toll collectors at various tollgates across the country. This system has negative effects on both the drivers and passengers as it causes time delays and traffic congestion at tollgates especially during public holidays where traffic volumes are enormous as people will be travelling. The Tollgate Collection System using RFID Technology project will eliminate hard cash ...

Design Of An Intranet Radio Using Real Time Transport Protocol For University Campus

AbstractThe dissipation of information is an essential aspect of any community. The advent of mediaservices such as television and radio has improved the way information has been broadcasted tothe general public. Unfortunately in Zimbabwe Universities, these services have not yet beenutilized. This Dissertation illustrates a prototype of campus radio streaming system over anintranet. This is to provide local universities with a cheaper alternative to providing a local radiostation compared to...

Automated Water Reticulation System

ABSTRACTPrior studies have identified many problems of having poor water sanitation system. The major problem being rise of water-borne diseases. This thesis is an advancement to an argument that the leading root cause of the water-borne disease outbreaks in Zimbabwe was the unsustainable urban environmental practice especially in the water reticulation system. The overarching purpose of this project is to give a solution to a case in which the failure in proper water reticulation system in u...

Design of a low cost indoor ultrasonic intruder deterrent system with GSM based SMS notification

ABSTRACTHome/ Bank/ Office security has been a major issue where crime is increasing and everybody wants to take proper measures to prevent intrusion. The project is aimed at developing the security of home against Intruders. In a case of intrusion while the user is out of the house, then the device sends SMS to the emergency number provided to it and also display it on LCD connected to it. The paper consists of a background into the area At mega 2560 microcontroller, sensing elements and GSM...

RFID Based E-Passport System

AbstractThis dissertation analyses the use of RFID cards as e-passports instead of the conventionalpaper passport booklet with an embedded chip as the e-passport. Advancement in technologycomes with so many possibilities that all information can be stored electronically. Thepurpose is to limit the use of counterfeit documents. This in turn will prevent illegal entry ofthe traveller into any specific country at the same time maintaining the privacy and personalsecurity of the e-passport bearers.

Gsm Based Water Distribution Monitoring And Control System

Abstract The GSM Based Water Distribution Monitoring and Control System improves the water distribution by providing the automation of water levels in the tanks and monitoring and control of water flow in the distribution network. Water sensor detects the water level in the tanks and then sends signal to the microcontroller unit for actuation of valve and pump. The water monitoring system can detect leakages in the distribution pipeline. If a leakage occurs, an upstream solenoid val...

Massive Mimo Based Network Planning And Performance Evaluation For High Speed Broadband Connection In Rural Areas Of Tanzania

ABSTRACT People living in rural areas need broadband connection for services such as e-governance, virtual class rooms, telemedicine, video-on-demand, home entertainment. Therefore, the need for high speed broadband connection in rural areas is inevitable. However, in order to provide broadband services, service providers must incur high deployment cost and wait for a long time for return on investments. Long Term Evolution (LTE) has been proposed to overcome high deployment cost, althou...

Quantitave Evaluation Of Uhf Tv White Spaces, For Rural Broadband Connectivity

ABSTRACT With the increase in use of internet access across the world, there has been a shift from classic wired connection technology to the faster and efficient mobile wireless solutions. Zimbabwe as a country is also experiencing this upsurge. However, its hindered by the lack of flexible connection solutions in the densely populated rural areas. A perceived “digital divide” exists between the rural and urban population. This study seeks to explore a new way of breaking this divi...
