Smart Digital Thermometer for Covid-19 Detection

During the COVID-19 epidemic, taking temperatures has been a major focus. The aim of this project is to implement a prototype of a cheap and high reliability digital temperature measurement device with the aid of Arduino Nano, Infrared temperature sensor (MXL90614), OLED 128 X 64 (0.96-inch screen size), IR sensor and buzzer. This thermometer uses an infrared sensor MXL90614 to detect the body temperature and then sends the reading to the microcontroller. If there is no hu...

Implementation of an Intelligent Motion Detector

This project is intended to provide a solution to a company's problem of developing a smart motion detection device for home and office security applications. The company intends to deploy 100s of these motion detectors throughout the Greater London Area. As a result, each motion detector will require a low power wide area network (LPWAN) wireless interface. Unlike traditional motion detectors, which detect only motion, the proposed motion detector will be able to detect motion direction (...

Development of a Low Cost Automatic Internet of Things Extension System

The aim of this work is to develop a prototype of a low cost automatic internet of things extension system that looks like a regular extension system but can be operated automatically. The extension system is controlled and monitored with the use of a smartphone application. The node MCU, ESP8266, 9V 1A power adapter, breadboard power supply USB – 5V/3.3V, 5V 4-channel relay, and 1602 LCD with I2C are used in the design consideration and executio...

HVAC VS HVDC Power System: Contemporary Development In HVAC And HVDC Power Transmission System

Abstract: The ability to transfer power in HVAC (High Voltage Alternating Current) system has undergone limitation by reactance when compared with the fact that systems of HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) can be accumulated to thermal limitation of the conductor. The transfer of power capabilities in HVDC and HVAC systems are compared with reference to their performance in different situations. Technological analysis conversion of existing alternating current (AC) lines into ...

Design and Implementation of Real Time Pricing System in Smart Grids

This paper focuses on incorporating a real time pricing in smart grids system. This scheme of real time pricing makes it possible to manage the load from the demand side or consumer side. This would provide several benefits to the domestic consumers too, apart from industrial consumers. In addition to conservation, real time pricing also comes along way in protecting and preserving the quality of equipment used by the power utility company. Real time distribution aims towards a unifo...

ENGINEERING CHARACTERIZATION OF OGBEKE CLAY DEPOSIT FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION

The engineering characterization of Ogbeke clay deposit has been investigated with a view of finding its usefulness in furnacerefractory production and home. The chemical composition analysis was carried out using Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS).The physical properties tests such as shrinkage, porosity, water absorption, modulus of rupture, refractoriness, moisture content,plasticity, cold crushing strength, thermal shock resistance and particles size analysis were carried out using inte...

Mixed H_2/H_∞ and Robust Predictive to Control Wheeled Mobile Robots with Time Delay

The purpose of this paper is to perform path tracking for a non-holonomic mobile robot subject to kinematic disturbances using model prediction and  H-2/H-infinity control and by Gain-scheduled control law. In this method, the problem of tracking a mobile robot is expressed in such a someway that its kinematic error is in the form of linear parameter variable with bounded disturbance, the purpose of the design...

Agricultural Automation with Smart Irrigation

As we know, nowadays issues in the agriculture field are a major concern. According to the Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare Narendra Singh Tomar, 5,579 Indian farmers died by suicide in 2020. There are many conflicting reasons for farmer suicides which are mentioned by Activists and scholars but high debt burdens, crop failure, mental health, and personal issues have been some of the most common causes amongst them. So, what is the solution that would work in farm...

Development of the Shape of the Cam Profile of Mechanical Yam Vibrator Using Cycloid Motion

At a high frequency of vibration; the cam of a vibrator always encounters the issue of jamming or the follower rolling off or losing contact with the cam when the appropriate design is not carried out. This study, therefore, developed the shape of the cam profile of mechanical yam vibrator using cycloid motion. Displacement equations from the base circle to the cam profile were developed to obtain the shape of the cam using cycloid motion. A vibrometer was used to evaluate the developed...

DETERMINATION OF ENGINEERING PROPERTIES OF TWO SOILS AT FOHREC (KADE) AND SIREC (KPONG)

Agriculture, its operations, and soils properties are inter-related. Cultivation of crops; tillage, irrigation and farm operations, commuting to and from farm plot and building of structures are greatly influenced by the soil specifically its properties. Shear stress, cohesion and angle of friction are parameters that play major roles in influencing how soils are used or worked on. It is, therefore, important to determine the shear stress, cohesion and angle of friction of the soils in Kade a...

THE EFFECT OF TIRE PRESSURE ON FUEL CONSUMPTION DURING TRACTOR-PLOUGH OPERATION.

In the world today, due to the high cost of running a tractor on a farm, there has been many research to see ways of minimizing this cost. Some of these cost come from the tire of the tractor, amount of fuel needed to run the vehicle smoothly, buying spare parts of the tractor and ensuring safety of the tractor. This thesis seeks to find the effect that tire pressures of vehicles have on the fuel consumption and the various ways of reducing this effect if there are any.An experiment was condu...

Cascaded PID Control System for UAV with Gain Factor Prediction Using ML

Drones are not inherently stable, necessitating the use of a flight controller. If the UAV is properly tuned, the drone will fly steadily; otherwise, it won't. Hence, we have used a PID (proportional, integral, differential) controller for a stable flight. A well-functioning PID controller should enable amazing climbs and long-range flights. But, when used singly, PID controllers can provide poor performance, resulting in a long settling time, overshoot, and oscillation. Here, we propose a ne...
