1. Digital Code Lock with LCD and Keypad using 8051 Microcontroller

In this project, digital lock bringing into play AT89C2051′ LCD is used to display & a keypad is used to input the values. The project code is written in “C” language. It is a simple project which helps in preventing hacking. The fundamental lock is of 5 digits & master lock is of 10 digits. It is not a simple task for any hacker to break through the security system. To input the security digits 4 by 3 keypad is used & the input values are displayed to the user on a 2 by 16 LCD screen. A pin is allocated as output to activate and deactivate the security lock.

2. Magnetic Levitation Circuit

This is an uncomplicated magnetic levitation diagram which hangs up objects at a predetermined distance underneath an electromagnet. The logic or science at the back of it is to basically supply a magnetic force which is equal & opposite to the force of gravity on the object. The two forces applied cancel each other and the object linger hanging in the air. Sensibly this is done by a circuit which decreases electromagnet force when an object comes too nearby, and raises it when the object is far out of the range.

3. Anti collision system for trains

These days a number of new systems are invented to evade the train collisions. This project is one such way to confine the train collisions. In this project, the microcontroller is united with the GPS modem, GSM modem or cellular phone. GPS modem will discover the current locations of the train through satellite. The keyboard & display screen are also used with the controller for the convenience of the user. GSM cell phone is employed to provide appropriate information via SMS to the drivers of the train as well as to the controlling booths. With the help of this project, the train drivers can obtain apt signal information and the collisions can be evaded. In this project microcontroller is attached with a display (LCD screen), Keyboard, Memory card and a GPS recipient. Particular train have GPS recipient with a microcontroller together with a GSM Mobile or Modem.

4. Intelligent load shedding using GSM

Integrating automatic system in each & every machine is very much required as it helps in saving lot of time spent on it. In production units where a control is maintained over the usage of power i.e. below the predetermined maximum demand, there it is a big hitch. If the predetermined maximum usage go beyond then the production units have to give a penalty to the electricity department. Therefore an automation method is necessary to work out the problem. The max demand is define as the product of the current and the voltage that has been used by the loads. The significance of the max demand fluctuates for diverse sub-stations depending upon the load. The collective maximum demand is the instant average value of max demand. In this project, microcontroller is connected with a GSM Modem & RTC. For the convenience of user LCD screen is also connected with the microcontroller. Hence, the critical and non-critical loads are coupled through relays.

5. Tongue Motion Controlled Wheel Chair

TDS (tongue drive system) is a tongue operated unobtrusive supportive technology, which can prospectively give people with brutal disabilities a successful computer accessible and environment friendly control. It converts users’ intents into commands to control by sensing and categorizing their voluntary tongue movement using a small stable magnet, placed on the tongue and a collection of magnetic sensors assembled on a receiver outside the mouth. We have developed and applied four control tactics to drive a PWC (powered wheel chair) using an outside TDS model.
