Touch Screen Project Ideas for Engineering Students on Home and Industrial Automation Systems

Touch screen technology has been around for a number of years but advanced touch screen technology has come on in leaps and bounds recently. Companies are including this technology into more of their products. The three most common touch screen technologies include resistive, capacitive and SAW (surface acoustic wave). Most of low end touch screen devices contain on a standard printed circuit plug-in board and are used on SPI protocol. The system has two parts, namely; hardware and software. The hardware architecture consists of a stand-alone embedded system using a  8-bit microcontroller,  several type of interface and driver circuits. The system software driver is developed using an interactive C programming language.

1. Touch Screen Based Home Automation System:

The project is designed to wirelessly control electrical appliances using RF communication. It uses a control board at the receiver end and another control board at the transmitting end. A touch screen display along with a microcontroller is used at the transmitting side. By using this display one can transmit the information on which load is to be ON / OFF. On the receiver side a microcontroller along with other peripherals is used to process the data received by the transmitter.

2. Touch Screen Based Remote Controlled Robotic Vehicle for Stores Management:

A touch screen based remote control is designed to control a robotic vehicle using RF technology. At the receiving end, a robotic vehicle is used which picks an object and displaces it from one location to another. A microcontroller is used in this project at both the ends i.e., at the transmitting and receiving side to control the complete project. The robotics vehicle consists of a soft catching arm to avoid excessive pressure on the object which is handled.

3. Touch Screen Based Industrial Load Switching:

A touch screen display is used in this project to manage switching of industrial loads. Using conventional switches in highly inflammable area could lead to disasters. So touch screen displays can be used in these conditions for switching of these appliances. The control unit comprises of a microcontroller interfaced with the touch screen display along with other peripherals to perform the desired operation.

A touch screen panel is interfaced to the microcontroller. Open touching a specific part of the panel, the microcontroller receives the information about the coordinates of the part and processes the information to obtain the required data (the load number to be switched) and accordingly the particular optoisolator is given the signal to trigger the TRIAC and the lamp is switched on as current flows through it.
