Communication Based Projects Ideas for Engineering Students

Using 8051 series Microcontrollers, a large number of communication based projects can be done. It involves variety of communication protocols like UART, RS232/Serial communication, I2C, CAN, Ethernet etc. Understanding these protocols gives practical exposure on how to interface various hardware devices/modules to the microcontroller. Programming concepts plays vital role in designing such projects. Knowledge on assembly language or C language is a pre-requisite for handling such projects. Student level projects  covers a wide range of areas those are commonly used in domestic and industrial applications such as GSM/GPS/Bluetooth/RFID/DTMF/Mobile/Ethernet/RF/XBEE/Networking/Data Acquisition/Smart Card.

Details about Few Communication Based Projects

1. Wireless Message Communication between Two Computers :

This project has been developed to ensure communication between computers in any organization using wireless technique. This system can be used at offices to ensure feasible communication between employees using wireless technique.

The 2.4GHz XBee module consisting of both the transmitter and the receiver module is interfaced to the serial port of the computer through a MAX 232 IC used as a level shifter IC. A timer is also used to provide signals to trigger a buzzer alarm in case of reception of message. Thus the person receiving a message can get a alarm tone about arrival of a new message.

2. PC based Electrical Load Control:

This project has been designed to be used at places like theatres, auditoriums where a centralized control system can be used to control the switching of all the electrical appliances. The control can be given through a central computer which gives commands which are accordingly processed by a microcontroller to control the switching of the loads.

The commands are given through the keyboard on the computer. The computer is interfaced to the microcontroller through a level shifter IC. The microcontroller on receiving the commands accordingly provides signals to the relay driver to drive the relay which in turn ensures the switching on or off of the lamp.

3. Password based Remote Controlled Door Opening by Android Application:

This project is designed to build a system wherein the door can be remotely opened or closed based on some password. The commands are sent from a smart phone with Graphical User Interface touch screen based application and accordingly processed to control the opening and closing of the door.

The GUI app on the smart phone with touch screen panel is used to enter the password. This password is send through Bluetooth communication to the receiver part. At the receiver part, the Bluetooth device receives the information and feeds the data to the microcontroller. The microcontroller matches this data with the one available in the microcontroller. If the password matches, the microcontroller sends appropriate signals to the motor driver to provide rotation to the motor so as to open the door.
