Applications of Embedded System Based Real-Time Projects

An embedded system is an electronic or computer system that is designed to control, access the data in electronics based systems. Embedded system comprises a single chip microcontroller such as ARM, Cortex,and also FPGAs, microprocessors, ASICs and DSPs. In the present times, the usage of embedded systems is widespread. But the software which is programmed into the microcontroller is capable of solving only a limited range of problems. Embedded-system based projects are capable of doing multitasks, and are also capable of interfacing with the other networks and devices.

Applications of Embedded Systems

Applications of embedded systems are applicable in areas like space, communication, transportation, robotic systems, home appliances, etc. This article is intended to give information about the embedded system applications. Based on the performance requirements, these systems are categorized into four types such as stand alone, networked, mobile and real time embedded systems.

Real Time Applications of Embedded Systems

Embedded systems have a vast variety of application domains that varies from low cost to high, consumer electronics to industrial equipments, entertainment devices to academic equipments and medical instruments to weapons and aerospace control systems. The applications of embedded systems include home appliances, office automation, security, telecommunication, instrumentation, entertainment, aerospace, banking and finance, automobiles personal and in different embedded systems projects.

1. Embedded System for Detecting Rash Driving on Highways

The main intention of this project is to design a highway speed-checker device that identifies rash driving on highways and alarms the traffic authorities if the speed checker finds any vehicle violating the set speed limits on highways.

2. Application of Embedded System for Street Light Control

The main intention of this project is to detect the movement of vehicles on highways and to switch on street lights ahead of it, and then to switch off the street lights as the vehicle go past the street lights to conserve energy.  In this project, a PIC microcontroller is programmed by using embedded C or assembly language.

3. Embedded System for Traffic Signal Control System

The main goal of this project is to design a density based traffic signal system. At every junction, the signal timing changes automatically according to the traffic density at every junction. Traffic jam is a major problem in many cities across the world and gives regular nightmares to the commuters and travelers .

4. Application of Embedded System for Vehicle Tracking

The main purpose of this project is to find the exact location of a vehicle by using a GPS modem and in order to reduce vehicle thefts. The GSM modem sends an SMS to a predefined mobile which stores the data in it. An LCD display is used to display the location information in terms of latitude and longitude values. The microcontroller (AT89C52) is pre programmed with the Keil software and therefore, continuously checks the GPS modem.
