SECURITY: What’s Gone Wrong With Cybersecurity And How To Protect Ourselves
In today’s world, where technology is deeply ingrained in our daily lives, system security has become an increasingly crucial aspect of our digital existence. System security is the practice of protecting computer systems and networks from unauthorised access, theft, damage, or misuse. Let us try to understand these threats and see how we can deal with them
CIRCUIT IDEA: A Simple Automatic Bathroom Light
An automatic bathroom light can be made in several ways, depending on your preference and budget. Some of the options make use of either a motion sensor, a smart switch, an occupancy sensor, or a photo sensor. The simple system proposed here makes use of a small magnet fixed in the bathroom door’s frame and a reed switch with normally open contacts as the sensor on the bathroom’s door, just opposite the magnet. So, whenever you open the door, the reed switch will move away from the magnet
Analogue to digital converter (ADC) and digital to analogue converter (DAC) are integral parts of data processing and widely used industrial and household electronic devices. Different conversion methods include resistor ladder, binary weightage, and cascaded op-amp
PROJECT: Intruder Detection And Image Storage Using Pi Camera And Firebase
The proposed project is a Raspberry Pi based security system that uses a passive infrared (PIR) sensor to detect motion and a Pi camera to take pictures. The images obtained are stored in Firebase, which is a Google’s mobile platform that helps you quickly develop high-quality apps
PROJECT: Wireless Health And Security Monitor That Does Not Breach Privacy
Some patients and the elderly require continuous monitoring, but it cannot be done through CCTV cameras in their bathroom or even bedroom as it affects their privacy. The same applies to prisoners and some other cases. This project would help you design a device that lets you monitor the person’s health data like respiration and the activity being done, such as sleeping, walking, reading, moving, whether persent or running away, without the use of a camera
PROJECT: Touchless Water Dispenser For Washing Hands
Lots of water is wasted due to its improper use for washing hands, which is required frequently during pandemics like Covid-19. This adds up to a considerable amount in public places like hospitals, airports, railway stations, hotels, and restaurants
PROJECT: Real-Time Digital Clock
A real-time digital clock (RTC) is often required in projects and designs where we need to deal with time. RTC helps in keeping track of time even when the main processor is asleep or switched off. It is because of RTC that your PC/laptop clock keeps showing the correct time even after it has been switched off for some time, or even when the computer’s battery is removed for replacement with a new one. RTC module has its own small coin cell that runs for years and helps keep track of time when the whole circuit is powered off
