This post will lead you to the video I created for a school presentation.
Computer engineers solve a wide range of problems using computers; they design the microprocessors along with the hardware that goes in the computer and develop the software that controls the system. They also ensure computers communicate properly with one another. Computer engineers are equally at ease designing the hardware of systems powerful enough to execute complex tasks efficiently and developing the software to perform given tasks reliably.
Bluetooth Controlled Appliances is another Senior Year Design Project (Thesis) I’ve helped my friends built. Credits to Team Haagen-Dazs for allowing me to share it here.
This project aims to control typical home appliances like Curtain, Electric Fan and Light Bulb. A computer is used to control them and the device that serves as their bridge of communication is the bluetooth module specifically EGBT 9830 Bluetooth Module. The Graphical User Interface (GUI) is made from Visual Basic 6 using the serial port plugin which is mscomm. The program only transmits single characters for the microcontroller to read. The project uses Half-Duplex Communication. Continue reading →
