Lab – Imagine a new intelligent sensor Answers Lab – Imagine a new intelligent sensor Answers


Imagine devices that are currently inanimate objects that could be useful if sensors were added to them.

Background / Scenario

Many devices have sensors in them that affect the operation of processes or generate data to assist governments and businesses. Use your imagination to think of devices that could be made more useful if they contained intelligent sensors.

Required Resources

Step 1: Think about your day in your home, school, or office. Are there any objects that you think could provide useful information to you or to others if they were equipped with sensors? As an example, if the toilet roll holder in your home had sensors to detect weight, it could turn red and beep when it needed a new roll.

a) Describe the object that you selected.
The object selected was SBS Re band (Step by step reminder band) the main unit size was 4.1cm * 12* 1.9 cm length*height*The width Bracelet material was ABS main body cover PC strap TPU with black color the most important was the battery capacity 80mh and it was lithium polymer battery. Finally the display screen was 0.96 HD IPS color screen ETE process single point touch button.

b) What kind of data would sensors in this object gather?
1. Level sensors
2. IR sensors
3. Proximity sensor.

c) How could the gathered data be useful and to whom would it be useful?
This object can gather some important things in our daily life. The main function was this SBS Re band having step calculation without any wireless connect to ur mobile.it also hy heath sensors example bloo pleasure heartbeat checking an all.the auto set of this band was it will always reminds u in every 100 step of vours when u go to your office or going back to home example like this, the reminder will be by vibration because nowadays we all ignore the reminder sound so we just prepare to make the vibration to work to 20 second for per 100 step.so people can set the important things that they bring to office and bring back to home as a reminder. It will be helpful for people who always forget their wallet.name tag, important files, laptops and many more and also will be easy to bring back all the things we always use in both places.

Other examples:

a) Describe the object that you selected.
Window model in which its crystals take different polarizations depending on the intensity of light that desired in the room, determined by measurements from different brightness sensors implemented in it, which will provide data for the different actuators to allow or control the polarization of the window glass.

b) What kind of data would sensors in this object gather?
The types of data to collect for this object are luminosity data, which, with their respective conditioning, they will be represented by voltage values. These corresponding measurements supplied by said sensors, will be constantly monitoring the luminosity that is presented in the closed space.

c) How could the gathered data be useful and to whom would it be useful?
The management and utility of the data collected by the sensors would be very useful for large companies that clearly require workplaces, such as: Smart greenhouses and factories or places that require controlled light for their different processes or obtaining products.

The handling of the same, will be treated with a respective conditioning as mentioned previously, which will determine according to the voltage value, the action of the controller that allows to handle polarization intensity in each of the crystals to obtain the desired light.
