Transcript of The Smart Classroom

Smart Classroom
Senior Design Project

Arduino 1
Arduino 2
-Light Dependent Resistor (LDR)
-Student Computer
Arduino 3
-Door Counter(Laser pointers + LDR)
-RFID reader module
-PIR Motion Sensor
The Value
-We believe the smart classroom can be classified as a high value project not only for an institution but for the entire education industry.
-An institution will be then categorized as a "smart environment".
-We classify the smart classroom as in "incremental innovation".
Arduino - The Microcontroller
An open source prototyping platform using hardware and software. With the help of an Arduino, we were able to make interactive devices compatible with each other that helped us create a smart classroom. The Arduino acts like a bridge between multiple devices and a programmer.
Final Design
The concept of a "Smart Classroom" will revolutionize the idea of learning. With the help of sensors, actuators and communication systems, we wish to make a learning environment extremely efficient.

Mission Statement:- Our mission is to create a classroom that reduces time wasted during a normal class session and incresease energy efficiency.
Problem Statement
Issues that decrease overall efficiency:
- Class time wasted as students and professors wait for their computers and projectors to load.
-Electricity is constantly wasted as computers are always on standby mode. In addition, lights are kept on even when they are not needed.

Related Work
The MavHome (University of Texas)
-Students automate a home system with the use light sensors, motion sensor & temperature records.
-Sensors were able to read and record the humidity, temperature & motion within a house.
Proposed Solution
So what is our solution?
-RFID to distinguish between student or professor.
-LDR & Laser to keep a count of people entering and exiting the class.
-Servo Motors to control the blinds.
-Automated computers & projectors that switch on/off as soon as a person enters/leaves the class.
-All lights are controlled.
Server & Applications
How does it all work:
-Multiple components are connected to an arduino micro-controller.
-The arduinos are connected to the main server through Ethernet cables & powered through AC Adapters.
-A router communicates to these devices through the server application/UDP.

-Ethernet enabled Arduino
-Light Sensors
-Motion Sensors
-Servo Motor
-IR Transmitters
With Dr. Hicham Elzabadani,

Ahmad Al Tayer, Farhodi Nurmohammedzoda, Kerelos Youssef & Yash Shah

Thank You.

A smart environment is the near future for all working environments. As senior students we feel that this project will bring efficiency, user-friendliness & most of all enhancement to the academic life of professors as well as for students.
Difficulties Faced
-Delivery Times
-Budget - AED 1,500
-Hardware Breakdowns
-Arduino + Shields
-IR T/R to LDR + Laser
-Software Bugs

Future Works
-Enhance existing systems to cater to all students.
-Remote mechanisms for administration to control the lighting across the facility.
-Mobile applications for enhanced user-friendliness.
We greatly acknowledge our supervisor Dr. Hicham Elzabadani for his constant support and motivation and AUD for their invaluable resources.

Use Case 1.0
Test Cases
