Laser Shooting Range

A shooting range made of transducers that pick up the normal intensity of LASER beams coming out of a normal source. The shooting range should provide the user with a LASER gun, which the user will point towards specific targets. There should be at least 4 targets, and all of them should be switching randomly from one to another after a fixed time period. The person gets a point if he points accurately towards the target that is currently switched on.

Water Tank Control Mechanism

A water-tank fill-up and overflow control mechanism with alarm. A circuit needs to be designed that displays the present level of water in the tank. The circuit also opens an outlet valve when the level in the tank exceeds a particular level, and finally opens the inlet valve when the water in the tank falls below a particular level.

Environment Control

Control of domestic electrical appliances (e.g. lights, fan) through the PSTN land line system using the DTMF chip. A circuit is required that would act like a bridge between the electrical appliance in the house and the land-line telephone set. The user should be able to remotely switch on or off appliances in his house by dialing his home telephone number, entering a password and then selecting the device to be turned on or off.

A state-machine based digital combination lock circuit which transitions from one state to the next at the clap of hands, not on the clock. The circuit should be intelligent enough not to trigger at other sounds. The decision must be taken after the entire code has been entered. The lock must have at least 10,000 possible combinations. (i.e. a total maximum of  8 claps which may or may not have pauses in between)

A pulse generator/monitor circuit

A generator circuit is required that generates pulses of varying duty cycle (all with a 1-sec period) depending on user selection. The transition from one type of pulse to the next must always occur at the 1-sec boundary. A detector circuit should be able to successfully detect all pulses with a period less than 1 sec (i.e. all valid pulses) as well as pulses with a period greater than 1 sec (all invalid pulses).

Keypad Number Guessing Game

A reference number (between 1 and 30) is fed to the circuit beforehand. The user guesses the stored number by typing it onto the keypad. A display shows whether the entered number is > = or < then stored number. The user has 5 tries to guess the number.If the above Projects still don’t match your expectations, you can find out more projects by searching for them on Google.
