Embedded systems are electronic devices that have a specific function in mind. They are an integral part of many industries, including healthcare, agriculture and transportation. In this blog post, is a breakdown of geniatech’s collection at some real life applications of embedded systems.
Systems for Rash Driving Detection
In this system, the main objective is to detect rash driving and send it to the control center for further action. The embedded systems here will be used as a part of the vehicle’s control system. This system can be implemented using different sensors like speed sensor, RPM sensor, and throttle position sensor. These sensors will be connected to the microcontroller which is programmed in order to detect rash driving. The microcontroller will then send signals through wireless communication module to the control center through GSM or Bluetooth module.
Systems for Street Light Control
In this system, embedded systems are used as a part of street light control unit which controls all street lights in an area or town. Embedded systems here can be programmed in such a way that it can control street lights by sending signals through wireless communication modules such as GSM or Bluetooth module. In addition to controlling street lights at night, embedded systems can also be programmed to turn on/off street lights during day time depending on weather conditions such as fog etc., so that they do not create any problems during driving, parking etc.,
Embedded System for Vehicle Tracking
Vehicle tracking devices are used to locate vehicles in real time using GPS technology and provide their current location information to authorized users over mobile phones, web sites etc. These devices come with an embedded processor, memory and other components needed for vehicle tracking applications such as GSM modems, antennas etc. They also have various sensors such as accelerometers, gyroscope etc which sense vehicle movements and send data to processors over USB ports or Bluetooth connections which are connected to PCs or laptops for further processing before sending them back
Home Automation Embedded Systems
In today’s world smart homes are becoming popular where all the appliances can be controlled from one place using a smartphone or computer. The main purpose of this home automation system is to make life easier for people so that they do not have to move around their house to control different devices. The device which controls all these appliances is known as an embedded system. This embedded system can be programmed to perform various tasks like controlling lights, temperature and other things according to our needs.
Systems for Auto Intensity Control
In an automobile, there is a system that controls the intensity of the headlights according to the intensity of light from the surroundings. This system is called auto intensity control (AIC). In this system, there are sensors that measure the intensity of light from surrounding objects and send their values to an embedded controller. Based on these values, the controller calculates the intensity required and sends it to a motor control unit (MCU). The MCU then controls the headlights accordingly.
Embedded systems are now essential in the modern world. Its applications in various sectors of the economy make it one of the fastest growing industries of today. You can find embedded systems in many devices like remote systems, medical devices, cars and so on. With this insight, technical engineers have an idea on what to improve and how to improve for the effectiveness of these applications using the embedded systems.
