Wireless Intruder Detection System

Hello everyone, This is an informal project done with help of Arun Prasad and Sreejith Sir. The project aims at detecting an intruder in a secured environment. For these we use PIR ( Passive infra-red Sensors ) and Independent Xbees. Independent nodes were used. Custom PCB designs were made to sustain an Xbee module, PIR […]

2 way (Peer-to-Peer) chat system using Xbee

Hello everyone! Today I will write about a small chat client which I had made using Xbees. It is a peer-to-peer based chat system. Here I describe using only two nodes, but later in the post, I shall explain on how to develop chat system with more than 2 nodes. Firstly for a simple 2 […]

Using Xbee and Configuring XCTU

Hello everyone, In continuation from my earlier post, I will try to explain how to use XCTU with and without Arduino Boards. Using XCTU without Arduino boards mean that the user wont be flexible to add code to the Xbee. The users wont be able to process data and then send it across the network. […]

Simple Wireless Sensor Network for Temperature Sensing

Hello everyone! This is one small project which I had done with Abhinav Gupta some months back. In this experiment, I graduate from using simple RF communication to Xbee! 😀 Whoa! 🙂 Ok, so here is the basic problem statement. I need to develop a temperature sensing system such that the temperature from the sensor […]

OpenCV for Shape Detection with RF Communication

Hey, This was one of the first projects I ever did in BITS Goa. It’s not documented well, but it was truly a life changing experience for me. I got introduced to many concepts of C, OpenCV, Electronics Micro controllers like Arduino , RF interfacing, etc. This project sure formed a good base of what […]

Hello World

Hello everyone, Finally decided to get a blog for me! So here it is! Jay Rambhia (@jayrambhia ) and Abhinav Gupta (@megupsta ) are my constant sources of inspiration! First of all, you will probably only want to follow this blog if you are either: – a technology fan – is interested in electronics or […]
