Sensor Network Projects for Engineering

Wireless sensor network projects include wireless sensor networks applications such as wireless SCADA, Zigbee home automation, transformer health monitoring system and so on.

Wireless Network Based Wireless SCADA

It is not possible to achieve manual control over multiple continuous processes going on in industries.  The proposed system is designed to achieve and control the multiple processes in large scale industries remotely by supervision. The SCADA is one of the great technologies in basic electronics projects which is used to monitor the remote area without human interference. In this project, using four temperature sensors formed as wireless sensor networks projects, which are located in various places. If sensor temperature increases at the set point of the GUI, then the relay is made to switch ON and OFF the heater (a lamp load) to maintain the set temperature. In a SCADA system different types of sensors can be used for multiple control systems

XBEE Based Remote Monitoring of three Parameters on Transformer / Generator Health

This is a simple mini project for ece students that is designed to protect the transformer by monitoring the parameters of a generator/ transformer such as current, voltage and temperature through the sensing devices like current transformer, temperature sensor and potential transformer, respectively; and, to monitor them from a remote location using Zigbee wireless communication. Three sensors are fixed at the transmitter end to form a wireless sensor networks projects with a certain range of each parameter. If these parameters exceed at the fixed limits, then the transmitter sends a signal to the receiving end by the XBEE transceiver. To switch a warning load using a relay and alerts the user through a voice module.

XBEE Based Remote Monitoring of 3 Parameters on Transformer / Generator Health

This system is used to obtain the parameters like voltage, current, temperature of a distribution transformer through the measuring devices or sensors network such as temperature sensor, potential and current transformers to transfer those values to a remote location through Zigbee wireless technology. This is a wireless sensor networks project where the sensor network is fixed at the transmitter end with a certain range of each parameter. If these parameters exceed the fixed limits, then the transmitter sends a signal to the receiving end using the XBEE transceiver. To switch the load by the relay and displays the message on the LCD.

Medical Applications Based on Wireless Sensor Networks

Nowadays, the health care system is highly complex. The proposed system is designed to provide ultimate solutions to the healthcare using the wireless sensor networks. This proposed system is used to monitor the patient’s health by wirelessly using RF technology. It is a very tedious method. In this proposed system transmitting module continuously reads patient’s body temperature through a digital temperature sensor, displays it on the LCD screen and sends it to the microcontroller which transmits the encoded serial data over the air by RF (radio frequency) through an RF module.

Mobile and Wireless Sensor Network based application to create a farm field monitoring and plant protection for sustainable crop production and poverty reduction

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) emerged from advancements in the areas of micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) technology, wireless communication, and digital electronics. WSNs devices are small in size, low cost, and require low power to work. The basic structure of WSN sensor nodes as identified is  Shown in fig

There are four main components that make up a sensor node. The parts are mainly a sensing unit, a processing unit, a transmission unit and a power unit. Depending on the type of application, A sensor node may have additional parts such as a situation, finding system, mobilizer and a power generator. The Sensing unit usually takes the burden of sensing and gathering sensor data and then passes data to the processing unit. The processing unit receives the sensed data and processes it according to the Master of these projects. A transmission unit connects the sensor not with a network. The power unit supplies power required to run a sensor node.
