Automatic Speed Breaker on Time Demand using Embedded Systems

Ajay S, Govind G, Dharmendhar S, Parthasarathy J Department of Electronics and Communication Panimalar Engineering College

AbstractThe concept of this research work is to have anautomatic speed breaker on time demand according to the requirements. Means when there is no need of the speed breaker on the road, it disappears from the road and the road becomes flat and when there is a need then the breaker comes on the road from ground and it starts its working of slowing speed of the vehicles. In implementation of this concept, we use an iron made hemi-cylindrical speed breaker which is capable of rotating itself using control circuitry of embedded systems. So when needed, it comes on the road by rotating itself from flat position and when not needed, it rotates itself again and gets flat and combines with flat road. In the system, real time clock is used to mention the required time for having the speed breaker on road. When time gets started, breaker comes on the road and remains until the countdown gets zero. In the Embedded systems clock any time and date can be stored on which the speed breaker is required on the road. So this type of speed breaker is useful before any building for which the time is specified for coming in the building and going out from it e.g. schools, any organization etc.Additionally we used a Wireless sensor network which provides a interface to monitor and controlmultiple humps at the same time. Further we used a internet of things (IOT ) for better capability of handling from remote areas. For the exceptional cases like emergency or for the Ambulance the RF is used. So that the RF will automatically disable the Speed braking system. When the RF receiver , receives high signal strength then the microcontroller will command the system to disable at that time.

  1. INTRODUCTION

    The concept of this research work is to have an automatic speed breaker on time demand according to the requirements

    Means when there is no need of the speed breaker on the road, it disappears from the road and the road becomes flat and when there is a need then the breaker comes on the road by rotating itself from its flat position and it starts its working of slowing speed of the vehicles. In implementation of this concept, we use an iron made hemi- cylindrical speed breaker which is capable of rotating itself using control circuitry of Embedded Systems. So when needed, it comes on the road and when not needed, it rotates itself again and gets flat and combines with flat road. In the system, real time clock is used to mention the required time for having the speed breaker on road. When time gets started, breaker comes on the road and remains until the countdown gets zero. This is because for best results when applying high speed auto-reclose to improve a system stability limit, it is important that the fault should be cleared as quickly as possible from both line ends. In the Embedded systems clock any time and date can be stored on which the speed breaker is required on the road. So this type

    of speed breaker is useful before any building for which the time is specified for coming in the building and going out from it e.g. schools, any organization etc. By using this idea, it is possible to adjust the time of speed breaker on road. We can use this innovative idea in front of any organization, which is on main road and the entry and exit times for that place are almost fix. When the entry time gets started then clock connected to the speed breaker automatically transfer the speed breaker on the road for a time period. After the specified time period, speed breaker gets automatically reverse to the flat position. Semi circle portion of speed breaker is turn automatically as per the time set.

    Time set option is changeable. We can set the time of open and close the speed breaker as per our choice. Changeable time is to be stored in the external memory up to next change. This memory is non-volatile and retain its data for a long time. Time is automatically adjusted by the RTC IC with a small battery backup to save the clock setting. Speed breaker is designed by a half semi circle shaped long metallic pipe. Two magnetic sensors are connected across the speed breaker to adjust the close and open point of the speed breaker. So this type of speed breaker is so much useful, important as well as required as of todays time period when everyone is chasing the life very fast and wants to have a speedy life to get goals as soon as possible.

  2. REVIEW OF THE RESEARCH WORK

    In the rapidly changing world, the speed has become an important factor in humans life. Everyone wants to get fast as much as possible. In the fast speed world, there are two perspectives, one is keeping speed and another is to maintain safety mediums as well. So keeping speed is quite easy for a person and in case of safety mediums, there must be a lot of attention. For safety purpose, preventing accidents on road, there is a conventional method of having concrete speed breakers on road. In case of conventional concrete speed breakers, they are found firm all the time on the road.

    These types of speed breakers are very useful on road but at the same time, these cause a great change in performance of the vehicles as well. The example diagram of such conventional concrete speed breaker is (Fig. 1). So why dont we have such speed breaker which can reduce the speed and maintain the performance of the vehicle. Thats why there is a need of an automatic breaker on time demand according to the requirements.

    Means when there is no need of the speed breaker on the road, it disappears from the road and the road becomes flat and when there is a need then the breaker comes on the road from ground and it starts its working of slowing speed of vehicles. The example diagram of such is as follows (Fig.2).

    With the help of switches we adjust the time period on/off for each channel separately.

  3. OBJECTIVES

    The presented study purpose is to achieve the following objectives-

    • To have the speed of vehicle reduced before the place specified; for some time interval.

    • Here the main purpose of the breaker is to make the speed of the vehicle reduced before any place or organisation specified for which it has been installed.

    • To keep the speed of vehicle unchanged when reduction in speed is not required.

    • When there is no need to reduce the speed of the vehicle, the speed of the vehicle should be kept unchanged by making the speed breaker disappeared from the road.

    • To have a greater mileage of vehicles in this time of increasing fuel rates speedily.

    mileage of vehicle positive, the speed should not be reduced or changed in this time when the fuel rates are increased at any time.

    • To make sure that one should pay attention before entering and exiting the organization or place specified by such types of speed breaker.

    This last; but not the least; objective is to make someone insured that he/she must pay attention before entering and exiting the place specified when the fixed time duration of the speed breaker is not in action by indicating some means as display.

  4. DEVICES& CIRCUITS

    Speed breaker is designed by a half flat and half semi circle shaped long metallic pipe. Two magnetic sensors are connected across the speed breaker to adjust the close and open point of the speed breaker The main block diagram of the research work is as follows (Fig. 3). In the diagram, all the devices and circuits required are shown. Main device of this research work is Arduino UNO. RTC PCF8563 is connected with the controller. We use 2×16

    L.C.D to provide a visual time delay and show the menu also. With the help of switches we adjust the time period of speed breaker. In this research work we provide a 4 channel output for speed breaker. We adjust the time of speed breaker for UP four channels. With the help of switches we adjust the time period on/off for each channel. Change data is store in the external memory.

    When the speed of the vehicle is reduced, the performance

    of the vehicle gets affected. So to keep the performance and

The device achieves throughput approaching 1 MIPS per MHz Slow speed motor base speed breaker is connected to the microcontroller via relay circuit (Fig. 6). The SCL is clockinput and is used to synchronize EEPROM with microcontroller for various operations. When data is to be read or write, first a start condition is created followed by device address, byte address and the data itself. Finally a stop condition is provided [5]. The start condition occurs when SDA and SCL get high to low simultaneously. The stop condition is when SDA remains low while SCL goes from high to low. The data is read or written between the start and stop conditions on every transition of SCL from high to low. For more details on different operations and addressing, refer interfacing 24c02 with 8051. A total of eight EEPROMs can be connectedthrough a bus.
