Hello Fellow Programmers!
I am relatively new to the logistics of hardware and software and am desperately looking for advice!
I am enrolled in an engineering course at my school, and we all have a final project that we need to present
to judges. I am not looking for idea's for a project, but more advice and help on how to carry my project out.
My Idea is a device that would be able to detect when someone is not wearing a seatbelt. This seemed like a useful creation due to most states trying to crack down on seat belt neglectors. I am planning on just making a rather messy prototype with an arduino, and I think I know what I need to do, but not how to do it.
It will probably use some sort of pressure sensor in a seat to actually determine if someone is actually in the seat, where it will then use a logic gate to send out a signal if the pressure sensor is detecting an occupant and the seat belt (Or quite possibly a switch) is not activated. Then there will be a device that would tell you if the seat belt is off.
If anyone has any ideas to revise my plan, I am open to anything. I am really just looking for anyone who could help out with schematics and a code for this project. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
