We wanted to incorporate the various sensors that were available within the hardware lab and thought that this was a practical and interesting way.
What it does
It trips a buzzer and LEDs when the various sensors are activated.
How we built it
We used an FGPA board with Verilog and other various other sensors found in the hardware lab.
Challenges we ran into
The software that works with the boards is often faulty, some of the wires were frayed, there is very little documentation on both verilog and the sensors that we were trying to use.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to get the sensors to work individually.
What we learned
Various technicalities regarding verilog and interfacing with hardware.
What's next for Alarm System
We'll use it to protect a 3D printer in our school for our robotics club.
