Embedded Systems Projects Topics


An Embedded system is widely used  technology now a days. Embedded system, as the word suggests, is an enclosed system as an integral part of surrounding whole. It is one of the most popular topic of interest among electronics engineers. Here is the list of most interesting Embedded System Project Topics.

What is an embedded system?

An embedded system is a computer system designed for performing one or two specific functions. The embedded system combines the electrical, chemical and mechanical components along with a computer concealed inside it to perform one or two dedicated application functions.
In technical terms, an embedded system is formed by combination of Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), Field Programmable Logic Arrays (FPGAs), Digital Signal Processors (DSPs) and Gate Arrays. Unlike General purpose Computers which perform a variety of tasks, these systems are designed to perform only few functions specified to it. These can be thought of software within a hardware.

Examples: Digital calculators, Digital watches, Wi- fi Routers, Projectors, Autometed Teller Machine(ATM) Machines, Mobile Phones, Coffee machines, Vending Machine, Microwave Oven, Refrigerators, Personal Computers, Tele – vision sets, set top box, Remote Controls, Radios, Washing Machines, Digital Alarm Clock, Electronic Toys, Music Players, Stabilizers, Traffic signals, Digital Camera, Camcorders, Car’s electronic parts and sensors, and many more…..

Why Embedded systems?

In this world of computers be at home, travelling or office we are  embedded systems surround us. Many engineering undergraduates show their interest in making an embedded system project in final year. For the reason that, there is a lot of scope for the embedded system engineering in upcoming future, students mostly prefer embedded system projects.

3.PIC based Green House Monitoring and Controlling System

PIC based Green House Monitoring and Controlling System

Green House gases are becoming a serious problem of the modern time. These gases are damaging the environment leading to Ozone Depletion and Global Warming. If these greenhouse gases levels keep on increasing the probability of environmental damage is increasing. A PIC Controller system  senses the Green House gas Levels in the atmosphere. The sensors such as temperature sensor, Humidity sensors, CO sensor, CFCs Sensor, Light Intensity sensor help the Micro controller to detect the excess levels of the green House Gases.

6. Arduino and GPS Based Over-speeding detector for vehicles to avoid accidents

Arduino and GPS Based Over-speeding detector for vehicles to avoid accidents

The Over-speeding detector is a device which   fixes on a vehicle to detect the vehicle speed to avoid accidents. Furthermore GPS system sends an alert to the vehicle as well as traffic control office. You can build this with our Arduino training program.

7.Cell Phone Controlled Fire Detecting Robot with sensors

Cell Phone Controlled Fire Detecting Robot with sensors

This system is based on DTMF. When an user presses a key on the cell phone , the robot cell phone tone is receives a DTMF tone . A micro controller detects this tone and then it sends signals to the output to activate the motors.It consists of UV light sensor and fire sensor along with an obstacle detector. You can build this with our IoT  training program.

8. Automatic Railway gate controller with high speed Alert

Automatic Railway gate controller with high speed Alert

It is important to control the railway gate opening and closing in order to avoid severe accidents at railway crossings. In an unmanned condition we have to make it an automatic system. This system detects the arrival of train and by detecting motion using a motion sensor. An embedded controller then turns on the alarm and closes the gate automatically. This requires interfacing with lots of sensors, network and a microcontroller, do checkout our Raspberry Pi training program.

9. Zigbee Based Remote monitoring of Temperature and Humidity using PIC

ZigBee Based Temperature and Humidity Sensor

Temperature and Humidity are the environmental conditions which affect human comfort. The aim of this project is to design a system for remote monitoring of temperature and relative humidity over ZigBee network. PIC controller communicates the ZigBee signals with temperature and humidity sensors. Want to build this? Choose our Zigbee training program.

10. Real time patient monitoring system based on ECG signals

Patient ECG monitoring

Cardiovascular diseases are one of the major cause of deaths in world. Likewise, the system is designed to continuously monitor the ECG signals of a person to detect any signs of cardiovascular disease condition. Finally, the cell phone puts the message and alert sound as soon as it detects any abnormality. You can build this if you combine both Arduino and Raspberry PI.
