What is a Breathalyzer?
A breathalyzer or breathalyser (a portmanteau of breath and analyzer/analyser) is a device for estimating blood alcohol content (BAC) from a breath sample.Breathalyzer is the brand name for the instrument that tests the alcohol level developed by inventor Robert Frank Borkenstein.
What is SENSE ?
A few months ago our Chemistry Teacher had informed all the Students of my class about an Inter-School Chemistry Model Making Competition. She then asked who all were interested in taking part in the Competition , the first thing I did was seeing if any of my classmates raised their hands my friend Chaitanya who is also a Full Stack Developer had raised his hand, so I too raised my hand because I had to badly Quench my Thirst for "Making an electronics projects" by building an innovative Chemistry Model.
About the Device :
Sense is made up of the MediaTek LinkIt One at Heart. It is connected to a 16*2 RGB LCD Display ( The RGB LCD Display Serves a good purpose ) , the main component is the Grove Alcohol Sensor and also a peizo buzzer to interpret the hike in Alcohol Vapor Levels.
What makes SENSE "SMART" ?
Sense uses on a simple algorithm that converts the Raw Sensor data into percentage for accurate measurement of the alcohol level in the surrounding environment.
Sense had a unique design which makes it and Open Environment Data Collector.
Sense can also be hooked up with a Bluetooth Shield ( 1Sheeld ) and can log data when Hike in Alcohol level is detected!
Sense won the 1st Place in the Chemistry Model Making Competition Organised by the St Aloysius College Department of Chemistry and PG Studies in Chemistry which was Sponsored by the
Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science & Technology Government of India.
Have fun Building Sense!
Step 1: Hardware Setup!
Materials Required :
Materials Required :
MediaTek LinkIt ONE Board [Buy Here]
Grove Alcohol Sensor [Buy Here]
Grove RGB LCD Backlight [Buy Here]
Grove 4 Pin AWG Wires [Buy Here]
Grove Buzzer [Buy Here]
Grove Base Shield [Buy Here]
Handy Note :
Alcohol ( Ethyl Alcohol ) is used in deodorants because they Vaporize immediately when the come out of the Pressurized Container and they carry the perfume along with them when sprayed.
Setting Up Hardware Parts :
Sense Box 3D Design :
Step 2: Three Step Hardware Setup!
Step 3: Software Setup!
Once you have completed the Setup , you can launch the IDE and make sure you are connected to the Proper COM Port.
Step 4 : Results & The Team!
Since we started building this Project Couple of Months ago deep down inside our heart we wanted to Open Source this Project , now we are happy to share this project with the World.
Our Achievements :
I represented my School ( Little Rock Indian School ) along with my Partner in the Inter School Chemistry Model Making Competition , We were able to Impress the Judges who decided to give us the 1st Place.
Our School also won the Overall Championship in the Chemistry Competition.
Now it's your turn to HACK Sense and make it better! #KeepMaking!
