Help in Finding it (HiFi)
Completion Time: 6-months
Industry Sector: Computer and electronics
Project Type: Commercial
Help in Finding it (HiFi) is a device that will target every family living on earth as it is going to provide a service for them will keep their minds in peace and save tons of time. It happens that we as humans forget about many things, dates, exams, assignments, quizzes, wallets, mobile phones, TV controller and many other appliances of daily usage. We could not do anything for making the people remember their assignments or important dates they have as it would be useful to save them on the phone calendar. But when it comes to the cell phone itself or the wallet, it happens that we forgot where did we put it. and then we start looking for the phone let us say for couple of minutes that will end up being in road congestion or miss the daily bus to reach the work or university. Help me is a smart system that will manage to decrease this delay time dramatically by having a smart control device that will allow you to call your wallet, cell phone or even the TV controller as long as it is inside the home. We could call the phone directly but sometimes we put our phones on silent mode or their batteries run flat. On the other side of the system there is a receiver that will receive the control device signal and start beeping which will allow us to locate the location of the lost item faster. This idea will require a micro-controller that can receive special characters that will be sent by each click done by the consumer, and transmit it wirelessly, through the Wi-Fi connection running in the home, or at any other needed place. These receiving devices should have the ability to stay charged for a long time and able to stick on the items that have the potential to get lost. In this project there will always be potential for flexibility and development as Brail codes can be used on the device to suit people with disabilities, beep in different frequencies to suit elder people and may other things would lay in playing with colors and numbers to cover the most items that we need to know its location quickly.
People often lose or misplace their important gadgets, wallet or other critically important stuff in their surroundings but feel helpless to find it at time of urgency. HiFi offers the solution for this critically important issue of everyone’s life. This idea will require a micro-controller that can receive special characters that will be sent by each click done by the consumer, and transmit it wirelessly, through the Wi-Fi connection running in the home, or at any other needed place. These receiving devices should have the ability to stay charged for a long time and able to stick on the items that have the potential to get lost.
Any person possessing anything that’s considered to be an important or valuable stuff. In this project there will always be potential for flexibility and development, e.g. adding Brail codes to the device to suit people with disabilities and adding beep function in different frequencies to suit elderly people.
