and Importance of the Project
The main purpose of this
project is to design and build a car alarm that, when installed, will prevent
the car from being broken into and ultimately stolen.
It is not our goal to market and manufacture this product for commercial
use. It is purely for us to learn
about anti-theft devices and gain experience with hardware design for a
practical application, micro-controller programming and wireless communication.
alarm will not actually be installed in a car because there is not one available
for us to alter its circuitry. The
relays that would be required to activate all of the necessary components such
as horn, headlights and hazard lights will be in the circuit and a write up on
how to install the circuit into a car will be included.
circuit is a prototype and will be larger than an actual implementation, which
would require a printed circuit board.
