dc.description A project report written by Okhaifo Pius Oikeh and Kagiko Chris Mukirae for Lab Project Work at USIU-A en_US
dc.description.abstract The Purpose of this project is to make a digital circuit that would generate a police siren while mimicking the pattern of the police lights using Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) in order to understand the digital circuitry used by the police for their police cars. This project can be taking further by applying it to home automation system with the use of sensors like smoke detector for generating siren that alert the owner about the existence of a problem. The objective of this project is to program the raspberry pi using python (a programming language) to interface with the other components of the circuit in other to output a siren noise and send signals to the lights in a pattern that resembles the police car lights. The project was carried out by assembling a speaker, a raspberry pi and eight LED’s on a breadboard using male-to-male wires; the LED’s and the speaker are connected to the raspberry pi which is coded to interface with the components and the program is executed to send outputs to the devices at certain time interfaces. Optionally a mobile application is used to automate the running of the code instead of constantly having to go back to the code to stop and start the python script from running. Though there were some setbacks (not getting the Integrated Circuit we required purchased in time before our project’s completion) the project was a success because a siren noise could be heard alongside the LED’s turning on and off like the police car light (police siren was made using digital circuitry). en_US
