Touchless Washing Hands Timer

Introduction: Touchless Washing Hands Timer

About: Electronic is my passion. I like to work with programming devices like Arduino, ESP8266, Raspberry Pi. I enjoy design electronic projects. IG: lab_torord.

I have created this project to count the minimum time recommended by the health authorities that we should wash our hands.

This project works in the following way:


You should close your hand at least 5 cm to the sensor. The device makes a sound and starts the count. After 20 seconds, the device makes 3 sounds and wait for the activation again.

Supplies

Step 1: Make the Connections

Make the connections shown in the schematic.

Step 2: Upload the Code to the Arduino

// Touchless washing hands timer

// Info library NewPing https://playground.arduino.cc/Code/NewPing/

#include // Library for sensor HC-SR04

const int trigger = 2; // D2 trigger Pin

const int echo = 3; // D3 echo Pin

const int max_dist = 200; // max distance 200 cm

const int led = 13; // Build-in led

const int sonido = 12; // Buzzer pin

//D9 to pin 12 latch (RCLK) 74HC595

const int latchPin = 9;

//D10 to Pin 11 Clock (SRCLK) 74HC595

const int clockPin = 10;

//D8 to Pin 14 Data (SER) 74HC595

const int dataPin = 8;

const int tdigt1 = 4; // Transistor digit 1

const int tdigt2 = 5; // Transistor digit 2

//7Segment display configuration

const byte CHAR_COUNT = 11;

const byte symbols[CHAR_COUNT] = {

//GFEDCBAd

B00001100, // 1

B10110110, // 2

};

int dist = 0; // Distance variable

int var = 20; // Time varible. You can change this value.

int digt1 = 0; // Var digit 1

int digt2 = 0; // Var digit 2

NewPing sonar(trigger, echo, max_dist); // NewPing constructor

void setup() {

Serial.begin(9600); // Set serial communication speed

pinMode(led, OUTPUT); // Led pin as output

pinMode(sonido, OUTPUT); // Sound pin as output

pinMode(latchPin, OUTPUT); // lachtPin as output

pinMode(dataPin, OUTPUT); // dataPin as output

pinMode(clockPin, OUTPUT); // clockPin as output

pinMode(tdigt1, OUTPUT); // tdigit1 as output

pinMode(tdigt2, OUTPUT); // tdigit2 as output

}

void loop() {

delay(50);

dist = sonar.ping_cm(); // Get the distance.

Serial.print(dist); // Print distance in serial monitor.

Serial.println("cm");

delay(500);

// Start this cycle if the distance is less than 5 cm

if ((dist <= 5) & (dist > 0)) {

digitalWrite(led, HIGH);

beep(200); // Make a sound

while (var > 0){ // While cycle for counter

digt1 = var % 10; // Get the remainder

digt2 = var / 10; // Get first digit

for (int i=0; i<50; i++) { // Show every digit 10 ms.

digitalWrite(tdigt1, HIGH);

writeLeds(symbols[digt1]); // Write symbols in the displays.

delay(10);

digitalWrite(tdigt1, LOW);

digitalWrite(tdigt2, HIGH);

writeLeds(symbols[digt2]);

delay(10);

digitalWrite(tdigt2, LOW);

}

var--;

}

var = 20;

beep(200);

beep(200);

beep(200);

} //If the sensor is not active.

else {

digitalWrite(led, LOW);

digitalWrite(tdigt1, HIGH);

writeLeds(symbols[10]);

digitalWrite(tdigt2, HIGH);

writeLeds(symbols[10]);

}

}

// beep function.

void beep(unsigned char delayms){

analogWrite(sonido, 200);

delay(delayms);

analogWrite(sonido, 0);

delay(delayms);

}

//writeleds function. Info https://www.arduino.cc/reference/en/language/func...

void writeLeds(byte pattern) {

digitalWrite(latchPin, LOW);

shiftOut(dataPin, clockPin, MSBFIRST, pattern);

digitalWrite(latchPin, HIGH);

}

Step 3: Test It and Wash Your Hands.
