Introduction: BiroHero-BUILT ON BOLT

Meet Birohero who will outwit the criminals. I always have a passion to work on IoT projects and I finally did it.

This project uses LDR which will output a low value when the thief is near the biro which indicates the presence of thief.

This project contains

1.Arduino uno

2.Ultrasonic sensor

3.Bolt iot platform.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Step 1: Setting Up Ultrasonic Sensor.

Write program for setting the ultrasonic sensor. I configured the sensor to detect the object within 100cm. I have attached my program for arduino.

Step 2: Step 2: Making the Connections As Per the Diagram.

Step 3: Step 3: Camera

Make use of any smartphone to outwit the thief. Install "IP webcam" app on playstore. Also intsall it on your pc. I attached a link which gives useful information on setting the smartphone cam.


Step 4: ​Step 4: Create Bolt Graph

Write a program to display line chart on bolt cloud. This will be easy when you have attended the bolt workshop.

Step 5:

Your smart biro is set to go. But this project has various constraints.

NOTE: In the video, I have said turning night vision mode helps. But camera remains dark after turning on night mode . I have done turning night lamp on without affecting the LDR data.
