anti bike theft project is a system attached to the bike ignition system. In order to start the
ignition system, user has to enter his strong password. Only when the right password is entered
does the ignition system start. Well the owner may now park his bike as intended and lock it. If
a thief tries to break the key lock he still cannot start engine ignition without entering the right
password. The system now prompts user to enter the password, if he enters the wrong
password the system sends signals through Rf sender circuit connected to it and alert the
owner. The system then sounds a buzzer to alert passersby or security personnel nearby. The
alarm stops as soon as user enters the right password.

of an IR sensor that measures the level of trash in the dustbin. Based on the level of trash in the
bin, the Trash Level Indicator attached to the dustbin will light up. If the amount of trash in
the dustbin is low then the green light will be on and for medium the yellow light will be on
and red color indicates that the trash is full and requires to be cleaned.

39. Underground Cable Fault Distance Locator
This project is intended to detect the location of fault in underground cable lines. It is actually
not feasible to keep a check on the fault of the cables. This project gives a digital way to detect
the fault location, i.e. the distance of the fault from the feeder end, so that it is easy to rectify
that fault. This uses the fact that when any fault like a short circuit occurs, the voltage drop
varies as the resistance between that distance changes since the current varies. A set of resistors
are therefore used to represent the cable and a dc voltage is fed at one end and the fault is
detected by detecting the change in voltage using a analog to voltage converter and a

VAYU Technologies ARCS Solutions 8143581536, 9676165532, 8522923481, 8500781047

microcontroller is used to make the necessary calculations so that the fault distance is displayed
on the LCD display.
