Automatic flood detection and warning device a prototype

  1. 1. Automatic Flood Detection and Warning Device: A Prototype Liwagon, Eyrl Joeyjay D. Luceñara, Melissa L. Villaruz, Jandolf C.
  2. 2. OUTLINE  Background of the Study  Objectives of the Study  Significance of the Study  Scope and Limitations  Materials and Methods  Results and Discussions  Results of Evaluation  Results of Gathered Data  Conclusions and Recommendations
  3. 3. Background of the Study
  4. 4. Background of the Study  The Philippines has two seasons, wet and dry.  unexpected tropical storms occur.  A lot of casualties are left when the typhoons strike.
  5. 5. Objectives of the Study Improvise a circuit; Gather the materials and tools needed for the construction; Construct the improvised device;
  6. 6. Objectives of the Study Test the functionality of the device on the basis of water detection and alarm system.
  7. 7. Significance of the Study Help warn people of an incoming flood, especially at night Decrease the casualties and damage of properties
  8. 8. Scope and Limitations Limited to one pair of sensors For detection of flood electrical power source (1.5V batteries) Positioning or placing of the device depends on the area
  9. 9. Materials and Methods Materials Needed: 1 Megaphone 2 Resistors(10KΩ and 56 K Ω) 1 Integrated Circuit (555 timer) 3 Capacitors (two 0.01 µF and a 47µF) Wires (At least one meter) 6 1.5V batteries
  10. 10. Materials and Methods Schematic Diagram of the Circuit
  11. 11. Materials and methods Construction of the Device: Improvised a Circuit Gathering of the Device Materials Attaching the megaphone to the circuit Assembling of the Device
  12. 12. Materials and Methods Testing of the Device: Sensors are submerged in water The megaphone made the expected alerting sound
  13. 13. MATERIALS AND METHODS Operation of the Device: 1. Electrodes are immersed in water, simultaneou sly. 2. Circuit is triggered 3. Megaphone Wails
  14. 14. Materials and Methods Gathering of Data: Evaluation of the Device (Functionality, Efficiency, Safety, and Aesthetics) Calculation and Recording of Gathered Data
  15. 15. RESULTS OF EVALUATION I. Functionality and Efficiency  The device rings when in contact with water.  The device stops ringing when already away from water.  The electrodes are consistent in sensing water.  The device is user-friendly and easy to use. Average 5 4.93 4.79 4.93
  16. 16. RESULTS OF EVALUATION Safety  The device does not emit smoke, burning smell and/or spark while being used.  The device does not overheat easily.  There are no wires or internal components exposed in the enclosure.  The device does not, in any way, harm the user.  The components of the device do not blow up or short circuit. Average 4.90 4.72 4.66 4.86 4.9
  17. 17. RESULTS OF EVALUATION Aesthetics  The device is presentable and seems safe to use.  The device can attract possible buyers.  The device is properly enclosed. Average 4.52 4.21 4.52
  18. 18. Analysis OF GATHERED DATA Those who evaluated the device: Think it is efficient in alerting people in case of flood Think it is safe to use.
  19. 19. ANALYSIS OF GATHERED DATA The researchers are focusing on improving its appearance to achieve a higher rating and for it to attract more buyers.
  20. 20. the device fulfills the main objective of the study. It can efficiently alert people when there is a flood occurring. CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
  21. 21. CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS It is recommended: to use a larger siren for a larger range of homes to be alerted To use a 220-Volt source to incorporate the power-utilization property of emergency lights (in case of blackouts)
