Automated Rationing System

Automated Rationing system replaces the conventional ration card system by smart card. This replaces the manual work in public distribution system. The ration distribution system is automated by using RFID technology which is similar to the ATM. The user uses smart card to obtain the required materials from the system.The embedded controller is pre-programmed in such a way to perform the similar operation.

Magnetic Resonant Inductive Coupled Wireless Power Transmission

Wireless Electricity transmission is based on strong coupling between electromagnetic resonant objects to transfer energy wirelessly between them. This differs from other methods like simple induction microwaves or air ionization. The system consists of transmitters and receivers that contain magnetic loop antennas critically tuned to the same frequency. Due to operating in the electromagnetic near field, the receiving devices must be not more than about the quarter wavelength from the transmitter.

Automatic Railway Gate control using Microcontroller

This paper is about automatic railway gate at a level crossing replacing the gates operating by the gate keeper. It deals with two things firstly reduction of time for which the gate is being kept closed and secondly to provide safety to the road users by reducing the accidents. By employing the automatic railway gate control the arrival of the train is detected by the sensor placed near to the gate. Hence the time for which it is closed is less compared to manually operated gates and also reduces the human labour.
