Camping is a such a great experience but it exposes people to extreme conditions coupled with insecurity that are sometimes not anticipated.

“Borders” is a project that looks into providing campers an extra layer of security that can be monitored individually.

Inorder to achieve this, i tested this hypothesis using an Arduino board, an ultrasonic motion sensor to detect interceptions at stipulated borders established by campers which trigger a warning when motion is detected. (a servo motor rotates in our case). As a response to the motion that was previously detected, a Light Dependent sensor is used to trigger a warning (by rotating the second micro servo motor) to scare away any intruders.

Further research in this case would be to investigate how to further explore the light sensors to automatically trigger a response without having to rely a person turning on the lights to get this response.

“Borders” is a project of IAAC, Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia developed at Masters in Advanced Architecture in 2021/2022 by: Student: Jeremiah G. Oonyu Faculty: Bernat Morato, faculty assistant: Daniil Koshelyul.
