This report is about an Information Display Console (IDC) project that is to be used by
each lecturer in Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP). The purpose of this IDC is to
give information to students or lecturers while the particular lecturer is away and to
enhance the professionalism in communication among lecturers and students.
The system consists of two parts. Firstly is the transmitter which is connected to a
computer via parallel port. Second part is the receiver to which a Liquid Crystal Display
(LCD) is attached. The system uses the infrared communication in transmitting data that
need to be updated. The data will be stored in a memory and will be displayed
continuously. The users can use a computer with its user interface to update the new
data. The development of the project involves designing and implementing the
hardware and the software. In the hardware part, it discusses the circuit design including
the calculation. In the software part, it discusses the process of developing the graphical
user interface (GUI), which is to be used in the system. The discussion on testing and
debugging the system are also included.
The system is a pioneer system in UTP since it uses new design in hardware and
software development. With this successful prototype development, it is envisioned that
lectures can enhance their professionalism in communication. Perhaps the system could
be deployed in UTP widely.
