Infrared technologies involve in many ways in our life today including industrial,
electrical and electronics systems, health and many more. The use of infrared sensor,
which is beneficial to detect the movement ofan object, is implemented in this project.
The main objective of this project is intended to develop the application of Infra-Red
Sensors in a mouse trap design. This electronic project is proposed to introduce a new
method to catch the mouse. "Smart Mouse Trap" consists of infrared sensor, weight
sensor, motor speed controller and flat belt conveyor into a system. The system is capable
to perform a smooth integration between all these sub-systems. Two main stages were
involved in accomplishing the project. The first stage was identification and designation
of the components of Smart Mouse Trap system. Research, several discussion and
literature review were performed in order to progress with the project. The most common
used tools were Microsoft Eval 7.1 and Microsoft Visio. The second stage of the project
was to establish the real model ofSmart Mouse Trap, which consists oftroubleshooting,
evaluating, result testing and refining areas of weaknesses. In this stage, most of
hardware tools had been used. Focus also given to the preparation of the project report
itself. At the end, the prototype construction ofa Smart Mouse Trap by implementation
of infrared as its interfaces has accomplished within the allocated time. The features,
advantages and benefit of the design were identified and the recommendation for the
future expansion also suggested.
