Abstract
In the present scenario the world is moving towards automated systems. To design a hardware which is able to interact via internet is a challenging task in design of any automation system. A new term known as ’Internet of things’ also faces the same kind challenge, of interfacing a dumb electronic terminal with the internet. As we know that Ethernet is the most preferred serial bus, and can be utilized for high speed data transmission system. In this paper a new kind of design is proposed which support’s bi-directional data transmission. This approach require very low cost hardware units including 8 bit RISC processors, Ethernet controller, Ethernet adaptor, sensor’s and actuating device like webcam or may be a motor, based on the type of application. The processor to be used can be AVR or PIC depending upon the availability. The main advantage of this design is that it does not require any pre- defined operating platform like Linux or Python. This design is able to receive and transmit data, and is able to respond accordingly. Automatic IP detection is a major advantage of this design. This design enables a user to communicate with the hardware via any web browser, Telnet, C- based client, or any other Java based client. There can be various applications of this kind of system specially related with automation and surveillance system. The investigated and developed design in this paper is based on home automation and Security system. Main advantage of this system is to interact and control all system or devices with Infrared signals (IR).
