The “Automatic Light Switch and Odor Repellant for SLSU Lucena Comfort Room” is the innovative way in spraying an odor repellant when the bad odor is being sensed by the sensor and operated using the programmable Arduino module. The direct beneficiaries of this research are the SLSU Lucena comfort room, as well as for people who takes interest much as the individuals who is concern about removing bad odor in the comfort room.
Likewise, this study provides a significant amount of information for the community to be more knowledgeable on Arduino technology. This research will help maintain the smell of the toilet through the use of improved technological method.
For Community, this study would be useful to the community especially to those who wants to eliminate the odor in their comfort room using this device.
For the students, this study may serve as a guide and reference in their research studies. Likewise, to be familiar with the Arduino programming platform, in addition to write programs that could be test their skills and knowledge in terms of technical aspects.
For the academe, this research will aid them their discussion regarding related lessons. It will be easier for them to tackle related topics about this research.
For the researchers, this will aid them develop and enhance their skills in terms of programming via Arduino. They can apply the learnings that they have acquired in the university.
For future researchers, most especially to computer students, who seek to improve and further develop a research same as in this study.
Scope and Limitation
This research is focused on structure and developing a device using PIR and air quality sensor and Arduino microcontroller.
PIR sensor controlled by Arduino microcontroller will be used to detect motions upon entering the comfort room to automate the switching of the light and air quality sensor as a triggering device for the prototype to automatically spray an odor repellent when it senses the unpleasant odor stench’s around the area.
The prototype was only limited in sensing the motion and air quality. The device only focuses on reducing the bad odor and automating the light of the university comfort room.
