INDUSTRIAL APPLIANCES CONTROL USING TV REMOTE
In this project we are going to develop an embedded system, which will control all the industrial devices with commands from a Remote device through IR.
The IR light is invisible light about 950 nm wavelength. One biggest problem in using IR light is that there many other sources of it like sun, light bulbs, fire. In order to exclude other sources, IR signal is modulated by some frequency. Receiver has to be tuned for this frequency. Mostly remote controls transmit IR signal using 36 kHz frequency signals. Transmitting and coding is one part which can be done more easily than receiving and decoding. Decoding is usually performed by using microcontrollers. First of all receivers has to get rid of 36 kHz carrier frequency. This is not simple task to demodulate signal, this is why special IR receiver IC’s are produced. This receiver simply removes 36 KHz carrier signal and gives clean pulses that are used for device control.
The system uses a compact circuitry built around 8051 microcontroller Programs are developed in Embedded C. Flash magic is used for loading programs into Microcontroller.
