    Bachelors Project:

    The primary aim of this project was to design a Hybrid integrated intelligent security surveillancesystem. I was involved in analysing the system requirement and to propose an electrical system with various sensors integrated in a single component. During the project I acquired knowledge of various electronic components such as loads, sensors such as fire, intruder, metal and also working principle of frequency jamming system. Frequency jammers were implemented in the system to prevent a bomb from exploding thereby jamming the detonation signals. Hence real time solutions for security systems were proposed with the help of this project.
