The world is getting more and more corporate and commercial sky scrapers are being scaled almost every day at or the other place. With this immense growth in the tertiary sector, the awareness of power efficiency has also caught the spotlight. Optimizing these commercial buildings in terms of electricity consumption is not less than a mission for the managers and fully fledged internal power management auditory departments are working in several multinationals.
Solving the purpose of power saving strategy is MSP 430 based office automation system which controls everything that works on electricity. The gadgets get ON when someone is inside the room and turn themselves OFF as soon as the room goes vacant. This automation system can be used to control something as simple as electricity and can control something as complicated as the workstation.
Apart from the MSP 430, this system takes in a couple of LDRs, direction pattern recognizers, a few sensors and wireless transmitters that come together to assemble this system. Interestingly, this whole system is quite power efficient and can be installed in large offices as well as small cubicles. Imagine what amount of energy saving can be done if such systems get installed on buildings like Taipei 101 or WTO HQs.
