In April, we started a series of posts which showcased some of the top semester projects for an electronics course from a class of Electrical Engineering students. To test the students and get some creative results, the constraint was that each project had to use a Bluetooth module that communicated with a smart phone application.

So far, we have had a look at a device that can make any speaker wireless, a wearable communication device and a car automation system. In this final entry of the series, we will look at another impressive and interesting project, named “Mution”. It lets the user control a music player on his/her phone with hand gestures.

Project name: “Mution”

Students: Ali Athar, Armaghan Ahmed Khan and Azlan Shaukat.

Continuing in our series of Bluetooth enabled semester projects; we look at another interesting one in this post. Adhering to the requirements of using a development board with a Bluetooth 4.0 chip (a.k.a, Bluetooth Low Energy or BLE) and an Android phone application, the project featured in this post is related to cars.

Before this, we first saw the wireless Bluetooth speakers, “Audink” and then the notification watch, “Notify-U”. Now we will have a look at “Car B-Lock”, a device that allows the user to interact with the locking system of their car via their Android smartphones.

Project name: Car B-Lock

Students: Mohammad Shahzeb Faisal, Asad Ali Malik and Abdul Moiz.

In a previous post, we started looking into some of the semester projects from the 5th semester electrical engineering students (Fall ‘14), for their subject “Electronic Circuit Design”. The requirement was that the students had to design and construct a device that utilized a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) chip and an Android phone application.
