Dogs are often left at home alone for periods of time when their owner needs to leave the house. This can cause a dog to become anxious or bored, which can then lead to the dog acting out and chewing on the furniture or causing some other damage throughout the house. We want to develop a device that will entertain the dog with minimal interaction from the owner. Our device will utilize movement and sound to attract a dog’s attention. The device will be able to navigate throughout the house by using IR sensors on the vehicle in order to avoid obstacles. Most devices currently on the market require a higher level of user interaction, which we are trying to avoid with our product. Furthermore, our product has a durable design that is built for the rougher playing style of a dog while still able to avoid obstacles autonomously and operate when dropped in any orientation.

Logic Circuit Teaching Board

The proposal our group has is of creating a board that will be able to teach students about logic circuits hands on. The project will consist of a board and different pieces that represent gates. The board will be used to plug in the pieces and provide power to the internal circuitry of the pieces. The pieces will have a gate and LEDs inside, which will be used to represent the logic at the different terminals.

By plugging in and combining gates, students will be able to see the actual effect on logic from the different combinations that they make. To add to it, we will add a truth table that can be used to represent inputs and outputs required, for example, for a class project or challenge. The board will be able to read the truth table and determine whether the logic the student has created is correct.

This board can act as a great learning source for students to understand the working of logic circuits. It can be helpful in teaching logic design to students in high schools who are interested in pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering.

Please comment on whether the project is good enough to be approved, and if there are any suggestions.
