Distance & Light Intensity Smart Lamp = Distancia e intensidad de luz de lampara inteligente

Engerst Yedra Álvarez




This work proposes an electronic system which, adapted to a LED lamp, optimizes the use of electrical energy, improves lighting comfort, etc. All this is possible with the programming of an Ultrasonic Distance Sensor (#28015) through an Arduino Nano Rev. 3. This Arduino, connected to actuators, regulates the intensity of the light depending on the distance between the lamp and the work area. In case an object or a human being approaches or moves away from the lamp, the luminous intensity will increase or decrease in relation to the previously established parameters. In order to achieve this objective, the installation of a breadboard of the proposed system is carried out for its subsequent testing and simulation. Several open source software are also used, such as: Arduino, Fritzing, Inkspace, etc. The Arduino is used to program the brain of the operation, that is, the microcontroller in the arduino platform; Fritzing for the digital assembly in breadboard, its schematic and the PCB (Print Circuit Board), all this of the proposed circuit; and Inkspace for the creation of the components that are not available in the Fritzing. This project combines three technologies, which combined, result in a Distance & Light Intensity Smart Lamp.


En este trabajo se propone un sistema electrónico que adaptado a una lámpara LED se obtiene la optimización del uso de la energía eléctrica, la mejora del confort lumínico, etc. Todo esto es posible con la programación de un Sensor Ultrasónico de Distancia (#28015) mediante un Arduino Nano Rev. 3. Este último conectado a actuadores regula la intensidad de la luz en dependencia de la distancia entre la lámpara y el plano de trabajo. En caso de que un objeto y/o ser humano se acerque o aleje de la lámpara, la intensidad lumínica aumentara o disminuirá en con relación a los parámetros previamente establecidos. Para lograr este objetivo se realiza el montaje en un breadboard del sistema propuesto, para su posterior prueba y simulación. Se utilizan además varios softwares, todos open source, tales como: Arduino, Fritzing, Inkspace, etc. El Arduino es utilizado para programar el cerebro de la operación, es decir, el microcontrolador en la plataforma de arduino; Fritzing para el montaje digital en breadboard, su esquemático y el PCB (Print Circuit Board), todo esto del circuito propuesto; e Inkspace para la creación de los componentes que no están disponibles en el Fritzing. Este proyecto combina tres tecnologías, las cuales combinadas, dan como resultado una Distance & Light Intensity Smart Lamp
