Under a module of mine in this course, my team and I have to create a product that makes use of Microcontroller applications to the daily world. Hence, my team and I have designed on a new enhanced product which is the "I extinguisher".
Our idea is that when a fire has started, people will have to break the emergency glass for the keys to use the fire extinguisher. Usually most fire extinguishers are sealed in a case which has a key that is breakable to allow access of the fire extinguisher. At this point of time, we know that many people tend to panic during this time and they have to break the glass for the key before using the fire extinguisher. Our team has decided that instead of wasting precious time, we decided to build a sensor in the sense that whenever a fire breaks out, the sensor will automatically detect and opens the case for usage of fire extinguishers
This solution will allow easy access to fire extinguishers and most small fires can be put out easily through this convenience.
Our team would like to seek everyone's advice on whether this enhancement has its pros and cons.
Feel free to give any comments!!!!
