# Making a good sensor

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Making a good sensor: coursework Task: to choose, build and test a sensor circuit. The aim of my coursework is to make a thermistor component, which can be installed in a green house. The use of my system will be to regulate and maintain a constant temperature within the green house. How I aim to do this: Firstly, I would have to calibrate the values of the sensor according to temperature. This is to make sure that the system of mine would know when to open the green house window and when to close it. How the window would open? To open and close the window of the green house, the output of my circuit should be a motor. Therefore, when the output to my circuit is high, the motor will activate and as a result open the window.

Testing: I tested the line follower robot by using light and covering the phototransistors. I noticed that when one phototransistor received more light, the motor connected to the other phototransistor (the one will less light) slowed down. When I covered both phototransistors the motors slowed don and stopped.
