Develop a plan for dissemination of your final project.

Just a recap of my final project topic as below.

The name of the final project is Notebook Cabinet Monitoring System

There is a notebook cabinet in the computer room in my secondary school. In the notebook wooden cabinet, it contains total 40 notebook computers and 40 battery chargers. Notebooks computers are taken out when students attending computer lessons. After computer lesson, students need to put notebook computers back to the wooden cabinet.

There is a major concerns we are facing it now. Also, a solution is provided.

Concern :Temperature in the notebook cabinet may be too high

Since it is a wooden cabinet. When all notebook computers are charging electricity in the wooden cabinet. The 40 notebook computers and 40 battery chargers may be too high temperature in a wooden cabinet. Too high temperature may cause fire accident or affect the performance of notebook computers and batterys.

Solution :

To use a temperature sensors to measure the temperature in the wooden cabinet. If the temperature is too high, Fans are automatically turned on in order to lower the temperture. Also, a real time notification will be sent to IT staffs and computer teacher in order to notifiy them.

When the temperature is getting lower, Fan are automatticaly turned off.

This solution can reduce the labour force for IT staffs to regular check the temperature of cabinet and lower the risk of fire accident.
