"Inside Itâ€™s Hot!!!" - "Dentro Ã¨ caldo!!!"
It can happen in the early morning to go to work or in the night to get home after a party.
Finding the car too cold is an unconfortable experience.
My solution is an stand-alone, battery powered, cellphone controlled heating appliance.
With a call or sms you can activate it and the same mode you can switched off it.
Maximum power output = 96W;
It is powered by a deep-cycle AGM battery 12V 24Ah (c20) for an autonomy of about 2h.
In 5 minutes it increases 2 Â°C the temperature of a 400 l volume.
The solutions already stayed in business are more expensive due to theyâ€™re thought for high level car and they arenâ€™t cell controlled but only by telecomando (see for example Webasto solutions).
With my solution everywhere you are, you can switch on the appliance with a cellphone so, when you will get up on the car, you will find itself just hot.
I introduced some improvement:
- control it through the internet (when it is connected by WiFi);
to made this I used ESPertino.....an HD / SF development platform similar to Arduino that contains a wifi module.
Also, by browsing a web page I can check the temperature (to made this I added a temperature sensor.....LM35).
- I added the "LOCAL" modality to use it simply by ON/OFF switch , without using cellular.
To realize the prototype Iâ€™ve used:
1 Arduino 1, 1 GSM Shield, 1 RelÃ© Shield, 3 high power resistors (100 W x 3 resistors),1 deep-cycle AGM battery 12V 24Ah (c20), 1 ARCTIC Alpine 64 PLUS Heatsink,1 ESPertino, 1 sensor temperature LM35.
At the moment the device is perfectly working and I am doing a suitable packaging.
The device is in the process of patenting.
I graduated in three years with a thesis entitled: THE FILTERING ALGORITHM OF BEAM ELECTRON IMAGES OF SPARC.
After my bachelor's degree I enrolled in the master's degree with specialization in Digital Microelectronic Systems graduating with a thesis entitled: ENERGY SAVING IN VIRTUAL ROUTER NETWORKS. During the preparation of the thesis i have been co-author of a Publication entitled "Virtualization and Virtual Router Migration: Application and Experimental Validation" published on the ENHANCED RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS journal.
In November 2014 I made and passed the state examination for the qualification to the engineering profession.
Since January 2015 i have worked like consultant for Reply SpA.
I currently manage 3 groups within the new TIM corporate billing system (EFBM).
I know in-depth the PORTAL and KFX billing systems.
In my free time I developed some prototypes of electronic devices.
Specifically, the prototype I propose to the Maker Fire is in the process of patenting.
My projects have 3 essential features:
They are USEFUL, EASY TO REALIZE, EASY TO USE.
I hope these features are winning features.
