Alcohol Monitoring System with ATmega32 and LED Display using Analog MQ-3 Alcohol Sensor
In this project, we will learn How to make an Alcohol Monitoring System with AVR ATmega32 Microcontroller and LED Display using Analog MQ-3 Alcohol Sensor. Here, we display and monitor the concentration of alcohol using Analog MQ-3 Alcohol Sensor in 1X8 LED Array.
Since, the output of the Analog MQ-3 Alcohol Sensor is analog in nature and these analog signals cannot be processed directly by the ATmega32 microcontroller. So, first this signal needs to be converted to digital value to be processed by the microcontroller. The conversion can be done with the help of ADC of the AVR ATmega32 microcontroller. After converting the analog signal to digital, the microcontroller will display the digital value of Analog MQ-3 Alcohol Sensor in the 1X8 LED Array. But the LED array can display only 8-bit at a time. So, the 1×8 LED array will first display the lower 8-bit and then the upper 2-bit of the 10-bit digital output with a delay of 500ms.
Now, we will place cotton dipped in Alcohol/Spirit near Analog MQ-3 Alcohol Sensor and we will see the change in concentration of alcohol in the LED Array.
