The user interface is an android application for a mobile device. The main purpose of the application is to notify the user when a mouse has entered into the trap. The application will receive the data from the cloud in which the Beaglebone pushes the data to. Once the data is received from the cloud it will send a push notification to the user. The application will be simple and easy to use.
The data processing unit of our project automates most of the functionality of the trap. Once the sensor detects the mouse presence inside the trap it will send a signal to the processing unit. The processing unit will contain most of the logic for the trap. For our data processing unit, we decided to use a Beaglebone Black. Beaglebone Black is a credit card sized computer that is powerful and small enough for our project. It take care of all the data processing and communicates with our cloud service.
Smart Trap is a high-tech, non-lethal mouse trap. It uses a passive infrared sensor to detect when a mouse has entered. The trap then automatically pushes the notification data to the cloud that will sync with the android application. The user will be notified of the mouse capture on the app on their mobile device and can then take the trap outside and release the mouse. Release can be done either remotely from the application or by pressing a switch on the trap. Once the mouse leaves the trap, the user will be notified, and the trap can then be brought back inside to be setup again.
