Microcontroller-Based Automated Warming Device for Temperature Regulation (2013)


Agustino, Blythe Briones, Kith Lorenz Canoza, Albert Levinson


-The purpose of this research is to design and implement an automated warming device that will be used for the temperature regulation of hypothermic patients. The PIC16F887A microcontroller processes all the data coming from temperature and pressure sensors and determines the proper calibration that will be used to control the necessary devices that will be responsible for the entire warming process. The automated warming device also has a blood pressure acquisition system, an alarm system, and a data acquisition system features. Overall, the PIC16F877A microcontroller handles the operation of the LCD, GSM module, alarm buzzer, heaters, indicators, motor, solenoid valve, switching circuits and conditioning circuits.
