Designing a programmed thief pitfall trap
MetadataShow full item record
One may realize that the security agents usually tend to protect the lives of other people but leaving theirs at a risk. Of course a criminal wouldn’t wish to be captured and so they would try to do anything against a guard in order to successfully finish their mission. So there is need to cleanly get these criminals while also making sure our security agents are safe. In the following model, I have designed amid-way open-able box that automatically opens when a sensor is triggered. It basically consists of a push button(sensor), 2 servo motors and an Arduino nano. A program was loaded onto the board. When the button is open, the pit is closed and when someone closes the button by stepping on it, the pit opens and shuts immediately the button opens. Therefore, the person who steps on the button releases it as they fall into the pit & when the button opens, the pit closes the person inside. This model works, though in real practice, more efficient sensors like the infrared sensors should be used.
