Breathalyzer #2

THE FINAL VERSION POSTING OF THIS PROJECT IS AVAILABLE


Finished the circuitry of the breathalyzer
:D
I will have to install this in a casing
I think I am just going to Burberry wallet box

Schematic Diagram
Used this wiring diagram for my MQ-3
Codes:

The coding is not perfect
took me about an hour
:(
I don't think this project deserves any more effort
since the cheap alcohol sensor is not accurate

Moreover
I can always reprogram my micro-controller
even after finishing the product.

The only thing I have to remember to do is
for the final product
install a jumper that allows me to stop feeding power to
the sensor's heater

Will be using this for the next EE drinking session

Pictures of the prototype in operation:
Sleeping Mode (This is when the system will save as much power as it can)
This is when the system waits for the sensor to "boot".
This is when the users "blow" lol BAC is calculated and shows on the LCD
This is when the device "intellectually" make a suggestion. Based on BAC and its effects

UPDATE: Fixed BAC calculation after building the enclosure. Will keep updating... after each drinking session
