Automated speaker for kayak surfing competitions

Creation of a warning device for Kayaks Surf competitions. There is a tablet with three clocks that count the time of the competition so that the horn indicates to the competitors the time they have left. A speaker is activated by the tablet's clock automatically.

Project objectives

  • Improve the previous existing system consisting of an analog device, which gave punctual errors and required a person dedicated to controlling the horn during the competition.
  • Make a robust system.
  • Use commercial elements to integrate the system. 
  • Use resources available in classrooms. 
  • Foster knowledge at the heart of Arduino and Android.
