International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology
This paper entitled Automated Lighting Rental System for Common Barangay Facilities sought to address the issues encountered by some users regarding the need of lights during their games in barangay Bulua, Cagayan de Oro City. The system was designed with an automatic mechanism that controlled the electric lightings comparable to pre-paid electric hour consumption by means of a bill acceptor. The developed device was equipped with a thermal printer that prints the receipt after using and a
... er using and a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to display the number of hours used. Arduino Mega 2560 was used to implement the system control concepts relative to its corresponding input and output relationship and control framework. The device's bills acceptor where the users has to insert can detect a twenty peso bill, fifty peso bill, one hundred peso bill , a five hundred peso bill and one thousand peso bill. The bill acceptor was programmed to give a time duration of hours to be consumed corresponding to the amount of bill inserted in the device. The project was installed at barangay Bulua Cagayan de Oro City for testing and evaluation. Evaluation results show that the proposed automated lights sport basketball court yielded positive affirmation as evidenced by high mean ratings on pre-established evaluation parameters.
