Abstract

The Senior Computer Engineering Capstone Design project is a system designed to remotely monitor the environment of its pangolin habitats. This system consists of sensors attached to microcontrollers set within the environment, a database that take readings and stores information, and a website that allows zoo employees to access the information from anywhere in the zoo. We have implemented and tested our system locally to confirm its quality and efficiency. Through the use of this system, the Zoo will be able to monitor the environment of habitats and rapidly respond to any situation where the environment needs to be adjusted.
