Digital Egg Incubator System (DEIS)

Authors(5) :-Sangeetha S, Sathiya Priya P, Selva S, Rushinth John, Gayathri C

An incubator is a device which hatches and simulates avian incubation by keeping eggs warm and in the correct humidity. The incubators available in the market are mostly designed to support a specific type of egg and are quite expensive too. Limitations like cost, egg type, device specifications are the only problem that current device have. This project tries to overcome these limitations. In this project the incubators make use of heat sensors whose output is constantly monitored by a microcontroller so as to manage the temperature range of the specific egg. The microcontroller has been programmed to handle various eggs by predefining the requirements in its code and it is monitored using GSM. The egg type can be easily selected through buttons and an LCD display.
