Smart sensor system built to respond to laundry frustrations

Smart Facilities

Live in an apartment with a shared laundry room? Tired of towing your laundry to the laundry room only to find the washers and dryers busy? Brad Mager and Merrick McCracken have built and tested a wireless sensor system that allows you to know when the washer or dryer is free, from the comfort of your couch, or wherever you are. Their smart laundry facility system design and description was created as part of the CS/ECE 5780/6780 Embedded System Design Class. Check out the video describing the system.
