Responsive Panel using Arduino and PIR SensorSeptember 11, 2012

Our friend Dr Chantelle Niblock meets us Kaplan, a student from University of Nottingham who talks us about his great project.
The panel responds to the movement of the buildings occupants, creating an interactive environment. This could be developed to a more sophisticated system that senses various inputs and provides various outputs accordingly, in an attempt to maximise the occupants comfort within the building and increase the interaction between buildings and people.

Arduino receives input data from a PIR sensor [when motion is detected], which releases current to the nitinol wire causing it to contract and open the panel.
