 en Design and Construction of a Computer Controlled Clothes Washing Machine
Akpobi, J.A. & Okonta, J.A.

Abstract

In this work we develop a computer software for controlling the operations of a domestic clothes washing machine. The valves, pump, electric motor and other sensitive parts were computer-controlled. In the design, the mechanical timer’s function were replaced by a software driven emulator which then controls components of the machine to carry out specific tasks at pre-determined intervals. The software was written using Microsoft Visual C++ for the IO.DLL File, while the control codes were developed using Microsoft Visual Basic Language. The software performed accurately and efficiently.
