This project is about "PC Based Controller for a New Aquarium System". A new aquarium system consists of the development control for lighting and fish feeder system and also using radio frequency as a communication system. PC based controller is described as a controller that can be interfaced with PC to transmit or receive data to control automation system. Radio frequency is one of the wireless communications that transfers information over a distance without the use of electrical wires. In this project, it focuses on developing software and hardware. For the hardware part, there are 2 main circuit board will be developed which are interface circuit and water level changer circuit. The interface board that had been developed in this project will be divided into three parts which are parallel port as a communication interface, relay and transistor are used as a switch and remote control car as a wireless communication. The remote control car has two parts which are transmitter circuit and receiver circuit. The transmitter circuit will be connected with interface board to communicate with PC and send signal to receiver circuit at aquarium whereas the receiver circuit will be used to control fish food feeder and lightning bulb. For the software part, Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 is used as a main timer to control the fish food feeder and lighting system.
