Abstract

Sensor aided pressure cooker whistle counter is a type of equipment wherein any user would be able to count the number of whistles coming out from a pressure cooker as a result of the release of pressure. It tracks the movement (lift to be specific) of the weight in the upward direction using a proximity sensor mounted close to the weight. The Arduino Uno is programmed in such a manner that for a lift of the weight, the counter increases its value by one. It is also programmed in a fashion that a buzzer alerts the user once the number of whistles exceeds the desired number set at the initial stage. The counter displays the required number of whistles and the present number which has gone by. The sensor probe is mounted atop the cooker lid using a thermocouple base for the prototype version. In actual practice, any material which could withstand high temperatures could be used. The circuit connections and other electronics are bolted to a common plywood base in order to avoid clumsiness. The main purpose of developing such a device is not to lose the tradition of cooking in a pressure cooker and rather causing ailments to human health by employing an electric rice cooker.
