Chris Kennedy/Jackson Sipes Color Sensor – Pipe Sensing

For our project, we were thinking about Public Sewage sensing and how we could use real time analytics to track certain chemicals in the sewage pipes. Currently, waste is only measured using daily processes that analyzes the wasted in a lab. A sewage pipe would have built in sensors that could track certain data about the waste that flows through it, and it could be displayed on a variable screen. We looked at the Color Sensor and how the color of the waste could give information about certain molecules that exist in the waste. We set up a color sensor on a breadboard and then connected it to an LED screen which displays the RGB values. These values could be monitored in realtime and then used to track information about the public in that sewage region.
