Wireless Mousetrap Monitoring System

Motorola Flash Innovation 2003 – Design Contest
Distinctive Excellence

Alberto Ricci Bitti


The 68HC908QT4-based system consists of a monitoring station—a computer-controlled receiver with an LCD and a relay output—and up to 20 mouse sensors. A sensor is placed inside each live-catch trap. When a mouse is captured, the sensor transmits the trap ID to a master unit, which logs the trap ID and displays it on the LCD. The receiver can also dispatch a call to an external service, triggering an ordinary automatic phone dialer connected to its relay out.
