Name of Innovation (Telugu): మద్యం సేవించి వాహనాలు నడిపే డ్రైవర్ల కోసం ఆటోమేటిక్ ఇంజిన్ లాకింగ్ సిస్టమ్

Description – English: Our project detects when a driver consumes alcohol through the Mq3 Alcohol detecting sensor. After detecting it sends signals to the microcontroller. The microcontroller is programmed as when alcohol is detected through the engine will stop. If the engine stops the buzzer start which alerts the people. Microcontrollers send signals to the relay circuits which control overheating of microcontrollers. The relay circuit stops the engine of the vehicle eventually the vehicle doesn’t move and the buzzer starts buzzing here I used electrically at home for this I used a transformer, a bridge rectifier, capacitors, and three regulators, but it also works through the battery (12v). This project was placed at the steering of three and four-wheelers and two-wheelers at the meter. Alcohol detector sensor detects through threshold level of a driver who consumed alcohol.
