Course description


Insects are everywhere. They fly, crawl, and buzz around us. Their sounds can be irritating to us.

Detect Insect Buzzing using A Microphone and Program PIC Microcontroller Timer and ADC to Filter Different Frequencies

This course will give you a chance to Make an Insect Detector System using Tools that you simply already dealt with to make Your Life safer.

If you are thinking that we are going to use a module to detect Insect buzzing, then you are wrong. We are going to rely on a few electronic components such as a Microphone and Amplifier to detect the frequency of an Insect Buzz. And we are going to explain this in a step-by-step manner.

If you like, most people get irritated by flying insects or have a fear of being stung by one of them, then this circuit and this course are for you.

In this course, we will create a circuit that can detect flying bugs, you will learn new things about some of the electronic components, you learn how to use your microphone and how to amplify the signal that comes out of your microphone and read it using a microcontroller.

And in the end, you will have a fully functional device that can you that you can use at your own home.

This project uses a PIC microcontroller to detect insect sounds using a microphone and filter them out using the ADC value.

What you will learn in this course

  • Hardware and software requirements.
  • Detect different frequencies with PIC microcontrollers.
  • Insect detector working principle and the amplifying or how to amplify sound with an electric microphone.
  • PIC Microcontroller  digital to analog conversion
  • Connect a simple circuit and we will start coding our insect detector to detect the buzzing using the microphone.
  • Create a PCB design for your circuit
  • Practical application examples.

Why you should take this course?

  • You can build this project at home or in the lab, it is cheap and easy to build. You can use it for your own purpose or sell it as a product. The project is scalable in that you can add more filters for other sounds like car horns, fire alarms, etc.
  • You can build your own insect detector using a PIC microcontroller and a microphone.
  • Insects are a menace. They eat your crops, infest your house, and can even be a threat to your life. If you want to protect yourself from these pests, you need to know when they are around so that you can take the necessary steps.
  • This PIC-based insect detector will not only save money but also be more reliable than store-bought devices. It will also allow you to customize it according to your needs

The course and the circuit design are provided with this source so that you can easily use them and start working on your own insect detector.
