ThatÔÇÖs why this project is named as ÔÇÿPROPELLER LED DISPLAYÔÇÖ

Basic principle behind this project:
POV (Persistance Of Vision):
This is the phenomenon which is related to vision capability of human eye by which an after- image is thought to persist for approximately 1/25th of a second. So, if someone is observing the images at a rate of 25 images per second, then they appear to be continuous. The best example of this property is the red circle we observe when we rotate the firecracker or incense stick in circle.


In this section we will emphasize on detailed overview of each of the block shown in previous block diagram. In every description of the block respective schematics and working is explained.

The propeller display consists of following blocks, as shown in the block diagram.
1. Interrupter Module
2. Microcontroller
3. LED module
4. DC motor
5. DC power supply

1. Interrupter Module
Interrupter module is our sensor module, consisting of the IR interrupt sensor MOC7811, from Motorola Inc. This sensor was selected from a variety of other alternatives, because of its small size, precise interrupt sensing, and sturdy casing.
One great advantage of using this module is, interfacing it with the microcontroller is just a matter of two resistors and a general purpose transistor. Following is the complete circuit…
