Abstract

The focuses of this Major Qualifying Project (MQP) are: the upgrade of media displayed on the Atwater Kent Power Panels, the addition of a Smart Mirror, and the relocation of the Independent Grid Solar Charging Station. Changes were made to the features of two past MQP’s: Atwater Kent Power Panel (2016) and Grid Independent Charging Station with Power FlowDisplay (2012). These projects are accessible to everyday users and highlight the awareness of energy usage within Atwater Kent. A Smart Mirror will be able to reduce the amount of power consumed by the Power Panels by not allowing the system to be on for a long period of time. This new combination of systems provides the Atwater Kent community with an interactive method of conveyed energy usage and previous MQP’s.
