PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Dish Antenna positioning or tuning is very important for getting standard broadcast signals from a satellite. The dish must be pointed at a precise angle to get the strongest possible signal. If the dish position is adjusted manually, it becomed too cumbersome to allign it at the best possible position. Therefore, the required system is designed with an advanced technology in order to achieve the best possible position of the dish by remote operation.

The main intention of this project is to control a dish position remotely using an Android application, which is capable of receiving the typical broadcast signals from the satellite.

 The proposed system uses a microcontroller of the 8051 family and a rectified power supply. In this system,  a Bluetooth is interfaced to the microcontroller for enabling communication. Two motors are controlled by the motor driver which is connected to the microcontroller.

The dish position is controlled through an Android-application device, wherein a user can enter the commands through the Android application on a GUI. Such commands are sent to the pre-programmed microcontroller through the Bluetooth. Furthermore, the received data is compared with the stored data.  If the  data matches to release the corresponding signals, then the microcontroller controls the dish position in all directions, such as forward, backward, up and down, etc., based on the input commands.
