OBJECTIVE
• In old washing machines,washing programme runs in such a way that washingb time and the
number of rinsing are fixed and adjusted to the most common dirtiness and the kind of
laundry.
• This is not economical,time consuming and it will reduce the life time.
• So here introducing fuzzy based washing machine ,in which washing process matches to the
laundry dirtiness.

ER

• For simplicity ,I have taken two inputs 1. Degree of dirtiness


2. Type of dirt.
• One output which is washing time.
OPTICAL SENSOR CIRCUIT
• Optical sensor constituted of LED AND PHOTOTRANSISTOR.
• Phototransistor emitter voltage shows water transparency.

CONCLUSION
• By using fuzzy based washing machine,washing programme becomes matched to the
dirtiness and the kind of laundry.
• Washing machine becomes intelligent because laundry is washed untill it is clear and rinsed.
• Energy saving is achieved and laundry life time is prolonged.
