Smart Electronic Chess Board Using Reed Switch
This paper introduces the used of reed switch to detect the chess pieces that played on the electronic chessboard. During the tournament, audiences are not allowed to watch the game too close with all chess players to avoid the chess players lost their concentration. Hence, a system that can automatically project the chess players’ game is needed. This digital electronic chessboard can display the chess game on the computer screen with integration to other components such as microcontroller, chess clock and software application. The result showed that the reed switch could be one of the solutions to reduce the expensive sensor cost of existing digital electronic chess set.
