Abstract:The goal of this bachelor-assignment is to design a device that can detect and display the presence of alcohol in one’s body. The product has to cater to the international social trend of the realization that alcohol can be dangerous for the health and it is desirable that the gadget has a link with alcohol use in traffic This trend is a result of the increasing alcohol consumption. This can be illustrated by an Australian research: looking at the age of initiation by five-year age cohorts for persons born between 1940 and 1984, it was found that more than half (56 per cent) of the 1980-84 birth cohort reported alcohol use by age 15, compared to only 16 per cent of those born between 1940 and 1944 (Degenhardt et al. 2000).
