The system proposed in this paper is a simulation of a simple solution for monitoring and controlling the temperature in a closed space or area. The technology behind this system is Embedded Systems, which is a computer hardware program based on a microprocessor with software designed to perform dedicated tasks. The hardware part of the system comprises: a Temp-36 sensor, an Arduino UNO R3 board, a 16x2 LCD display, a breadboard, an L293D Dual H-Bridge motor driver, a DC motor, a fan headpiece, LED, two 1K ohm resistors and one 220 ohm resistor, and a potentiometer. The system code is programmed using C language and fed to the Arduino UNO R3 board. The connections in the system will be done using the breadboard and the output will be displayed on the LCD unit.
