Motorbike Alarm

The principle is a very simple one: once the bike has been set on its stand, three carefully-positioned mercury switches give position information to a microcontroller, which it then memorizes when it is powered up. The surveillance starts right away; any change in the bike’s position will upset the configuration of the three switches and set off the alarm.
