An example of a non- graphical event driven programme would be asmoke alarm. What would the event be? The event for a smoke alarm would be thatthe smoke alarm has sensors built inside which will detect if there is smokeinside the room. The smoke alarm will then get triggered and start beeping,which is due to the sensors picking up the detection of the smoke. Another example of a non-graphical event driven programme is a CDplayer. The reason why this a non-graphical programme is because the user doesnot see anything via a monitor, tv or a screen. A CD player has a lot of eventswhich happen. The first event to occur is when the user presses on the buttonon the cd player, to stop or switch out a cd.
The CD player will stop playingthe music, and slowly start to stop the disc from spinning in the cd player.The next event to occur, a red light will usually start slowly flashing thiswill indicate to a user that the disc is ready to be ejected/taken out. Thirdly, an example of a non-graphical user programme would be acar, within a care it shows the fuel wither it being full or empty. Once thecar has used up its fuel and the dial are on empty, a sensor will notice it,from that a red gas pump icon will appear on the cars dashboard which willindicate that the car needs to be topped up. I do think this is a good butsmall event driven programme due to it making it easier for drivers to noticewhen they must refill up the car. Alarmsystems, in houses are great, they have an event where once the house door isunlocked a loud sound will go off, the only way to stop the noise is by typingin the code/numbers that will stop it.
The reason why this event driven programme is suitable is because ifsomeone who is not meant to be in the house tries to break in/ open the doorthe alarm system will go which will scare that person away from the house andit will also trigger another event which will alert the authorities, if thealarm has been on for a certain amount of time.
