RiderScan – Manage horses with Adafruit gear! RFID barn management system made for Misty Brae Farm of Virginia…

This is a demo of the RiderScan system; an RFID barn management system made for Misty Brae Farm of Virginia. The system is comprised mostly (~85%) of electronic goodies from Adafruit Industries (http://www.adafruit.com/) and cobbled together using an Arduino Mega Protoshield and lots of Acrylic. I have a forum post with more details at [here, Adafruit forums]

This is our favorite project at the moment!

    Really well done. One of the best hacks I’ve seen in a good long time.

  2. Nice. At last some proper device in an enclosure. Good to see an actual prototype in the flood of “arduino, breadboard and inordinate tangle of wires”-type proofs of concept, held together only by willpower and duct tape.

    Thanks George Graves and Zbig!! 🙂

    It was alot of fun to make, I would have been hopelessly lost without all of the Adafruit tutorials showing me how. More updates to come!

    Cheers!

  4. That’s a slick project, and yes, Adafruit is a huge help to the masses!

  5. Glad to see people doing cool things with the PN532 board!

    @Jeremy – Thanks!

    @Kevin – Your PN532 boards are Awesome! I got one v1.3 version for the FTDI (for future programming of the tags), very nice technology. 🙂
