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!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Really well done. One of the best hacks I’ve seen in a good long time.
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!
That’s a slick project, and yes, Adafruit is a huge help to the masses!
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. 🙂
