Hello again, was wondering if anyone on this forum is participating over at kegbot.org I have been following the project for a couple of years, and am currently working to try and build one. I still need a lot of parts but I am getting close.
I posted a similar question on a local homebrew forum, but didn't get any responses, so I was wondering if anyone here is interested in a project of this nature.
Currently, I am working on interfacing an old iPhone 3GS to an Arduino, which I have successfully got serial read working from the iPhone, i.e. the Arduino writes a serial message and the iPhone reads it.
I am also working on interfacing a parallax RFID reader that I purchased from Radio Shack for like $20 bucks USD to the iOS project I am working on. The code for the project is open source and can be found here
If you already have a jailbroken iDevice you can test the project by downloading a binary of it by adding this source to your cydia repository: chrisrjones.com/repo
Basically, as I stated before I am developing an iOS app that will hopefully interface with the Kegbot firmware called Kegboard, and an RFID reader. I have been working on the project for o h about six months off an on, more off as of late, but if this is something your interested in, and you think you could contribute, I would greatfully enjoy working with someone as I try to finish this project up.
Some things I have already completed,
- develop iOS app
- app supports multiple users
- serial console
- add credits to user accounts with root account
- securly store user info
- trade credits amongst users
Some things I need to complete,
- associate an RFID badge to a user account
- create a while loop or something of that nature to look for the RFID badge when the program is launched
- read data from the swiss flow sensros
- interface RFID code into the Kegboard FW
The finished product would look something like this,
