Happy New Year =D

So, its the start of a new year. And what a good year it will be.


In the time leading up to the Christmas break i decided to improve the quality of my website, from something that was functional, but looked awful, to something that was more with the standards we have come to expect in our everyday life.


This proved to be a little difficult as HTML is not my first language, after some hunting for a template i found a nice one (1 html document and 1 css document) that would fill my needs. 


Raspberry Pi Case top redesign

ok, since the 3D printer can't do the CEIT logo on the top of the case I've redesigned it to have the roof missing in the shape of the logo. I'm not so sure about the support structures for the letters, I still can't decide if it looks good or bad.ceit_raspberry_pi_case_top_correct_scale.stl

CEIT Raspberry Pi case Small Tweak

Just a small adjustment to the model for the top of the raspberry pi case.


Full Draft Case For Raspberry Pi and Battery Packs

I've finished a full draft of the case and battery pack with a method to attach them together. I didn't get to see if all the spacings of the raspberry pi case were correct because the printer was having some trouble, but from the one component that did print (albeit very warped), The spacing between some of the ports seems correct.

Functioning Active RFID system. Another Update.

In the past week this project has come together quite well. The basestation is running on the Netduino Plus receiving packets from tags and sending them over the network using the UDP protocol.The basestation (seen below) can be reproduced at a fraction of the cost of the OpenBeacon EasyReader POE II, using just a few widely available components. Although the netduino does not support power over ethernet and only one radio chip is used (slightly less throughput) it is a viable low cost alternative.

RFID OpenBeacon Base Station: Progress Update

It has been 2 weeks since I started working on the base station. The hardware consists of the ‘Netduino Plus’ and a Nordic nRF24L01+ 2.4GHz radio package from Sparkfun. The Netduino Plus features on board Ethernet and SD card reader, perfect for use in this project as it is intended to have all data aggregated on a networked server.
