Merrin School

Profile Info

Locked out from his scout clubhouse, Thomas developed an access system that relies on near-field technology, a unique user ID code being stored and accepted by a RFID reader controlled by an arduino micro. This is ‘paywave’ technology and could be extended to instant credit/debit card payment options for access, say for parking buildings, gym etc, it also links to the users calendar via wifi shield.

Open Sesame won 2nd place in the 12 and under category, brilliant work Thomas!
