Project Description

Our project is an organization system designed to be used to keep track of tools in a lab. It involves RFID chipping/tagging the tools and creating software that monitors the time at which someone checks in and out the tools and can display this information, if requested. This could be used in labs to ensure that tools are not damaged or misplaced, and if they are, then the log will be able to determine when and by whom the tool was misplaced and/or damaged.

Challenges

Some that challenges we may face are:

  • Connecting the software to the hardware, using RFID chips, and making the check in/check out console
  • Learning how to properly implement our software to meet our desired goals.
  • Learning how to use RFID chips and Raspberry Pi.
  • After doing some research, it seems that a common problem with RFID is tag collision and reader collision, meaning that signals can accidentally become overlapped. We will have to make sure that this issue does not happen with our tags.
  • Making sure that each group member understands the software in its entirety.
