Summary

Sample controller box

We started this project with two goals in mind, for Google makerspaces where employees all have the same kind of RFID badge:

  1. Only people authorized (trained) should be able to use dangerous tools
  2. We'd like to have reliable access logs for even non-dangerous tools

Organization

docs/
  Documentation on the project to include contributions on tool connectivity.
software/
  The Python client that runs on a Pi.
hardware/
  The custom Pi hat we use to interact with buttons and a power switch tail.

Contributing

We welcome contributions, especially ones that make this more useful to other makerspaces. We'd like this to be a generic solution wherever possible.
