We started this project with two goals in mind, for Google makerspaces where employees all have the same kind of RFID badge:
- Only people authorized (trained) should be able to use dangerous tools
- We'd like to have reliable access logs for even non-dangerous tools
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.
We welcome contributions, especially ones that make this more useful to other makerspaces. We'd like this to be a generic solution wherever possible.
