Arduino Integrated RFID Bicycle Lock
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this research is to design a multi-purpose electronic lock for bicycles and motor scooters. This engineering project will develop a battery-powered device that can function both as a touchless electronic lock and, if necessary, a traditional mechanical lock. In order to conquer this task, I will generate a lock design that will be secure while also allowing convenient owner access to the internals to change the battery when it inevitably loses charge. Security, convenience and ease of use are the highest priority design criteria. With this device, it will be possible to synchronize existing electronic card keys tag as used in some apartments and store it within device memory, which will reduce the number of keycards/keys that must be carried around on a daily basis. Data logs will also be stored to determine time-of-day and date when a bike lock was unlocked or broken and, therefore, making it easier to track down the missing property on campus and around town.
