2018-11-08 (Th) Magnet Fish Spectacular

Angeliki Beyko, team captain, and I spent an evening testing the RFID modules I had proposed. The RFID modules were to be installed in each fishing rod, the handle of which can be seen as the red handle to the left of the computer monitor in the picture below. The fishing rods will contain all the brains of the project including microcontrollers and sound effects.

 Angeliki modifying code

No code was written which will be copied to the hackathon project since that would violate the purpose and spirit of the hackathon where all the code will be written fresh. We tested the range of different RFID tag styles, including key fobs and cards. The cards had a read range exponentially greater than the key fobs.

RFID readings confirmed
