RiderNet goes Into Action to help Save Our Horses

by miax on Sat Jan 07, 2012 12:34 am

Tonight the first business-application of RiderNet goes into action. One of our beloved horses (Chilli) is sick. :( Yesterday we would be staying vigil all night outside his stall, taking turns sleeping and checking on him. From now on, we simply attach one of the MBF Mobile Cams to the stall door and we can watch over them 24/7!

This was earlier than I expected, I have all the kit for using Adafruit Motor Shields and Servos to make rotating/tilting cameras driven by Megas. For now I'm using a TrendNet TV-IP400W WiFi camera, so all we needed was power. I am both worried for Chilli but also excited that everything actually worked.. I'll be up all night anyway, but now I can watch on my second monitor from my bedroom while hacking late into the night.

Say hello to the future ponies! We've got you on RiderCam. ;)

Chilli at 2:30am and 6am - happy and already waiting for breakfast :) Vigil concluded, RiderCam operation was 100% through the night at freezing temperatures - "A Good Day". :)

Thanks. :) Much of this work is thanks to Adafruit products, support and tutorials - so Adafruit Industries definitely had a hand in helping to save Chilli - and every horse that gets sick from now on. :D

Cheers!
