This is a Queuing System project requested by a clinic asistant which allows the doctor enter number from a keyboard and display it on a 32x16 LED panel.
This project uses two Arduino, the first Arduino functioned as a SENDER which included a PS2 keyboard and a mini LCD for number input. While the other Arduino is functioned as a RECEIVER which will trigger a "ding-dong" tone and display number on the 32x16 LED panel.
The SENDER uses a PS2 keyboard instead of USB keyboard, USB keyboard will cost higher since it require a USB host shield. You should get a Matrix keypad (please use google translate) in case the PS2 keyboard is not available in the market.
These two Arduino (SENDER & RECEIVER) is connected via a CAT5e network cable, the CAT5e cable provide power to the RECEIVER and also transfer data between two Arduino.
This is a very simple Arduino project which control the 16x32 RGB LED Matrix Panel via an 16pin IDC cable. The Arduino will continuously sending 5 set colours (Red, Green, Blue, White, Black) to the LED Matrix Panel that allow the technician to find out which part of the LED Matrix Panel is malfunction.
This is my first RC car control by an Arduino and a wirless router running OpenWRT. There are many OpenWRT supported routers, I'm using a TP-Link TL-MR3020 3G/4G Wireless N Router for this project since it is very slim, low power consumption and it is cheap.
