For a client of us we are investigating if we can develop the following device:
In holland all dogs are chipped with a RFID chip ([url removed, login to view])
The chip has a 15 digit number.
There is a dutch database were the numbers are stored with the adress from the owner and the dogs name.
So when a lost dog is found, the vet can scan the dogs chip, and look up the owner in the database.
What we want to build (for fairs and demonstrations)
A 'Gate' where the dog (small and large) can walk through. In the gate is a rfid scanner, witch read the dog chip.
The computer in the gate takes the chipnumber, looks up the number in the database and gets the Dog's name (dog name is also in the database)
Then the dogs name is displayed on a big led screen above the port.
So: a dog walks through the gate and his name is displayed...
Can you design/build such a device?
