Milestone The MDB TX is working.
Milestone A drink can be vended now.
Milestone The backend is in a early alpha state, but works fine.
light blue is the LED side where the Arduino is connected, yellow is the phototransistor side. The baudrate was 9600Baud.
I decided to solve the electronic „problem“ with a Arduino Mega 2560 + MEGA Proto PCB Shield. That will make it much more easy to reconstruct the project for other hackers. The costs will be nearly the same as if we build our own board from scratch. Possibly we will manufacture a small series of MDB shields or something like that in the future and sell it at cost price. It's a clean solution. —Bouni
The authentification at the machine is planned to be done with GNUPG SmartCards. We already own 2 OmniKey CardMan card readers
