I finally found time to restart my kegbot project from a very long time ago. Here’s what I have:
- An Arduino with the old shield/coaster combo
- A Rasberry Pi with Kegberry installed
- A 1st gen Nexus 7 with Kegbot installed
What I’m trying to figure out is how it will all work together. My assumption is that the tablet will communicate with the RPi over http and the Arduino will connect via USB to the Nexus 7.
I’m hoping to get everything hooked up together this weekend, but I wanted to make sure I was on the right track first.
The other question I had is if there were any forks of the kegbot server where you can assign a drink count limit to a user. I’m hoping to get a kegerator running at work and want to put some controls on how much a person can drink in a given time period. Kind of like you would with fares on a subway pass.
