||Items listed here are things I would really enjoy setting
up, but due to the lack of time, they
are probably only a dream. Check back in 30 years when I retire!
1) Add a Web Cam on my house, install a sensor in my driveway to detect a vehicles motion, post the vehicle image on a web page and have the computer notify me by pager, if I am not at home, that someone has arrived.
2) I live in the country along a paved county road. Not a lot of traffic but a lot of lead foots. I have always wondered what the average speed is. I came up with the idea of installing photoelectric sensors about 40 ' apart along my property line. Each sensor would be wired to a microcontroller that would record the time between a car passing in front of each sensor. That time could then be used to calculate mph.
