Using Ratherboard with a security camera and as a weather station:
From all our use-cases, this is the one that can be seen in live action. On our website (http://www.ratherboard.com/#live_demo) you can watch a livestream (using Ustream), which shows a Ratherboard mounted on our office roof. The camera and the RB itself are both connected to the same Wi-Fi network. The RB is receiving the video from the camera and streaming it to Ustream.
Beside the task above, the same Ratherboard functions as a weather station as well, which measures temperature, light intensity, and GPS “number of satellites in view”, and “number of satellites in use” for demonstration purposes. The data is then uploaded to an online cloud server, and embedded in our website. If the Wi-Fi connection is temporarily lost, the RB stores all data until reconnection, and uploads them later, when the network is stable again. This ensures that no data is ever lost. (The device you can see next to the Ratherboard is our universal industrial control device, which is an older project, and from which all our previous experience was used while developing the RB).
You will be able to create similar projects with the RB very easily! The Ratherboard is the ideal tool for you! If we have convinced you, please show our website to your friends as well!
