Troy Anderson needed a way to monitor workflow in his organisation, and decided a set of miniature traffic lights would be a great and simple way to display it. He has used an Ethernet-enabled Arduino board, Nathan Kennedy's fantastic teleduino service, relays and circuitry to control the lights via a rails app and teleduino.
The final results look great, and the project can be adapted to all sorts of status-monitoring or fun tasks. For more information including designs and links to the required code click here. And we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
Need an Ethernet-enabled Arduino board? And it needs to be an Arduino Mega2560-compatible? Then you're in luck as we have the awesome Freetronics EtherMega:
Quite simple the EtherMega is the fully-loaded Arduino-compatible board on the market today. Apart from being completely Arduino Mega2560-compatible, it includes full Ethernet interface, a microSD card socket, full USB interface, optional Power-over-Ethernet support and still has a circuit prototyping area with extra I2C interface pins. So if your project is breaking the limits, upgrade to the EtherMega today.
