Guys I'm a noobie and I really need help. I have been tasked with a small project that I really am trying to get my head around.
We have small kids battery ride-ons in a shopping center and the kids can ride these things everywhere. The issue is I want to stop the ride-on when ever it gets to an exit, escalator, carpark entrance... etc you get the point.
The range I want the ride-on to stop is around 5-10 meters from some sort of a proximty beacon which is where I think bluetooth would be perfect.
I have multiple ride-ons and multiple exits to cover
The arduino on the ride-on only needs 1 output to turn on a relay to kill power on the forward motor (they can still reverse)
The arduino at the exits are basically continuously sending out a signal like a proximity beacon
Is this possible to do the above? Which Arduino's/add on modules would suit to do this? Would a nano and RN42 do the job for both ride-on and beacon? Any other way of doing the above easier?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as this is a whole new world for me!
