thesis / dissertation description
ADDSMART is a research project focused on digitizing addresses of locations and building a smart mailbox by combining wireless sensors, cameras, locks, and RFID readers and tags into a system controlled by an Arduino board. The aim of the project is to explore the idea of address digitization (using RFID tags to store addresses) and incorporate it into a mailbox that can communicate wirelessly with the homeowner to provide mail status updates and home security footage through digital photographs. This paper demonstrates the proposed ideas, describes the design of a smart mailbox, the technology that has been used, and the current results of the work along with future research ideas.
