Post your email address to the public as an image to avoid spam.

May 4, 2013 Leave a comment

Whenever you want to post your email address to the public and don’t want to use a Contact Form which usually hides the address, try to display the address of the email as an image in order to avoid spam.

One way to achieve this is to manually create your email address as an image and embed it to your contact page. Most of the times we want this operation to be automatically. So, I have created a simple example to show you how you can make this possible.

Arduino: Security Access Control with Multi-Factor Authentication.

August 19, 2010 Leave a comment

This project refers to an Arduino sketch which – with the help of a system VRBot, a basic keyboard, an RFID reader and a piezo speaker – can implement a Security Access Control with Multi-Factor Authentication.

The system comprises a security level associated with typing a password (something I know), a security level associated with the use of an RFID tag (something I have) and a security level associated with the recognition of a voice message password (something I am).

Arduino: Vehicle Parking Helper with Ultrasonic Sensor and LCD display.

August 18, 2010 Leave a comment

This project refers to an Arduino sketch which uses an ultrasonic sensor for calculating the time return of the ultrasonic signal emitted by the sensor and the object reflecting the signal back. Then, with the help of appropriate physicomathematical formulas, it performs calculation of the distance between the sensor and the object causing the reflection signal. The distance is displayed in an appropriate LCD display both in inches and in centimeters. This system could be used in security doors, on cars as a helper to park or anywhere else where distance at close proximity is important.
