Security on college campuses is a good thing, especially when it comes to your dorm room or apartment building. But due to high initial cost, the Housing and Business Department at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, has opted for a proprietary door lock system which requires encoding new keycards manually for every resident, every year. The goal of this project is to offset this labor cost and drain on resources by automating the keycard encoding process. This project will address the design specifications and economic advantages of automation while also exploring and comparing alternative solutions.
