A colleague and I worked with some students in 2008 to develop a community bicycle checkout system for our campus. We got it working. Then, we started to port it over to Arduino control. The students had graduated, and we just lost steam. I have the code and hardware list. I'm putting some files here in case there may be some interest in someone picking this up. I have a ton more that I would have to sort through to make sense of, but let me know in the comments if you want any of the bits and pieces.

Some useful files including Arduino code, a Python GUI to interface with the Arduino, a LabVIEW GUI to interface with the Arduino (alternative to python), schematics, etc. Feel free to leave a comment if you have questions.
