Monitoring a Continuous Integration Server with Traffic Lights and an Arduino

The team at Isotope|11 have created an interesting solution to the problem of real-time project status monitoring by using a traffic light display to show the progress with their continuous integration server. This is great for a quick glance of the status, or a way to keep the team working hard to avoid a red light. Either way, they’ve made a demonstration video below: 


Apart from sourcing a traffic light head, the rest is pretty easy. Ruby and Arduino code is provided along with the required schematics, so visit the project page to get started with your own. And we’re on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.


When creating more complex circuitry to work with an Arduino-compatible project – consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega range, we offer a complete range for you to work with.
