I wish to build a small portable instrument using arduino microcontroller and android smart phones. The basic idea is that the AMR meters installed at the consumers houses are emitting the meter reading and other data using IR blasters. I wish to catch the data emitted by the smart meters on my smart phone. To achieve this object, I have to build a portable instruments with IR scanner to catch the signals emitter by the meters. The data recorded in the proposed instruments has to be transferred to my smart phone using either charging port or sound jackets. I have to use the meter reading to generate electricity bills on the sport so that the same can be deliver to the consumers. Can any body held me in this project.
