Ardiuno data logger?

Random thoughts..

As I run out of time, I'm thinking of dropping the USB capture devices - but I won't have time to develop a solution without one. (I believe something like run ridge SDK on the leopard board and a video capture module is going to take me too long.) For this year a video server is looking more feasible - but it leaves the 1-wire data logging high and dry.

So a Vivotek 8102 is on it's way for testing - "just in case".

Running an addition arm board for the 1wire is overkill and battery intensive.

At a glance standalone dataloggers are a +£50ea
good ones, (Tiny tag),  +£100ea

Thinking about alternative remote 1-wire for less power consumption than an ARM board...

Ardiuno plus data logger shield (SD card + real time clock + 1 wire interface)

Given that there is already a datalogger sketch written for this, it's really tempting... but if we only need one logger per tunnel, and one exterior logger; is it worth it? Probably not... but at £30 for the base unit and £12 a sensor it might be worth a look at.
