If you want to experiment with radio frequency identification (RFID), this book by Tom Igoe (renowned for his work with Arduino) is the perfect place to start. You will be guided through three hands-on projects that let you experience RFID in action.


Description [Hide]

This book will give you an basic introduction to RFID and walk you through how to do some practical projects with it using an Arduino and Processing. RFID is used in various applications, such as identifying store items or accessing a toll road with an EZPass system. After you build each of the book’s projects in succession, you will have the knowledge to pursue RFID applications of your own.

  • Use Processing to get a sense of how RFID readers behave
  • Connect Arduino to an RFID reader and discover how to use RFID tags as keys
  • Automate your office or home, using RFID to turn on systems when you are present, and turn them off when you leave
  • Get a complete list of materials you need, along with code samples and helpful illustrations
  • Tackle each project with easy-to-follow explanations of how the code works

Table of Contents

  1. Radio Frequency Identification
  2. Reading RFID Tags in Processing
  3. Reading RFID Tags in Arduino
  4. RFID Meets Home Automation
  5. Conclusion

We carry most of the items for these projects, such as the Arduino UNO, Parallax RFID reader, RFID tags, and an FTDI adapter.
