Make: Arduino and RFID

Make: Arduino and RFID

Riley Porter, our Arduino projects guy, is going to be loading some basic Arduino tutorials to Make: Projects. These will be like project stubs, the basic details of doing something that you, dear reader, can then add to as you start using the tech sketched out in the project. His first one is on adding and setting up the code for a Parallax RFID reader kit for your Arduino. If you have any experience using an RFID reader with Arduino, especially the Parallax/Grand Design kit, please add your content to the project.

This is just one of the projects Riley has done for us. See the others at our Make: Arduino page.

    This is a shameless plug :-) for an Arduino-RFID-DataLogging shield project I’m working on. It is a work in progress. But next to what is shown below it provides extended logging and authentication functionality. It is meant to become the access system to a gym.
    for the latest news on my project.
