You’ll be guided through three hands-on projects that let you experience RFID in action.

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’ll 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’re 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

    Pages missing and you can't scroll past page 74.

    It starts out very simply and seems to be on target for what it is until you get to page 74. At that point you can't scroll any further in the book. It continually goes to the scroll motion but snaps back to page 74. Tried to use the goto page number and finally got to page 80. Lost an entire project and the tail end of the code for the second project. I know it was only a few dollars, but you should at least be able to read the whole thing.......
