Has anyone worked with RFID
May 22, 2008
While I am waiting for my Picaxe28x1 to arive I have been looking at a few ideas that I want to play with. one of which is a device that regularly pings RFID tags to see if they are within the given area and warns the user if they aren't. basically this is used by a forgetful person like a friend of mine in long beach who leaves his swords everywhere when he drinks (which is pretty much always). I know that this whould be easilly done but I cant find any tutorials online dealing with RFID tags besides the ones telling buisness owners how to upgrade their invintory managment.
Also I have found one or two places to buy an RFID reader/writer or an RFID reader, but I look at the datasheet and cant really understand the terminology, so if anyone has seen a technical manual out there for RFID circuit development or just the terminology that may be somewhat helpful as well.
I think there is a lot of fun to be had with RFID.
