Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you want to experiment with radio frequency identification (RFID), this book is the perfect place to start. All you need is some experience with Arduino and Processing, the ability to connect basic circuits on a breadboard with jumper wire—and youre good to go. Youll 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 books projects in succession, youll 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 youre 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

Synopsis:

Just as we identify things using information from our senses, so do computers. They can identify physical objects only by using information from their sensors. One of the best-known digital identification techniques is radio frequency identification, or RFID. The RFID tag pasted on the side of a book may seem like a universal marker, but what it means depends on who reads it. Based on the projects from the first edition of Making Things Talk (from the same author), this book shows you how to create projects with Arduino, Processing, and the Getting Started with RFID kit from Maker SHED to identify physical objects. The projects in this book were originally presented in the first edition of Making Things Talk (OReilly, 2007).

About the Author

Tom Igoe teaches courses in physical computing and networking, exploring ways to allow digital technologies to sense and respond to a wider range of human physical expression. He has a background in theatre, and his work centers on physical interaction related to live performance and public space. He is a co-author of the book Physical Computing: Sensing and Controlling the Physical World with Computers, which has been adopted by numerous digital art and design programs around the world. Projects include a series of networked banquet table centerpieces and musical instruments; an email clock; and a series of interactive dioramas, created in collaboration with M.R. Petit. He has consulted for The American Museum of the Moving Image, EAR Studio, Diller + Scofidio Architects, Eos Orchestra, and others.
