 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi, I'm an undergraduate student trying to build a prototype for our project.
I decided to use arduino since I find it interesting.
Our prof asked us to build our own augmented board for the project
RFID Home access system.

Here's the overview.

RFID access system with
Data Acquisition
Manual override


I got arduino duemilanove
but cant get any shields for data acquisitions since
its hard to get one here in the Philippines.
I think no one sells those here.

As a matter of fact, I got ony atmega8 as the latest avr controller available here..

I'm trying to build my own arduino board and worst, I also need to build a logging board.

Please help me,

I need ideas for this project, hope you guys can help.

Thanks a lot in advance.

First, you need to know what type of tag you will be reading. There are several different types that work on different frequencies. Then look here:http://www.sparkfun.com/categories/144 and see if any of the readers are compatible. Looks like most of these readers spit out a serial stream, be it USB or 232.  Use the Arduino to parse the data.
