Hi All, I am currently working on a downhill mountain bike race timing system based on a Mega 2560 with a real time clock and an lcd display. The Ardunio will be located at the finish line and will be directly connected to an RFID reader and an Xbee. Connected to another Xbee will be another RFID reader located at the start line. The problem is I dont know how to spec the RFID system for my application. Ideally the antenna would be contained in a 2m x 0.5m mat and the system would be able to read Tags upto 0.5m above the mat that are travelling at a velocity of up to 10 m/s. It would only have to read one Tag at any one time. All I have seen in relentless googling is complete turn-key timing systems for huge amounts of money. Thank you in advance for advice or suggestions, it will be very much appreciated!-Jason

I used to design RFID readers for a living
a battery activated passive tag
short range transmitter
Does this sound realistic or is it back to the drawing board again?
