RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a technology that uses electromagnetic fields to identify objects in a contactless way; it is also called proximity identification. There are 2 elements in RFID communications: the RFID module (or reader/writer device) and an RFID card (or tag). The RFID module acts as the master and the card acts as the slave; this means the module queries the card and sends instructions to it. In a normal RFID communication, the RFID module is fixed and the user takes his card near it when he needs to start the interaction.

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a technology that uses electromagnetic fields to identify objects in a contactless way; itĀ is also called proximity identification.
There are 2 elements in RFID communications: the RFID module (or reader/writer device)Ā and an RFID card (or tag). The RFID module acts as the master and the card acts as the slave; this means the module queries theĀ card and sends instructions to it. In a normal RFID communication, the RFID module is fixed and the user takes his card near itĀ when he needs to start the interaction.
This tutorial allows the user to change keys on RFID cards. Also you can read the cards if the key is correct. Each button has a function assigned: enter to change key mode (then you can write your new key with this 4 buttons), save new key and read card.
This tutorial allows the user to store the measure taken from the LDR in the RFID cards. When 8 measures has been taken, the RFID module will read them and they will be shown on the Serial monintor.
This tutorial allows the user to indentify different cards associated to several people. If they are close to an antenna, RFID card will save how many times that person has been there.
The Multiprotocol Radio Shield is an interconnection shield for Arduino, and was designed to connect two communication modules at the same time. This that means a lot of possibilities and applications can be made using the cooking-hacks modules.
The Multiprotocol Radio Shield includes the SPI bus connections that allows the use of the RS-485 and CAN Bus modules, but also is compatible with the rest of the cooking-hacks modules as RFID, XBee and Bluetooth.
The current tutorial explains how to take the most of the Galileo board by using on it the Arduino and Raspberry Pi shields and modules designed by Cooking Hacks
Galileo comes with a single-core 32-bit, 400MHz Quark SoC X1000 processor, supports 3.3 or 5 volt shields and has an Ethernet and USB port. Compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux, the software of Galileo also has support for the Arduino shield ecosystem.
The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi.
It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry.
