RFID sniffer

RFID sniffer

About this project

RFID is everywhere. Use the easy to build RFID sniffer to find out if objects are tagged.
The RFID sniffer is a simple analog electronic circuit which can detect the presence of 13.56 MHz RFID tags. These tags are commonly used in all kinds of plastic cards like access badges, bank cards, library cards, loyalty cards and so on. Also many other objects may carry RFID tags without you knowing it. Books, toys, and even clothing might be tagged. Carrying tagged objects with you can reveal your identity or whereabouts to anyone equipped with the appropiate tools to read RFID tags.
The RFID sniffer helps you identify which objects are tagged, and which are not.

RFIDuino is a Arduino shield which can read and write 13.56 MHz ISO-14443A (Mifare) RFID tags. It plugs upside-down on top of a Arduino, maintaining a 20mm board to board spacing. Mounting hardware and assembly instructions are included.
Free Arduino code library available soon. Here's a simple example to read tag ids.

The RFDIduino kit is now available at shop.marcboon.com.

Any plans to make this a bit more powerful? Perhaps reading tags a meter away?

hi, will you release the files? It would be nice to see how this works.

Great! I've just ordered this kit!

I wonder if Test Software from "Tinker.it Rfid arduino" works with this RFIDuino

Great job! thank you! I'm going to get a RFIDuino. Do you have a technical spec of RFIDuino? It would be much appreciated if you can write some examples to WRITE on tags.
