The book is only 28 pages, so it’s more of a long tutorial than a book, but it still acts as a good introduction to RFID.
What devices are turned on at any given time depends largely on which of us is here, and what we’re doing.
This project is a system to reduce our power consumption, particularly when we’re not there.
When either of us comes into the room, all we have to do is tap our key fobs on a reader mounted by the door, and the room turns on or off what we normally use. The reader by the door reads the presence or absence of the tags.
If you never did malware analysis before, the material presented can be overwhelming.
It’s not easy to immediately put what you learned into action (you might understand a subject theoretically but might not be comfortable enough with the subject to put it into practice).
Disclaimer: I received this book for free through the O’Reilly Blogger program. is a very short “book” on RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), a way to tag and identify objects over varying ranges, and how to use Arduino to create a few interesting RFID projects.
The book assumes that you have some experience with Arduino and micro-controllers (i.e., do you know what a breadboard, jumper wires, and circuits are? We start with a very brief introduction to RFID, follow up with two introductory technical tutorials on Arduino, and end with a fairly simple home automation project: Between my officemate and me, we have dozens of devices drawing power in our office: two laptops, two monitors, four or five lamps, a few hard drives, a soldering iron, Ethernet hubs, speakers, and so forth.
The Center for Platelet Research Studies is an internationally recognized multidisciplinary center for the study of platelet function by state of the art methods.
The Center undertakes basic, translational, and clinical research, including clinical trials of drugs, devices, and tests.
A major interest of the Center is antiplatelet therapy for the treatment of thrombosis: basic mechanisms, standardization of monitoring assays, and clinical outcomes.
In addition to the pursuit of our academic interests, we perform studies in collaboration with pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, and instrumentation companies.
