Beginning NFC: Near Field Communication with Arduino, Android, and PhoneGap

Tom Igoe, Don Coleman, Brian Jepson


bounce into the realm of close to box Communications (Nfc), the fast-growing know-how that shall we units in shut proximity alternate information, utilizing radio indications. With plenty of examples, pattern code, workouts, and step by step initiatives, this hands-on consultant indicates you ways to construct Nfc functions for Android, the Arduino microcontroller, and embedded Linux devices.

You’ll write apps utilizing the Nfc info trade layout (Ndef) in PhoneGap, Arduino, and node.js that support units learn messages from passive Nfc tags and trade information with different Nfc-enabled units. for those who be aware of Html and JavaScript, you’re able to begin with Nfc.

  • Dig into Nfc’s structure, and learn the way it’s on the topic of Rfid
  • Write pattern apps for Android with PhoneGap and its Nfc plugin
  • Dive into Ndef: study latest tag-writer apps and construct your own
  • Listen for and filter out Ndef messages, utilizing PhoneGap occasion listeners
  • Build an entire Android app to manage lighting and tune on your home
  • Create a inn registration app with Arduino, from check-in to door lock
  • Write peer-to-peer Nfc messages among Android devices
  • Explore embedded Linux purposes, utilizing examples on Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone
