Beginning NFC: Near Field Communication with Arduino, by Tom Igoe, Brian Jepson, Don Coleman

By Tom Igoe, Brian Jepson, Don Coleman

Bounce into the area of close to box Communications (NFC), the fast-growing know-how that shall we units in shut proximity trade info, utilizing radio indications. With plenty of examples, pattern code, workouts, and step by step tasks, this hands-on advisor exhibits you the way to construct NFC functions for Android, the Arduino microcontroller, and embedded Linux devices.

You’ll how you can write apps utilizing the NFC facts alternate layout (NDEF) in PhoneGap, Arduino, and node.js that support units learn messages from passive NFC tags and alternate info with different NFC-enabled units. in the event you be aware of HTML and JavaScript, you’re able to commence with NFC.

Example text

The first record in a message will have its MB flag set to true. The middle records will have both flags set to false. The end record in a message will have the ME set to true. A message with one record will have both the Message Begin and Message End bits set true. Since there are only eight possible type name formats, you only need 3 bits to store it. The TNF is stored in the last three bits of the Message Flags byte. Record Header NDEF records are variable length data structures. The record header contains the in‐ formation required to read the data.

The SDK doesn’t come with a version of the Android platform tools, so you need to install them by typing the following: $ tools/android update sdk --no-ui On Windows If the Android SDK installer can’t find your Java installation (a common problem on 64-bit Windows), quit the installer, and set your JAVA_HOME environment vari‐ able as directed later in this section. Try the installer again and it should find your Java installation. You’ll be given the opportunity to install the tools when the installer is finished.

The middle records will have both flags set to false. The end record in a message will have the ME set to true. A message with one record will have both the Message Begin and Message End bits set true. Since there are only eight possible type name formats, you only need 3 bits to store it. The TNF is stored in the last three bits of the Message Flags byte. Record Header NDEF records are variable length data structures. The record header contains the in‐ formation required to read the data. An NDEF record begins with the TNF byte, which includes the bit flags.
