JMRI Compatible RFID System

When I started to think about using RFID tags and readers to identify my rolling stock for various purposes, I searched the net high and low for easy to understand layman’s setup information. Basically I wanted to interface my RFID readers with JMRI.

The JMRI page on that topic is very abstract and I wasn’t able to get any ID into JMRI. So my plan is to tackle that problem during the next weeks and write about my research here.

The primary goal will be providing a step to step guide to integrate cheap RFID RS522 Boards via (daisychained) Arduino(-s) into JMRI in such way, that JMRI’s inbuilt functionality can be used to route cars on any layout.

There will be a German version if this page too.
