The latest release of XOJO includes remote debugging for RPi.

Well worth considering if you deploy binary apps, services and web servers to the RPi.

Re: Embedded Web Servers

OP what you are describing is NOT an embedded web server ! My services on RPi are deployed as a single binary executable plus a few libraries. You start it up and point your browser at it and it renders a HTML interface. There are no folders, no HTML pages and no configuration, unless you want it to...

Re: Can I accomplish this with a Pi?

Sure you could do it. But I'm not sure you'd be happy with the outcome! The RPi is great for multi tasking, but not so great at concentrating one doing just one thing - it gets distracted with other tasks, so you might have the odd timing issues. You might be better looking at a micro controller for...

I have an RPI talking to a nano over the USB and it is just typical serial comms. Where do you have the issue?

Yes the hardware capability is there, but you are lacking context to make sense of the random bytes you are picking up? The further you are from the reader the more context you need to make reliable reads.

Re: Build a RFID Reader

Well there are plenty of starter kits on the market that includes the bits and bobs you need to get started on understanding the techniques. But you need to understanding that stationary proximity to the reader is what helps you identify the card to read... so trying to read multiple cards from a di...
