Write the data from the map to the MySQL database - Arduino RFID RC522

Program and sketch for Arduino. Write data received from RFID tags and database Mysql

In this article you will find links to a program that connects your Arduino board to a computer via a Port. Next, you scan the ID card and enter data such as Last Name, First Name of the student or employee and save everything in the database. Now, when scanning a card, data about the person who provided it will be displayed.

This system can be used in a very large area, fitness centers for customer registration, passes at various enterprises and much more...
