Automating RFID reader testing
We are trying to automate RFID card reader testing, normally we test bunch of cards (40 to 50) by placing it in front of the reader and seeing if the data from reader matches the expected data. I want to automate this whole test (esp the card placement part)
For 5 to 10 cards we can make a small wheel with arms (controlled by a stepper motor) and attach one card in each arm and rotate the arm so that card comes in front of the reader but if we have to do the same for 40 cards it becomes complex.
Are there any devices or solutions to automate this? New ideas are also welcome.
The credit-card shaped ChameleonMini is a versatile tool for practical NFC and RFID security analysis, compliance and penetration tests, and various end-user applications. The freely programmable platform can create perfect clones of various existing commercial smartcards, including cryptographic functions and the Unique Identifier (UID). It can be employed to assess security aspects in RFID and NFC environments in different attack scenarios, such as replay or relay attacks, state restoration attacks, sniffing of NFC communication, or functional tests of RFID equipment. New firmware for the ChameleonMini can be comfortably uploaded via a USB bootloader. A convenient, human-readable command set allows to configure its behavior and update the settings and content of up to eight internally stored, virtualized contactless cards. During battery-powered stand-alone operation, the integrated buttons and LEDs enable user interaction and feedback.
