oDroid C1 & USB RFID Reader

Unread post by elestuf » Tue Apr 09, 2019 12:22 am

Hello

Looking for some help/advice. We are trialling an oDroid C1 and are trying to connect a USB RFID reader to it, however cannot get it to work. There is light on the reader and you can hear it beep when you scan a card however nothing seems to get picked up on the oDroid. Just wondering if this could maybe be a power issue??? The model of the RFID reader is a MT850.

Any ideas?

TIA

Since I do not have MT850, not sure...just wondering how the device works on Linux system.
What's the device type of MT850 when it's attached to a Linux system, like an input subsystem or USB device?
Isn't it required to use like libNFC?

I'm guessing it will appear as a keyboard and should be visible with evtest
