Reading and Uploading the Sequence

The sequence in the tag is read using the RFID reader. The reader is interfaced with a PC through the serial port. The sequence read from the tag is uploaded using the POST method(about which I’ve already posted, click here).

The first step is to open a port with baudrate 9600 bps, no parity and one stop bit.

  • def port_open():
  • ser = serial.Serial(0)
  • s =
  • return s
  • seq = port_open()
The next step is to encode the sequence in the url. It is done using POST method. The sequence is encoded with the url as parameters of the url. Also a connection with the server is established using ‘httplib.HTTPConnection()’.
  • from urllib import urlencode
  • params = urlencode({‘sequence’:sequence,’place’:’kannur’,’time’:’12.00′})
  • headers = {“Content-Type”:”application/x-www-form-urlencoded”,”Accept”:”text/plain”}
  • conn = httplib.HTTPConnection(“”)
  • conn.request(“POST”,”/”,params,headers)
