I am new to the forums so if I do make a mistake here please feel free to correct me. So me and my group are doing this project, where we have a to design a parking meter with a 7 inch touchscreen with a RFID Scanner. Now the main problem with this project is the power consumption, as we won't get direct sunlight for more then 2-3 hours a day, so we have to use components that consume the least amount of power. Now we are thinking of using a raspberry pi to power this whole project, but I haven't found any RFID Scanner which we can use with it. The current one we have is not compatible with raspberry pi. Its' model SL032 by Stronglink. So my question is can you suggest me a RFID Scanner which is low power consumption, and easily programmable with raspberry pi.
Also the reason I want to find this is because programming with raspberry pi will make my group mates parts easier to program( they have to program the GUI for touchscreen and cloud server to store the data for the admin).
