1. Project background

The access control system is one of the very important security control systems in modern society. Its function is to provide convenience for legal users while ensuring the safety of buildings. Currently designing an access control system design based on STM32+RC522, the registration, identification and identity verification of user cards are realized through the RFID-RC522 module, and the switch of the door lock is realized by controlling the SG90 steering gear, which has high security and reliability. Experimental results show that the access control system can effectively guarantee the safety of buildings.

The access control system is widely used in various buildings, enterprises and institutions to manage the entry and exit of personnel, control the scope of personnel activities, and realize security monitoring and other functions. Traditional access control systems use password input or swiping cards for identity verification, but there is a risk of being easily cracked. The access control system based on RFID has become a relatively advanced security control scheme.

The STM32+RC522 access control system designed this time registers and identifies the user's card through the RFID-RC522 module to complete the identification and switch the door lock. The system has an OLED display. After entering the user password to log in, you can register new cards, add new cards, and log out unused cards. In the system, the data of the IC card is stored in the internal sector of the card and managed through the internal space of the card.

2. System design

The access control system is composed of STM32F103C8T6 microcontroller, RFID-RC522 module, SG90 steering gear, LCD1602 liquid crystal display, keyboard module, etc. Among them, the STM32F103C8T6 single-chip microcomputer is used as the core controller of the system to control the execution of the program; the RFID-RC522 module is used as a device for identifying user cards; the SG90 steering gear is used as a door lock control device; the OLED display screen provides user input information and system information display; the keyboard The module is convenient for users to input password and card information.

2.1 Software Design

【1】RFID card information management

This system uses the internal space of the card to manage the IC card information. Each IC card can be divided into multiple sectors, each sector contains multiple blocks, and each block contains 16 bytes. Sector 0 is reserved by the manufacturer to store the serial number of the card. Sectors 1-15 can be configured by the user to store some private data, such as user identity, license plate number, employee number, etc.

In this system, the management of IC card information mainly includes three aspects: new card registration, card identification and card cancellation.

For the registration of a new card, the user needs to press the "#" key on the keyboard to enter the registration mode, then enter the administrator password, and then put the new card on the RFID reader, the system will read the serial number of the card and record it on the card The user name and password information, etc. are stored in the sector.

For card identification, when the user presses the confirmation key of the access control system, the system will read the card serial number read in the RFID module, and query the user name and password information in the card sector for identity verification. If the card recognition is successful, the system will control the steering gear to rotate one circle to realize the unlocking function.

For card cancellation, the administrator needs to enter the password for identity verification, and then put the card to be canceled on the RFID reader, and the system will clear all the data in the sector of the card.

【2】Access control system security control

The access control system adopts the combination of password verification and card identification, which improves the security of the system. Specifically, the system requires the user to enter a password or swipe a card for identity verification, and only after the verification is successful can the door lock be controlled to open and close. At the same time, the system can also record the time and user information of each unlocking of the door, so that the administrator can carry out security monitoring.

【3】Door lock control

The access control system adopts SG90 steering gear to control the switch of the door lock, which has the advantages of simple structure and convenient control. In the door lock control process, the system finely controls the frequency and duty cycle of the steering gear control signal to achieve accurate switch of the door lock.
