We describe the development of a millifluidic based scanning droplet cell platform for rapid and automated corrosion. This system allows for measurement of corrosion properties (e.g., open circuit potential, corrosion current through Tafel and linear polarization resistance measurements, and cyclic voltammograms) on a localized section of a planar sample. Our system is highly automated and flexible allowing for scripted changing and mixing of solutions and point-to-point motion on the sample. We have also created an automated data analysis pipeline. Here we demonstrate this tool by corroding a plate of electroplated \ceZn85Ni15} alloy at a range of pH and correlate our results with XPS measurements and literature.
