RFID-based Localization and Tracking Technologies
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has gained traction as a way to locate and track resources, particularly in disciplines such enterprise supply chain management. This paper looks at various models for employing cost-effective RFID chips to support your location-based technologies.
Among its many applications, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is widely used in enterprise supply chain management to improve the efficiency of inventory tracking and management. The relatively low cost of RFID technologies — an RFID tag can cost under 50 U.S. cents, much less than general-purpose wireless sensor nodes — makes RFID a popular candidate for localization and tracking.
This paper by researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology and The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology presents an overview of RFID-based localization and tracking technologies, including tag-based (e.g., LANDMARC), reader-based (e.g., reverse RFID), transceiver-free and hybrid approaches.
