Indoor locating and inventory management based on RFID-Radar detecting data
The new generation RFID-Radar system provides the function of detecting the targets' locations with the measurements of range and angle using a reader and an antenna array to transmit and receive the RF signals. It enhances the application value for RFID when combined with the geospatial information. In this study, an information system embedded with a plan coordinate detection function was developed using the spatial data provided by the RFID-Radar system, to expand the application of indoor locating and meet the inventory management requirements. The in-house developed management system can work for processing the measurements detected by the RFID-Radar system, calculating the target's location, checking the target's status and analyzing the target's movement occurring between the two detecting epochs through a designed GUI (graphical user interface). The system has been tested to show an internal precision of 0.76 m for locating, based on the stability test of the range and angle measurements, and effectively demonstrates the functions for detecting the target's movement and archiving the inventory's management information with a database.
