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.
