RFID indoor positioning system based on read rate measurement information

Yuriy B. Gimpilevich, D. A. Savochkin


In this article we present a brief description of the developed radio frequency identification system for indoor objects positioning. The possibility of using measurement information of integral read rate types is described. It is experimentally determined that localization accuracy obtained using mean read rate measurement information is comparable to one obtained using received signal strength measurement information. This result allows us to eliminate measurement of signals power characteristics which leads to possibility of using structurally simpler readers.
