Object tracking with RFID

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper reports a new method for visual tracking of humans using active RFID technology. Previous studies were based on the assumption that the radio intensity from an RFID tag will be linearly proportional to the distance between the tag and the antenna or will remain unchanged; however, in reality, the intensity fluctuates significantly and changes drastically with a small change in the environment. The proposed method helps to overcome this problem by using only accurate binary information that reveals whether the target person is close to the antenna. Several experimental results have shown that the information from the RFID tag was useful for reliable tracking of humans.
