Bluebot: Asset tracking via robotic location crawling

Abhishek Patil, Jonathan Munson, David Wood, Alan Cole
2008 Computer Communications  
Asset tracking -knowing what you have and where it is located -is essential for the smooth operation of many enterprises.  ...  The system employs a robot, with an attached RFID reader, which periodically crawls the space, associating items it detects with its own location determined with the Wi-Fi positioning system.  ...  The BlueBot System BlueBot Setup Figure 8: BlueBot Setup Our system uses the Roomba Robotic Floorvac [10] as the robot that moves autonomously in the sweep space.  ...
