Localizing Tags Using Mobile Infrastructure [chapter]

Ying Zhang, Kurt Partridge, Jim Reich
Location- and Context-Awareness  
Mobile infrastructure consists of one or more sensors in a fixed configuration on a mobile platform, and a set of tags affixed to objects or locations in the environment which the users want to localize  ...  Mobile infrastructure can cover a much larger area than installed infrastructure with the same number of sensors, and is especially useful in cases where localization hardware costs are asymmetric, with  ...  Patrick Cheung for helping to build the mobile sensor infrastructure.  ...

Indoor Localization Systems — Tracking Objects and Personnel with Sensors, Wireless Networks and RFID

Huanjia Yang, Shuang-Hua Yang
2009 Measurement and control (London. 1968)  
The Passive-RF technologies are further divided into "Mobile tag" and "Mobile reader" systems. We expect such classification can cover most of the indoor localization systems.  ...  In this paper we will introduce the primary technologies used in indoor localization systems by classifying them in three categories: Non-RF technologies, Active-RF technologies and Passive-RF technologies  ...  This leads to another infrastructure for passive RFID localization technology, the "Mobile reader" infrastructure.  ...

GOSSIPY: A distributed localization system for Internet of Things using RFID technology

Lobna M. Eslim, Walid M. Ibrahim, Hossam S. Hassanein
2013 2013 IEEE Global Communications Conference (GLOBECOM)  
In existing localization systems using RFID technology, there is a lack of systems that localize mobile tags using heterogeneous mobile readers in a distributed manner.  ...  In this paper, we propose the GOSSIPY system for localizing mobile RFID tags using a group of ad hoc heterogeneous mobile RFID readers.  ...  System Components and Used Notations Given an RFID system of n tags and m mobile readers, we consider a two-dimensional localization problem of the tags using the mobile readers in an outdoor area.  ...

Controlling Error Propagation in Mobile-Infrastructure Based Localization [chapter]

Ying Zhang, Juan Liu
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper proposes a computationally efficient error control mechanism to mitigate the error propagation effect for mobile-infrastructure based localization.  ...  The key idea is for a node to localize itself using its anchor neighbors, and then become an anchor for other unknown neighbors.  ...  Patrick Cheung for helping to build the mobile sensor infrastructure.  ...

Indoor deployment of a wireless sensor network for inventory and localization of mobile assets

Mathieu Huchard, Vivien Paquier, Adrien Loeillet, Vladimir Marangozov, Jean-Michel Nicolai
2012 2012 IEEE International Conference on RFID-Technologies and Applications (RFID-TA)  
The system is based on the IEEE 802.15.4 standard at 2.4 GHz and the localization scheme is based on RSSI measurements between mobile tags and an infrastructure of reference nodes located in the ceiling  ...  In this paper, we present experimental results of the deployment of a wireless sensor network for inventory and localization of mobile assets in an indoor office building.  ...  The specificity of this protocol is to be very energy efficient, multi-hop and use a hierarchical mesh tree topology. The same hardware is used as reference nodes and as mobile tags.  ...

A comparison of human body compensation models for RSSI based localization and tracking

Jens Trogh, David Plets, Arno Thielens, Luc Martens, Wout Joseph
2016 2016 IEEE International Smart Cities Conference (ISC2)  
This phenomenon is also known as human body shadowing and to cope with this effect, human body compensation models are used.  ...  The presence of such a user can block the radio-frequency (RF) signal paths between a body-worn node and the fixed infrastructure nodes.  ...  The mobile tags broadcast packets that are received by the fixed infrastructure, where the measured RSSI values are logged.  ...

Super-distributed RFID Tag Infrastructures [chapter]

Jürgen Bohn, Friedemann Mattern
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We show that such an approach opens up a whole spectrum of possibilities for creating novel RFID-based services and applications, including a new means of cooperation between mobile physical entities.  ...  With the emerging mass production of very small, cheap Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags, it is becoming feasible to deploy such tags on a large scale.  ...  We would also like to thank Marco Bär for his work on the collaborative map-making prototype and Hitachi SDL for providing us with mu-chips and tag readers.  ...

The Value of Handhelds in Smart Environments [chapter]

Frank Siegemund, Christian Floerkemeier, Harald Vogt
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We identify the means by which smart objects can make use of handheld devices such as PDAs and mobile phones, and derive the following major roles of handhelds in smart environments: (1) mobile infrastructure  ...  We present concrete applications that illustrate these roles, and describe how handhelds can serve as mobile mediators between computer-augmented everyday artifacts, their users, and background infrastructure  ...  As tags are usually read out by a mobile user device, the actual application is implemented on the handheld or the backend infrastructure, but not on the tag.  ...

2016 2016 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC)  
Secondly, the processed data, events or agents' results are transferred with the agent in the system or communicated using infrastructure if available.  ...  The close physical proximity requirement of the tag to the nodes makes this method less vulnerable to attacks than infrastructure-based methods.  ...  Passive RFID tags are used in [12] as a localization and event data storage method, cooperatively with mobile sensors, which reduces the memory requirement for the mobile nodes.  ...
