Gesture Detection Using Passive RFID Tags to Enable People-Centric IoT Applications

2017 IEEE Communications Magazine  
Our society may enhance and create new services in a people-centric IoT context through the exchange of information with sensor devices. Unfortunately, attackers might compromise the communication and current intelligent objects with sensor capabilities, are expensive (i.e. smartphone). Within the technologies involved in the IoT paradigm, passive Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) allows the inventorying of simple objects towards a wireless communication with a low-cost investment. We

We demonstrated the feasibility of our proposal by detecting the 95.3% of peopleobject gestures. As a future task, we aim to implement it in a real scenario.
