RFID explained : a primer on radio frequency identification technologies by Roy Want( )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This lecture provides an introduction to Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), a technology enabling automatic identification of objects at a distance without requiring line-of-sight. Electronic tagging can be divided into technologies that have a power source (active tags), and those that are powered by the tag interrogation signal (passive tags); the focus here is on passive tags. An overview of the principles of the technology divides passive tags into devices that use either near field or far field coupling to communicate with a tag reader. The strengths and weaknesses of the approaches are considered, along with the standards that have been put in place by ISO and EPCGlobal to promote interoperability and the ubiquitous adoption of the technology. A section of the lecture has been dedicated to the principles of reading co-located tags, as this represents a significant challenge for a technology that may one day be able to automatically identify all of the items in your shopping cart in a just few seconds. In fact, RFID applications are already quite extensive and this lecture classifies the primary uses. Some variants of modern RFID can also be integrated with sensors enabling the technology to be extended to measure parameters in the local environment, such as temperature & pressure. The uses and applications of RFID sensors are further described and classified. Later we examine important lessons surrounding the deployment of RFID for the Wal-Mart and the Metro AG store experiences, along with deployments in some more exploratory settings. Extensions of RFID that make use of read/write memory integrated with the tag are also discussed, in particular looking at novel near term opportunities. Privacy and social implications surrounding the use of RFID inspire recurring debates whenever there is discussion of large scale deployment; we examine the pros and cons of the issues and approaches for mitigating the problems. Finally, the remaining challenges of RFID are considered and we look to the future possibilities for the technology

Context-aware computing applications by B Schilit( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: "This paper describes systems that examine and react to an individual's changing context. Such systems can promote and mediate people's interactions with devices, computers, and other people, and they can help navigate unfamiliar places. We believe that a limited amount of information covering a person's proximate environment is most important for this form of computing since the interesting part of the world around us is what we can see, hear, and touch. In this paper we define context- aware computing, and describe four categories of context-aware applications: proximate selection, automatic contextual reconfiguration, contextual information and commands, and context-triggered actions. Instances of these application types have been prototyped on the PARCTAB, a wireless, palm-sized computer."

SwitchR : reducing system power consumption in a multi-client, multi-radio environment by Yuvraj Agarwal( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Multiple wireless network interfaces in a single mobile device exist in order to support their diverse communications and networking needs. These heterogeneous networks can be used to reduce power consumption, and thus extend the battery life of a mobile device, by enabling dynamic switching of radio interfaces depending on application requirements. This paper proposes a general switching architecture, SwitchR, for managing radio communications for multiple (client) devices utilizing multiple heterogeneous radios per device. To be effective and useful, the radio switching must be transparent to applications, and should be deployable incrementally within existing wireless infrastructures. The SwitchR framework considers the load imposed on the wireless channel by other communicating clients in order to make optimal switching decisions. We show that the resulting switching policy successfully handles multiple clients and reduces the energy consumption of all participating devices. We demonstrate reduction in energy consumption of a mobile device by 47% - 72%, depending upon the application, over the Power Save Mode in WiFi. SwitchR also leads to 13% - 60% reduction in energy consumption over previous multi-radio architectures that do not consider the interactions between multiple clients. Furthermore, we present a detailed analysis of how radio-switching affects applications, such as VoIP, that are commonly targeted for mobile devices
