Peer-to-Peer framework for RFID/non-RFID reader-enabled users
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology can be used for a wide range of applications such as tracking and tracing objects and individuals, localization, collaborative platforms and the like. For portable devices with non-RFID capabilities there is no possibility to allow them to benefit from this technology if no integration platforms are implemented. In this paper we propose an architectural framework in order to enable RFID applications for devices that have non-RFID reading capabilities but a wireless interface. We also propose an application layer time-division-based scheme to allow RFID-enabled devices to scan for RFID tags, preventing reader-to-reader interference and avoiding reading collisions. We depict the system architecture and we perform simulations to compare transmission delay metrics and numerical results are provided.
