  • We propose a support system for finding lost objects indoors. The system employs active RFID and ultrasonic position detection to detect the position of a lost object. The system illuminates the position by using Movinglight, which is normally employed in stage lighting. From an experiment, the way of notification by light is better than that by sound in some situations.
