RFID technology is widely used in the Internet of Things (IoT) environment for object tracking. With the expansion of its application areas, the demand for reliability of business data is increasingly important. In order to fulfil the needs of upper-level applications, data cleaning is essential and directly affects the correctness and completeness of the business data, so it needs to filter and handle RFID data. The traditional statistical smoothing for unreliable RFID data (SMURF) algorithm…

Time Series Data Cleaning with Regular and Irregular Time Intervals
This survey provides a classification of time series data cleaning techniques and comprehensively reviews the state-of-the-art methods of each type, with a special focus on the irregular time intervals.
LOCATER: Cleaning WiFi Connectivity Datasets for Semantic Localization
The paper shows that LOCATER can achieve significantly high accuracy at both the coarse and fine levels, and uses a bootstrapping semi-supervised learning method for coarse localization and a probabilistic method to achieve finer localization.
Detect and correlate information system events through verbose logging messages analysis
A novel methodology was proposed to tackle a major limitation in current processes of Event Logging analysis by analysing event messages through a Natural Language Processing task in order to annotate them with semantic metadata.

Cost-Conscious Cleaning of Massive RFID Data Sets
This paper proposes a cleaning framework that takes an RFID data set and a collection of cleaning methods and induces a cleaning plan that optimizes the overall accuracy-adjusted cleaning costs by determining the conditions under which inexpensive methods are appropriate, and those under which more expensive methods are absolutely necessary.
Managing RFID Data: Challenges, Opportunities and Solutions
The research progress in RFID with anti-collision algorithms, authentication and privacy protection protocols, localization and activity sensing, as well as performance tuning in realistic settings is investigated.
Adaptive cleaning for RFID data streams
SMURF is proposed, the first declarative, adaptive smoothing filter for RFID data cleaning, which models the unreliability of RFID readings by viewing RFID streams as a statistical sample of tags in the physical world, and exploits techniques grounded in sampling theory to drive its cleaning processes.
