An indoor location tracking based on mobile RFID for smart exhibition service


Recently, various smart application services have been developed using GPS (Global Positioning System), RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) and sensor networks. The GPS has been successfully applied for outdoor location tracking by many applications, but it might still be insufficient in an indoor environment where GPS signals are often severely obstructed. The RFID technology has been utilized to play an important role in location tracking for indoor smart applications. Therefore, in this paper, we present the scenario and architecture of an indoor location tracking service for things or space in an exhibition environment based on mobile RFID. The RFID tags of things or spaces are identified as the locations of point being passed and we obtain the spatial data from the tags using mobile RFID readers, Web server and Database server. We have designed and implemented the prototype of location tracking system for exhibition scenario using Microsoft .NET framework. Additionally, we have verified the functionality of this system so various other indoor smart services may be provided using the proposed system.
