Efficient memoryless protocol for tag identification

  title={Efficient memoryless protocol for tag identification},
  author={Ching Law and Kayi Lee and Kai-Yeung Siu},
This paper presents an efficient collision resolution protocol and its variations for the tag identification problem, where an electromagnetic reader attempts to obtain within is read range the unique ID number of each tag. The novelty of our main protocol is that each tag is memoryless, i.e., the current response of each tag only depends on the current query of the reader but not on the past history of the reader's queries. Moreover, the only computation required for each tag is to match its… CONTINUE READING
