Mobile RFID, the technology of a cellular phone equipped with a RFID reader, allows users to read RFID tags anywhere. However, signals from more than two readers can interfere with one another, i.e., reader collision problem; reliable tag reading is necessary. This paper proposes Gentle protocol to use beacon messages and multi-channel for increasing throughput. In addition, Gentle protocol can put tag ID information into the beacon message and share it among close readers. Simulation results… CONTINUE READING
