We analyze whether radio frequency identification (RFID) technology can be used to improve the localization of mobile robots and persons in their environment. In particular we study the problem of localizing RFID tags with a mobile platform that is equipped with a pair of RFID antennas. We present a probabilistic measurement model for RFID readers that allow us to accurately localize RFID tags in the environment. We also demonstrate how such maps can be used to localize a robot and persons in… Expand

TLDR
The paper shows that it is indeed possible to remove a large percentage of the landmarks from the map without making the map-building process statistically inconsistent and it is shown that the efficiency of the SLAM can be maintained by judicious selection of landmarks, to be preserved in the map, based on their information content.
