Abstract

This paper proposes a method that enables self-recognition of a mobile vehicle's current position by utilizing ultrahigh frequency (UHF) passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags. The proposed method can be used in real industry environments such as complex storage warehouses where many different goods are dispersed throughout a wide area. In particular, the proposed method makes use of two UHF RFID readers with identical emission configuration attached to a vehicle to identify a reference RFID tag. By utilizing the received signal strength indicator obtained by the readers from the reference RFID tag, the precise position of the moving vehicle can be obtained. The experiments prove the effectiveness of the proposed method in accurately estimating the vehicle position.
