by Parmar, Aniketh M., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 44; 1472242
Abstract (Summary)

Technology is the cutting edge in today's world. Every possible business unit is looking for indulgence of technology to carry out their business process. There are few technologies that have been over looked for years but they are now gaining researcher's attention. One such rich valued technology is Radio frequency Identification (RFID). RFID has recently gained attention in most of the field's like medicine and tracking industry.

The present research in the world of Radio Frequency identification (RFID) allows us to read the RFID tag but does not provide any thorough solution for locating an RFID tagged object. In this thesis we propose and implement a method that allows us to locate an object using RFID technology. Prior section of the thesis gives in depth understanding of RFID technology and explains the security issues related to RFID at the same time proposes methods how security can be tighten so that the technology can be made more adaptive in the today's competent industry. Later section explains theoretical concept of locating an RFID tagged object and implements this concept using SKYETEK M9 developer kit. This system is designed keeping in mind the industrial requirements of achieving these standards accurately and in highly cost effective manner.
