  13. 13. An RFID System<br />A step backwards…<br />
  14. 14. An RFID System<br />What must an RFID System do? <br />
  15. 15. An RFID System<br />RFID = Radio FrequencyIDentification<br />Object Identification Technology by Radio Waves<br />RFID <br />System<br />Identification of <br />due objects<br />in a given context <br />in front of a certain event<br />An RFID tag is attached to <br />every object, thus becoming <br />univocally identifiable in the system<br />
  16. 16. RFID Detection System<br />RFID Detection System<br />The goodstobeidentified<br />go throughreading area, usually under a gate, and are detectedbythe system <br />via reading of tagsattached on objectswhich, under the fieldcreatedby the gateantennas, report theiridentity, <br />i.e. their “tagid”<br />Gate<br />Detection Area <br />
  17. 17. An RFID System<br />Tag (or transponder)<br />It is the element attached to items-to-be-identified, containing tag id<br />Antenna<br />Itis the HW part transmitting/receiving<br />radio waves for RFID tag info reading<br />RFID <br />System<br />Reader<br />Connectedtoone or more antennas, it converts electricsignalsintodigitalones, interpreting some of the info read on the tag<br /> Sensors<br /> Detect people/objects passing through, in order <br /> to identify items inside detection area <br /> Middleware<br /> Manages the whole system, processes data <br /> and makes them available to users <br />
  18. 18. The Tag<br />The tag is an object composed by <br /><ul><li>antenna
  19. 19. chip
  20. 20. support</li></ul>antenna<br />I.C. (memory, logic & TX/RX circuits)<br />plastic support<br />

  34. 34. RFID Middleware<br />
  35. 35. .onID<br />Tag Writing<br />Antennas<br />Reader<br />.onID manages the <br />whole RFID system<br />Sensors<br />Detection Area<br />
  36. 36. .onID<br />.onID allows abstraction of <br />HW under use<br />Each reader becomes just a data source, <br />all readers are roughly equivalent<br />At the same time it is possible to profit from each reader peculiarities (e.g.: Alien’s ITR)<br />
  37. 37. .onID<br />Thanks to .onID<br /><ul><li> it is possible to limit detection fields
  38. 38. sensor networks can bedirectlyinterfaced with .onID
  39. 39. it is feasible to reducedependence from specific readers by avoiding their use as sensor “managers”</li></li></ul><li>Middleware decodes datum <br /> Datum decoding & transformation<br />One of RFID middleware tasks is to make the decoded datum available to the external system<br />In brief, to all effects, it is as though the datum were written on the tag<br />This is why .onID is on-line with EPCglobal<br />
