Abstract

In recent years, the Global Positioning System (GPS) has been commonly employed for outdoor positioning and location tracking. On the other hand, there has also been growing interest in developing indoor location tracking systems. Advancements in radio frequency identification (RFID) technology make it a promising technology for use in indoor location tracking systems. In this paper, we present an RFID-based location tracking system using a peer-to-peer (P2P) network architecture, which can provide flexibility for system implementation and cost-effectiveness for system maintenance. The proposed system employs active RFID technology to estimate the location of users/objects, and ZigBee to build a P2P network for communication purposes. It can be used for various purposes, such as asset management and customer relationship management.
