Real-time Location System with Passive RFID for surveillance of trusted objects in a room

ID: LIU-IDA/LITH-EX-A--10/048--SE

The use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) in Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) in asset management has been in limited use, mainly in large organizations such as hospitals and military. The research in this area is making progress and new solutions with reduced costs with greater resolution are presented by different companies that enable the technology to be used in new operating areas. This thesis is about the development, implementation and integration of a RTLS solution that enables surveillance of the position of keys. The RTLS solution utilizes RTLS hardware to receive the positions of the keys. The report describes how the RTLS hardware is selected and how the software solution is designed and implemented. The report describes also result of how the finished solution with software and hardware cooperates. The most vital problem was to create an efficient zone structure that implements the surveillance hierarchy of the keys. The thesis was conducted at a company (PAAM Systems) that offers solutions in access and asset management. The company aims to use a RTLS in an asset management application for keys. The purpose of this work is to examine the existing solutions on the market that provide a RTLS with passive RFID technology.

Keywords: RTLS, RFID, System Implementation, Location, Data Storage
