Design and Implementation of RFID-Based Object Locator

T. S. Chou and J. W. S. Liu


An object locator is a device designed to assist its user in finding misplaced household and personal objects in a home. This paper describes alternative designs and a proof-of-concept prototype of object locators based on the RFID technology. Advantages of such locators include extensibility and low maintenance. The numeric model provided here can be used to determine figures of merits, including costs, search time and energy consumption. The results of analysis based on the model can serve as design guides.
