|Project Title:||RFID Tag and Reader Technologies at UHF Band for Logistics Management|
|Hosting Institution:||The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK)|
|Abstract:||To develop the core technologies in RFID tags and readers and the related network middleware and to apply the RFID technology to logistics management, the proposed research will investigate most of practical issues in building a RFID systems and its network implementation. The emphasis of the project is placed on developing active RFID systems at UHF frequency band. On the top of system, an advanced logistics management platform will be implemented and tested in a cross docking environments.
In addition to integrating existing technologies into the prototype systems, several key technologies will be developed in the project. Novel tag antennas for metal and water content environments; novel use of multilayer flexible PCB substrate for tags; low cost electronically steering antenna array for readers; new anti-collision method implemented in the readers; RFID networking using IEEE802.11 technology; and a supply/demand, shipment/receive pegging network based on RFID technology.
It is believed that with the development of RFID technology, people can further explore other business opportunities in, for example, more efficient ways to control the logistic flow in PRD region, new methods of counterfeit prevention and the manufacturing industry for making low cost RFID tags and readers.
