A Computational Architecture Based on RFID Sensors for Traceability in Smart Cities.

Mora-Mora H, Gilart-Iglesias V, Gil D, Sirvent-Llamas A - Sensors (Basel) (2015)

Bottom Line: In order to accomplish these tasks, we propose the design of a smart sensor network based on RFID communication technologies, reliability patterns and integration techniques.This knowledge will be useful in moving towards the design of smart cities in which decision support on transport strategies, business evaluation or initiatives in the tourism sector will be supported by real relevant information.As a final result, a case study will be presented which will allow the validation of the proposal.

ABSTRACT
Information Technology and Communications (ICT) is presented as the main element in order to achieve more efficient and sustainable city resource management, while making sure that the needs of the citizens to improve their quality of life are satisfied. A key element will be the creation of new systems that allow the acquisition of context information, automatically and transparently, in order to provide it to decision support systems. In this paper, we present a novel distributed system for obtaining, representing and providing the flow and movement of people in densely populated geographical areas. In order to accomplish these tasks, we propose the design of a smart sensor network based on RFID communication technologies, reliability patterns and integration techniques. Contrary to other proposals, this system represents a comprehensive solution that permits the acquisition of user information in a transparent and reliable way in a non-controlled and heterogeneous environment. This knowledge will be useful in moving towards the design of smart cities in which decision support on transport strategies, business evaluation or initiatives in the tourism sector will be supported by real relevant information. As a final result, a case study will be presented which will allow the validation of the proposal.

sensors-15-13591-f005: Installation and sensor coverage example.

Mentions: According to the features of RFID technology, it is possible to configure readers with coverage radii of several meters [76,77], so each of these readers can cover the sidewalk of a street entirely, as shown in Figure 5. The purpose is that collaboration of citizens for the activation of tags is not required and all they have to do is allow that they be worn on their clothes, carried in a pocket, bag or wallet in a transparent manner and interact as they move without the user being aware of it. Thereby, the tags worn by citizens are activated when they walk down the street and pass by one of the installed antennas.
