Evolution of RFID Applications in Construction: A Literature Review.

Valero E, Adán A, Cerrada C - Sensors (Basel) (2015)

Bottom Line: The paper presents the establishment of the RFID technology in four main stages of the lifecycle of a facility: planning and design, construction and commission and operation and maintenance.Concerning this last stage, an RFID application aiming to facilitate the identification of pieces of furniture in scanned inhabited environments is presented.Conclusions and future advances are presented at the end of the paper.

ABSTRACT
Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology has been widely used in the field of construction during the last two decades. Basically, RFID facilitates the control on a wide variety of processes in different stages of the lifecycle of a building, from its conception to its inhabitance. The main objective of this paper is to present a review of RFID applications in the construction industry, pointing out the existing developments, limitations and gaps. The paper presents the establishment of the RFID technology in four main stages of the lifecycle of a facility: planning and design, construction and commission and operation and maintenance. Concerning this last stage, an RFID application aiming to facilitate the identification of pieces of furniture in scanned inhabited environments is presented. Conclusions and future advances are presented at the end of the paper.

Mentions: An RFID system (see Figure 1) is mainly composed of a transceiver (called the reader) connected to an antenna and a set of transponders or tags, where information is stored [14]. The transceiver communicates with a computer by means of an application, which manages the data stored in the tags.
