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.

f2-sensors-15-15988: Overview of the system.

Mentions: Aiming to alleviate the computing processes in this task, an RFID system is adapted to a laser scanner in [72]. As is demonstrated in this work, RFID provides essential information about the scene under study. This information, stored in RFID tags, is mainly related to the geometry of the basic pieces of furniture where tags are adhered. An overview of this system is shown in Figure 2.
