A Hybrid Approach of RFID and WSN System for Efficient Data Collection
Abstract—Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) are two significant wireless technologies. RFID and WSNs are well known both identification and data transmission they are widely used in applications for environmental and health monitoring. Though the integration of RFID and WSNs fascinates little attention from the research community. In this paper, a Hybrid RFID and WSN system (HRW) that cooperatively integrates the traditional RFID and WSN systems for efficient data collection in large-scale mobile monitoring applications. HRW has hybrid smart nodes that combine the function of RFID tags, the minimized function of RFID readers, and wireless sensors. Hence, nodes can read each other‘s sensed data in tags, and all data can be rapidly transmitted to an RFID reader through the node that first extends it. The RFID readers transmit the collected data to the back-end servers for data processing and management. The result of the proposed method improves the performance of HRW in terms of the cost of arrangement, transmission suspends, capability and tags capacity requirement.
