Method and System for Determining the Placement of RFID Antennas to Obtain a Readable Region for RFID Tags通過測定RFID天線位置來獲得RFID被動式標籤可讀區域的方法,

An apparatus and system for automatically placing of RFID antennas and method for obtaining a readable region for passive RFID Tags is disclosed. The Apparatus and System include a Portable and Adjustable Mounting Framework (PAMF) with built in chain belt for holding the RFID antennas, an Antenna Position Controller (APC) and Antenna Position Holder (APH) for control the movement of the antennas, a Moveable Object Platform (MOP) for carrying a number of RFID tags and a Computer Integrated System with Readable Region Analysis (RRA) software to capture the transmitted and received signal from/to the RFID reader. The height and width of the PAMF can be adjusted according to the application requirements. The PAMF consists of three poles; each pole can be attached with a RFID antenna. The Antenna can be moved along the PAMF by the attached computer controlled APH mechanism. The APC can command the APH in up/down or left/right direction movement as well as rotating the signal receiving surface of the antenna in different angles. A set of passive RFID tags can be moved around in a predefined region via the computerized MOP, which consists of sets of wheels moving in different directions.
