Integration of an RFID Reader to a Wireless Sensor Network and Its Use to Identify an Individual Carrying RFID Tags
The objective of this research is to integrate an RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) reader into a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) to authorize or keep track of people carrying RFID tags. The objective was accomplished by integrating hardware and software. The hardware consisted of two WSN nodes the RFID node connected to one of the WSN nodes, and a computer connected to the other WSN node. For the RFID equipment, the authors used the SM130-EK kit, which included the RFID reader and the RFID tags; and for the WSN, they used the Synapse Network Evaluation kit, which included the two sensor nodes.
