The emerging ubiquitous computing technology that belongs to the group of automatic identification technologies and has become popular is the Radio Frequency IDentification system involving electromagnetic theory for identifying human beings, animals, and most importantly useful in various fields like drug discovery, tracking and distribution of various materials, and data warehouse management. In recent times, it is found that the ubiquitous technology has been extended to numerous industrial applications involving real-time decisions. This system termed as "Networks of RFID systems" helps in controlling various parameters and systems in real-time environment. Scheduling of real-time systems is important since it helps in satisfying the timing constraints where tasks in real-time systems are decided on the basis of deadline, occurrence period and slack time.
