Millions of Muslims go to Mecca every year to perform their Hajj (Pilgrimage). Management of Hajj activities is a very complex task for Saudi Arabian authorities and Hajj organizers due to the large number of pilgrims, the specific geographical area for the movement of pilgrims and the short period of Hajj. Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology can be used in various applications during Hajj season to provide good solutions for many problems and contribute in overcoming many difficulties. Despite this, RFID as an emerging technology has not been studied from the Hajj perspective.
