Executive Summary

Radio Frequency Identification or RFID systems are emerging as economical solutions for fast identification of objects. One of the important aspects of setting up a RFID network is deploying RFID readers to ensure complete coverage of RFID tags in a given area. This task is usually accomplished by conducting site surveys and then deploying RFID readers in different configurations to determine the optimal one. As the size of the given area increases, time taken to setup a RFID network increases thus increasing the cost of deployment. The paper presents RFIDPlanner, a coverage planning tool for RFID networks, which attempts to tackle the issue using simulation.
