Passive RFID systems used for list organization and benefit tracking normally use contention-based MAC protocols, such as the normal C1G2 protocol. Although the C1G2 protocol has the benefit that it is easy to apply, it suffers from wrongness and relatively low throughput when the number of tags in the network increases. It proposes a token-based MAC protocol called Token-MAC for passive RFID systems, which aims to provide a fair chance for tags in the network to access the average without requiring management of the tags, to increase the overall throughput, i.e., the tag rate, and to enable a high number of tags to be read under incomplete tag read time availability, which is an especially important challenge for mobile applications.
