RFID-Enabled Sensing Technologies for Real-time Environmental Monitoring and Risk Management

Solution RFID-Enabled Sensing Technologies for Real-time Environmental Monitoring and Risk Management
(REF : S-0153)
Features of Products / Solutions
  • The technology enhances the capability of monitoring large facilities like exhibition halls, warehouses and distribution centers for their optimal conditions to preserve the quality of goods as well as for their efficiency and accuracy to flow through large quantity of goods.
  • The solution makes use of a pluggable RFID hardware platform based on different monitoring needs. A hybrid indoor communication is used to leverage on power line and wireless communications to facilitate a low energy data communications and support sensor data collection, utility command and control.
  • Software modules are used to manage all pluggable RFID hardware devices and analyze data being collected from them. A universal sensor interface is used to plug in up to eight external sensor and utility modules to an active tag for logging and wirelessly transmitting data and commands.
  • Data communication protocols developed at CUHK are used to connect thousands of tag devices in a hybrid indoor communication network infrastructure, which consists of power line and wireless communications commonly found in large facilities like museums and warehouses.
  • This technology could help improve preparing adequate control of environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, lightings, and vibrations for preserving valuable artifacts and goods. In addition, it can provide the flexibility in extending utility functionalities such as flash lights or displays for enhancing the signaling and tracking those goods.
