ZigBee: A New Frontier for Low Cost Active RFID
This report begins with an excellent introduction to RFID, ZigBee and its use in automation. It also evaluates the use of ZigBee and Active RFID for a Location Tracking System. In addition, this publication presents analysis, case studies, and real-life experiences in which the author has utilized ZigBee to create Active RFID devices, which not only overcame the drawbacks during Tag-to-Reader communication, but also supported Tag-to-Tag communication to realize a very low cost Active RFID System robust enough to achieve a real-time Tracking and Monitoring System with many value-added functionalities.
