In this paper we provide a general and repeatable experimental evaluation campaign of location algorithms based on RSSI measures for active RFID systems. We start from the well-known LANDMARC approach and conduct a thorough investigation aiming at evaluating its actual potentials and limitations under different environmental conditions. For the sake of completeness, we compare its behavior with the one of a further technique, named RSSI Spatial Interpolation (RSI), which is taken as a representative of a wider family of solutions which also LANDMARC belongs to. Experimental results show that by even introducing some modifications, still both algorithms get poor performance in indoor scenarios; location errors lower than 2m are only attainable in limited size outdoor environments in 90% of the experiments

Abstract

In this paper we provide a general and repeatable experimental evaluation campaign of location algorithms based on RSSI measures for active RFID systems. We start from the well-known LANDMARC approach and conduct a thorough investigation aiming at evaluating its actual potentials and limitations under different environmental conditions. For the sake of completeness, we compare its behavior with the one of a further technique, named RSSI Spatial Interpolation (RSI), which is taken as a representative of a wider family of solutions which also LANDMARC belongs to. Experimental results show that by even introducing some modifications, still both algorithms get poor performance in indoor scenarios; location errors lower than 2m are only attainable in limited size outdoor environments in 90% of the experiments
