New Book: RFID Protocol Design, Optimization, and Security for the Internet of Things
Alex X. Liu, Professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University, Muhammad Shahzad, former Ph.D.
student of Alex X. Liu in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Michigan State University, currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at North Carolina State University, and Xiulong Liu, and Keqiu Li have recently published a book titled "RFID Protocol Design, Optimization, and Security for the Internet of Things" by The Institution of Engineering and Technology.
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. RFIDs have been widely used in countless applications such as object tracking, 3D positioning, indoor localization, supply chain management, automotive, inventory control, anti-theft, anti-counterfeit, and access control. The Internet of Things (IoT) promises a huge growth in RFID technology and usage.
This book covers the topic of RFID protocol design and optimization.
RFID systems allow for a much easier and error free inventory management and tracking. But the probabilistic nature of RFID protocols makes the design and optimization complex and challenging. Most existing commercial RFID systems are not well designed. In this book, the authors aim to demystify complicated RFID protocols and explain in depth the principles, techniques, and practices in designing and optimizing them.
