The escalating demand for ubiquitous computing along with the complementary and flexible natures of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have sparked an increase in the integration of these two dynamic technologies. Although a variety of applications can be observed under development and in practical use, there has been a need for a resource that brings together timely coverage of RFIS, Sensor Networks, and their integration.
Filling this need, RFID and Sensor Networks: Architectures, Protocols, Security, and Integrations is the authoritative reference on RFID and WSNs. Covering a broad range of topics that includes everything from the basics to insights into future directions, this cutting-edge book reviews architectures, protocols, standards, security, and applications. With sections devoted to each individual element, the text starts by covering the tags, readers, and middleware associated with RFID. Next, it provides insights into the routing, medium access control, and cross-layer optimization of WSNs. The third section focuses on the integration of RFID and WSN, addresses contemporary challenges, and illustrates concepts and applications with practical examples.
This forward looking resource details the enhanced visibility and monitoring capabilities that are possible with RFID and WSNs and highlights contemporary applications including smart homes, surveillance systems, and personal health care. Providing a complete understanding of the essential fundamentals behind RFID and WSNs, this book will help you foster the skills needed to materialize the enhancements possible when these two promising technologies are used together.
