  • Patent number: 7817014
    Abstract: A system and method of scheduling RFID tag interrogations by a plurality of RFID readers so as to mitigate the effects of interference within an RFID environment in which the readers are deployed, and to enhance the efficiency and reliability of the overall RFID system. The system includes a plurality of RFID receivers for receiving RFID tag data, a plurality of RFID tag interrogators for transmitting RF interrogation signals for interrogating RFID tags, and a controller for providing to at least one interrogator, at least one receiver, and at least one tag, a parameter associated with operational characteristics of the interrogator, the receiver, and the tag, respectively. The interrogator, the receiver, and the tag are operative, in response to receipt of the respective parameter, to modify its operational characteristics in accordance with the respective parameter, thereby avoiding interference at the receivers and the tags.

  • Publication number: 20090256683
    Abstract: A system and method that facilitates the configuration and control of components of a radio frequency identification (RFID) system, taking into account how the RFID system components are associated with one or more physical locations within an environment in which the RFID system is deployed. The RFID system can be controlled by obtaining a representation of the physical space. Next, at least one region of interest is specified in the representation of the physical space. An interrogation zone is then specified in the representation of the physical space, in which the interrogation zone corresponds to the data reader. Next, at least one overlap region of the interrogation zone and the region of interest is specified. Information is then stored, including the representation, and the interest region, the interrogation zone, and/or the overlap region. Operation of the data reader is controlled as a function of the stored information.
