Case Sharing on 2.4 GHz RFID Active Series (HKRAR- LXRX) - Case 3

Asset management - Using Wireless Active RFID System in Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Department of Building Service Engineering)

December, 2008

Building Services Engineering (BSE) in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University has an enviable reputation for leading edge research. They combine academic excellence with an innovative attitude that responds to community needs and enables them to quickly put together multidisciplinary teams to meet the changing demands of the profession and society at large.

BSE is conducting a research of people flow in shopping mall. We assist them to simulate the operation with RFID equipments. Our active reader HKRAR-LX-RXWF can work as a mobile device. In this case, BSE built 4 detecting zones in the campus. They put one reader in each detecting zone; this locator can show the movement of student during recess time.

This system helps them to analysis the movement preference of students. By using this wireless active system, the installation is more convenience and easier. The system can work under Wi-Fi; the installation becomes flexible and makes the experiment more effective.

The operation of wireless active system is similar to visitor tracking in Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The wireless active system work as data absorption agent and perform data gathering.

The new wireless active system brought an advantage in the installation process. It has great flexibility and conduct a more comprehensive experiment.
