Abstract: Avehicle identification and drivers authentication system as a part of smart city development. It consists of a TCP/IP where centralizied database of authorized vehicles is stored and also it has RFID vehicle tags, RFID tag reader and RFID tag writer. The RFID tag is placed in a vehicle. The RFID tag reader is used to get the data from the RFID tags. For programming the RFID tags , the RFID tag writer is used. By reading the serial number in the RFID tag. Vehicle identification can be easily done. Driving license system is a huge task for the government to monitor. We can see many criminal activities from the traffic police while they are checking the documents. The crime will be done by both the side(people and police). To overcome that problem by implementing one more portable fingerprint sensor module that is given to the traffic police, Which is integrated with IOT where the person license information is stored. If the person places his finger on the sensor then the device will tell you whether they had a license or not. This can be done by interlinking the vehicle details with the IOT.
Abstract: This study focuses on security and performance of RFID systems in a traffic management application. We propose a scalable hybrid privacy-preserving mutual authentication protocol especially suitable for this application. Our main goal is to improve the authentication efficiency by taking advantage of both symmetric and asymmetric encryption mechanisms. We analyze the security of the protocol against unauthorized tag reading, tag modification, replay attacks, man-in-the-middle, and tracking. In order to examine the performance of the system, an automatic toll collection system is considered where a single reader is installed on a road segment to identify the vehicles, which are equipped with RFID tags, passing through the coverage area. Our simulation results show that the successful read-rate of the tags in the hybrid model can be up to 20% more than the asymmetric model depending on the traffic model and the reader-server communication delay. Furthermore, our findings demonstrate that a symmetric mutual authentication model is not scalable, and as the number of tags in the system grows, the reading rate decreases significantly.
Abstract: the main purpose of this paper is to design and implement a system based on a Password and a Radio-Frequency Identification RFID. This system is basically a password and an RFID based access-control system which permits only an authentic person to unlock. For doing this, the system will activate and authenticate the user. We have applied a security system via a passive type of RFID and a PASSWORD based on Atmega16 microcontroller. The RFID reader reads the ID number form RFID tag. Then enter the password from a Keypad, if the ID number of the tag and the password are correct, then the will unlock. The aim of constructing this system is to put in place a formidable locker security system with low cost and free of errors.
Abstract: Internet of things has become integrated in all aspects of life. Data and devices are interconnected to provide fast, efficient, and low-cost services. Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a wireless sensor network technology that is implemented with the Internet of Things (IoT) in many fields such as inventory management, product identification, healthcare administration, and government security. Large airports such as JFK experience a considerable number of customers traveling every year that creates a delay issue at the baggage check-in. In this paper, we try to mitigate the delay problem by automating the check-in process using self-service counters that are connected to the airport system and servers. All airport counters can be activated in a minute's notice to serve more customers and reduce the delay caused by the long waiting hours. We finally analyze our model with real-time data from the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey to measure the improvement of our automated model over the standard check-in model.
Abstract: Material identification and target imaging play an important role in many applications. This paper introduces TagScan, a system that can identify the material type and image the horizontal cut of a target simultaneously with cheap commodity RFID devices. The key intuition is that different materials and/or target sizes cause different amounts of phase and RSS (Received Signal Strength) changes, when radio frequency (RF) signal penetrates through the target. Multiple challenges need to be addressed before we can turn the idea into a functional system, including (i) indoor environments exhibit rich multipath which breaks the linear relationship between the phase change and the propagation distance inside a target; (ii) without knowing either material type or target size, trying to obtain these two information simultaneously is challenging; and (iii) stitching pieces of the propagation distances inside a target for an image estimate is non-trivial. We propose solutions to all the challenges and evaluate the system's performance in three different environments. TagScan is able to achieve higher than 94% material identification accuracies for 10 liquids and differentiates even very similar objects such as Coke and Pepsi. TagScan can accurately estimate the horizontal cut images of more than one target behind a wall.
Abstract: Recently, (Radio Frequency Identification) RFID based frameworks move beyond security to turn into tracking systems that integrate security with more proficient materials tracking inside the library, involving easier and quicker charging & discharging, materials handling and inventorying. In this study, a book tracking RFID-based system has been designed and developed to replace the existing library barcoding system. This system enables the librarians to minimise the spent time that is required for scanning barcodes during charging and discharging process. Further, this technology has been enhanced by inserting GSM features to notify and alert the borrower book with the due date of book return and also determine the associated fine if the due date is exceeded.
Abstract: With the advancement of society, the museum has exhibited more and more cultural relics, the number of visitors has also increased rapidly, and more and more criminals have stolen cultural relics. The traditional anti-theft methods cannot completely block their pace. This paper proposes a museum anti-theft scheme based on the Internet of Things (IoT) technology, which identifies whether the cultural relics are within the safe range through the passive RFID readers/writers. Once stolen, the cultural relics will leave the effective RFID identification range, which results in immediately alarming, then the system starts the anti-theft plan. The method is free from the drawbacks of the traditional infrared anti-theft, door magnetic detection and the like, the proposed anti-theft method monitoring has the immediacy and the safety factor is higher. Finally, in this paper, hardware circuit designs, software development and a series of tests are carried out to achieve the desired results.
Abstract: In the Global market, consumers are faced with expired and damaged products being packed on shelves with insufficient knowledge on the products quality and state. The 4 th Industrial Revolution opens up a new range of possibilities allowing corporate executives, factory workers and consumers the ability to access valuable information of their products during and after the production process. Currently, factory workers and local producers run the risk of having damaged or expired goods due to a lengthy Time to Market in the production line and lack of quality control checks. The length of the Time to Market process is largely due to the overseeing of manufacturing in a production line where effective bottlenecks and quality of services are not being monitored. Local producers are also unable to effectively monitor information of their products with financial incurrence of modern systems. Moreover, factory workers cannot relay production information from the factory floor to managers for every product. This paper proposes a solution which will allow for the tracking of products through a packaging and monitoring system using SMART Radio Frequency Identification tags. A case study comprising of a three station water bottling plant is used using the tagging system which will allow consumers to scan SMART Radio Frequency Identification tags attached to a bottle of water, using an electronic device. These SMART tags will remove the need for a local database, as information is stored onto the physical tag. Information about each product can be read with an app from the product's individual tag, without communicating to a local database, displaying information about the products quality and expiry date. Factory workers will also be able to monitor and gain access to production information, through a similar app and larger set of restricted data stored directly on the tag.
Abstract: This paper presents a comprehensive idea of an Automated Shopping and Billing Trolley system that utilizes Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) with the billing side using Mobile Application. RFID technology offers the capacity to give numerous new administrations and comforts in the retail condition. It utilizes radio frequency to accomplish this. The framework comprises of a Radiofrequency Identification based trolley that communicates with the billing system that is the Mobile Application. The RFID reader examines every one of the product when product is placed in the trolley. This data is shown on the display unit that is on the trolley for the customer to confirm the product purchased and simultaneously check the cost of every item. The trolley will be connected with the mobile application through the WiFI Module (ESP 8266), the customer gets to see the items and the quantity of the items that have been purchased on the application. After confirmation of items to be purchased from the customer the application redirects to the payment page where the payment can be done by Card or Cash. Information is eradicated from the micro-controller memory after the customer has finished purchasing and makes the trolley available for the next customer. The proposed system is easy to use, low-prized and efficient. As the entire framework is becoming smart, the necessity of labour will diminish, along these lines profiting the retailers. More customers can be served in same time subsequently profiting the retailers and customers also.
Abstract: The proposed model taps into the acoustic abilities of a Visually Impaired Person(VIP). An RFID based system is used to help the VIP identify any particular object of his need. In addition to RFID module, an Ultrasonic sensor is used to avoid obstacles and to provide various feedback for pinpointing the object. A series of acoustic actuators is used to trigger the required navigation for the VIP. The model uses two-way localization, one using acoustic stimuli and the other using RFID. The proposed model provides an affordable solution to the existing problem of lack of sophisticated technological assistance to the VIPs.
