Abstract

Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technologies have rapidly become an integral business tool with applications that range from product inventory to personnel security and access. The problem we are currently addressing in our RFID research is the tracking of assets (people) under adverse conditions over extended periods of time. For the past two years we have participated with Army ROTC in their annual 13-mile Ranger Challenge at Camp Blanding Florida where we deployed a team of undergraduate and graduate students for timing and tracking participants. At the latest event, we combined RFID and GPS with solar technology in hopes of not only accurately timing participants, but also obtaining real-time location tracking under primitive conditions. As our research continues, we are hoping to develop more sophisticated and diverse applications of RFID technologies and are in initial discussions with entities external to the University who are seeking help in solving similar problems.
