Abstract

Positioning accuracy is an essential factor for many location-aware applications. This study designs an RFID-based positioning system for telematics location-aware applications. If a passenger in a vehicle loses a wallet with an RFID tag attached, then an RFID reader can be adopted to detect the tag, and thus find the wallet. Performance analysis results indicate that the proposed RFID-based positioning system has a distance error of less than 1.64 m, and an accuracy rate at least 13.24% higher than the common LANDMARC approach. These results indicate that the RFID operations in telematics positioning applications have high-accuracy location-awareness.
