Radio Frequency Identification for Pedestrian Navigational Assistance

  Posted on Wednesday October 22, @06:07AM Pacific
Net Devices University of Rochester researchers have come up with a unique and interesting use for the emerging radio frequency identification (RFID) systems. The Rochester team has reversed the standard radio tag setup by making the receivers mobile and the transponders fixed. Using this arrangement, information can be provided at certain points in space. The system, dubbed Navigational Assistance for the Visually Impaired (NAVI), can provide location information for the visually impaired and for other kinds of navigational assistance applications like self-guided tours.

    You might be interested to read Gordon Cook’s research on RFID implementation, and the massive issues of corporate trust and shared back-end systems that will be necessary to make the EPCGlobal vision of complete visibility of RFID tagged items visible throughout their lifespan. The book is summarized on my site - http://www.rfidexchange.com

      I came across this press relase from www.printronix.com regarding their RFID Partner Network with other companies. Does anyone have any insight on how to partner with companies like Printronix?

      Thanks!
