Abstract

Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) provide great benefits to society in safety and can lead to sensitive information to optimize resource planning in public facilities and major events. The current cost of people locator systems and deployment difficulty hinders installation in multiple scenarios despite the potential benefits posed therein. In this paper we present a low cost and easy deployment RTLS based on RFID technology and active tags. The proposed system can be optimal for scenarios where location accuracy is not a key factor, being enough to know an approximation of the position and mainly the presence or absence of a person in the area monitored.
