Design and Construction of an RFID-enabled Infrastructure: by Nagabhushana Prabhu

By Nagabhushana Prabhu

Internet 2.0 (previously known as the net of items) offers a tantalizing imaginative and prescient of bridging the cyber and actual worlds to forge a unbroken planet-wide infrastructure during which cyber assets and actual items can engage with no human intervention. The expertise had to construct the infrastructure already exists. even if, greater than a decade after the imaginative and prescient of net 2.0 was once articulated, it continues to be principally unrealized other than in remoted settings.

Following a heritage dialogue, Design and building of an RFID-enabled Infrastructure: the subsequent Avatar of the web addresses 3 questions: what are the obstacles to the emergence of web 2.0 as a world infrastructure? What are the gains that web 2.0 structure should have whether it is to turn into a winning worldwide infrastructure?How can one construct a prototype of web 2.0?

The quest for solutions to the above questions threads the narrative in the course of the birthing approach and maturation of 2 profitable international infrastructures—the net and the net. in response to a assessment of the layout philosophies underlying the net and the internet, their histories and the strategic stewardship that midwifed their births, the e-book provides the architectural guidance for the web 2.0 infrastructure in addition to a blueprint for the development of its prototype. The dialogue within the e-book is consolidated right into a record of technical and strategic directions meant to facilitate the incubation of web 2.0.

A Guide to the Wireless Engineering Body of Knowledge (WEBOK)

The last word reference ebook for pros within the instant undefined the knowledge provided during this e-book displays the evolution of instant applied sciences, their impression at the occupation, and the industry's usually approved top practices. equipped into seven major components of craftsmanship, A advisor to the instant Engineering physique of information (WEBOK) complements readers' figuring out of: instant entry applied sciences community and repair structure community administration and defense Radio frequency engineering, propagation,and antennas amenities infrastructure Agreements, criteria, regulations, and rules instant engineering basics Complemented with various references and recommendations for extra interpreting, the WEBOK is an essential source for someone operating within the instant undefined.

Software Radio: A Modern Approach to Radio Engineering

I often count on any e-book popping out of a college to be hugely theoretical and math-centric, yet this publication is neither. it is a transparent exposition of software program radio techniques and concerns, with loads of recognition paid to sign new release and processing. in contrast to one other reviewer, i used to be satisfied to determine 70 pages dedicated to clever antennas, in view that any multi-protocol transceiver working within the GHz diversity goes to wish them.

Sample Rate Conversion in Software Configurable Radios

This authoritative, modern source supplies a entire evaluate of pattern price conversion (SRC) and its purposes in software program configurable radios. The publication is helping you recognize the boundaries of possible platforms for pattern cost conversion, in addition to the boundaries of interpolation. You get sound recommendation on settling on the perfect forms of SRC for particular functions, and tips in dealing with the trade-off among complexity and the clock cost of a method.

The Radio Spectrum: Managing a Strategic Resource

Radio frequencies became a easy source for the advance of the knowledge society. actually, radio waves are a compulsory car to be able to hold the message to buyers and a really around the world verbal exchange wishes their homes. Given the industry calls for for progressively more frequencies, ability need to be discovered to percentage this constrained source so much successfully and to regularly increase its potency.

Sample text

The interested reader is referred to Eckert et al. [2011] for further details. Smart Objects Wireless tags serve to bridge the cyber and physical worlds by making tagged physical objects visible to the cyber infrastructure. As we discussed before, tagging an object is like attaching a license plate on a vehicle and does not endow the object with any computational intelligence. Tagging does not make an object smart. Merely tagging objects preserves the separation between the physical world comprising objects that lack computational intelligence and the cyber world in which all intelligent processing occurs.

R ­ FID-­based innovative solutions, such as those being employed by DHL, are providing the service needed for the emerging needs. Contactless Transactions: Magnetic stripe cards, such as credit cards and identification cards, are not very versatile. The functionalities of multiple cards are being bundled together into a single contactless smart card using RFID technology. For example, the Octopus card that has gained popularity in Hong Kong doubles as a smart card for electronic transactions and also for controlling access into buildings [Octopus 2012].

The large volume of container traffic makes it infeasible to manually inspect all of the containers flowing through a port. Recently, smart RFID seals are being used as a ­high-­throughput alternative to the conventional seals. The smart RFID seals make it practical to quickly monitor the integrity of all of the containers, not only at the ports but also at intermediate points along the transit routes. Several ports across the world, including the Port of Singapore, are now using RFID seals on containers bound for the United States as part of the Container Security Initiative.
