A heuristic approach for allocation of data to RFID tags: A data allocation knapsack problem (DAKP) Authors:Davis, Lauren; Samanlıoğlu, Funda; Jiang, Xiaochun; Mota, Daniel; Stanfield, Paul
Publisher and Date:(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2012)Durable products and their components are increasingly being equipped with one of several forms of automatic identification technology such as radio frequency identification (RFID). This technology enables data collection, storage, and transmission of product information throughout its life cycle. Ideally all available relevant information could be stored on RFID tags with new information being added to the tags as it becomes available. However, because of the finite memory capacity of RFID tags ...

Publisher and Date:(IEEE, 2009)The problem of transportation in a disaster area can be seen broadly as having two aspects: (a) moving people and materials out of an area and (b) moving people and materiel into the same area. The common thread here is the use of a limited set of surface and air transportation gateways into and out of the area. The distributed routing problem here is that of assigning one from among the limited set of gateways to various transportation requests in real-time while maximizing some measure of success ...

Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2010)We address the implementation of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to support and manage durable products over their entire lifecycle with a focus on optimising the RFID tagging system. We develop general models that optimise the placement of RFID tags on an end product and its components the allocation of the data on tags and the selection of RFID tags and their configuration. The primary criteria for optimisation are to maximise the value of RFID data and to minimise the total ...
