Yereraltı Maden İşçilerini Gerçek Zamanlı Takip Etmek İçin RFID Teknolojisine Dayalı Özgün Bir Entegrasyon Metodolojisi
In recent years many companies want to keep track of their employees sources and working machines due to various reasons like security coordination performance monitoring. The purpose and requirements are the main factors that determine the methodology of tracking. The real-time tracking can be determined with high precision in open areas with the global positioning system (GPS). However previous research and developments for indoor tracking have mostly focused on infrared wireless LAN and ultrasonic. In this study a Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) protocol and interface are integrated into an open source Information Systems (IS) software. A tight coupling methodology is developed for integration of RFID into an open source software. The use of open source software as a common interface also provides better spatial display and analysis capabilities. The tracking algorithm is completely unique original and it is encoded in the Java programming language. In the algorithm the accuracy of locating the proximity direction of miners and whether the RFID tag is on the right and left of the last point of RFID receiver is determined with 20 m accuracy. The system was tested in an underground salt mine. The developed methodology and system are now being commercialized in Turkey.
