Hi!,

I was very much interested in knowing the following:

When a Reader sends RF Signals to the tag and identifies the
object to which a tag is attached,is it possible to find out
the exact geographical location of the object by using RF
Signals. If it is possible,is it possible to tell me how as
I am doing a project based on tracking objects in different
ranges.

If someone could help me with this matter,it would have been
useful for the project.

Regards
Saleel

Saleel,

There are various methods that can be used for asset location tracking.
Real-time location Systems (RTLS) offer the ability to track the location of
an asset based on wireless signals (often using 802.11) in combination with
triangulation methodologies. Passive RFID does not allow you to pin down an
exact location of an item, but it does allow you to know when an item has
moved within the vacinity of a reader, so if you know the location of the
reader, you can determine the general location of the asset.

Please get in touch with me directly if you would like to learn more about
upcoming capabilities within RFID Anywhere for this type of asset tracking
ability.
