The purpose of this paper is to investigate the use of passive radio frequency identification (RFID) technology for environment mapping and surveillance by an autonomous mobile robot.
Proposes a fuzzy inference method to localize RFID tags in the environment.
Demonstrates that RFID technology can be successfully integrated in mobile robot systems to support navigation and provide the robot with mapping and surveillance capabilities.
Use of fuzzy reasoning to learn the model of the RFID device and localize the tags, enhancing the capability of the system to recognize and monitor the environment.
