Abstract
With the rapid growth IoT (Internet of Things), indoor positioning system has attracted significant interest, especially in complex environment. UHF RFID system has the potential to estimate the accurate location of indoor objects due to the long reading range and multi-tag identification capability. This paper introduces indoor localization system using a novel concept for robot based on a rotating UHF RFID antenna. A rotating platform is deployed on robot to rotate RFID antenna. It leverages Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) approach to locate robot position in real time when robot trajectory is indistinct or even unknown. The system is proved to be a promising solution with an average error with cm-level.
