Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an automatic identification method. RFID Reader is an integrated or passive network which is used to interrogate information from RFID tag (contains antennas to enable them to receive and respond to radiofrequency queries from an RFID transceiver). 1. For wireless data transmission and networking between sensor nodes. “RFID based Smart Office” is a system that uses RFID technology to maintain the attendance at real-time that can be monitored on Database server (PC). In addition the system also supports the room automation (automatic control of doors and lights). coupler and a micro processor. The RFID Reader may consist of antenna. demodulator. So the RFID is a wireless identification.1 INTRODUCTION The two major problems faced by organizations are time consuming manual attendance and wastage of electrical power. modulator.

The original business plan presented to investors in 1969 showed uses in transportation (automotive vehicle identification. vehicle performance monitoring). vehicle routing. The initial device was passive. automatic gates. it has been attributed as a predecessor to RFID technology. Sound waves vibrated a diaphragm which slightly altered the shape of the resonator. and was demonstrated in 1971 to the New York Port Authority and other potential users and consisted of a transponder with 16 bit memory for use as a toll device.Chapter 1 1.

Data collected from tags is then passed through communication interfaces (cable or wireless) to host computer systems in the same manner that data scanned from bar code labels is captured and passed to computer systems for interpretation. Some can be as small as a grain of rice. The reader. Data is stored in the IC and transmitted through the antenna to a reader. then passes the data to a computer for processing. storage. controlled by a microprocessor or digital signal processor. The reader decodes the data encoded in the tag(s) integrated circuit (silicon chip) and the data is passed to the host computer for processing. 1.4. 1. an RFID reader transmits an energy field that “wakes up” the tag and provides the power for the tag to respond to the reader. 1.4 BACKGROUND Introduction RFID has established itself in a wide range of markets including livestock identification and automated vehicle identification (AVI) systems because of its ability to track moving objects [1]. using an attached antenna.2 RFID READER A reader (now more typically referred to as an RFID interrogator) is basically a radio frequency (RF) transmitter and receiver. The two commonly used RFID Transponders [2] are Active (that do contain an internal battery power source that powers the tags chip) and Passive (that do not have an internal power source.1 RFID TAGS Tags also sometimes are called “transponders”. and action. 3 . but are externally powered typical from the reader) RFID Transponders.5 WORKING OF RFID Information is sent to and read from RFID tags by a reader using radio waves.4.

The biggest.Chapter 1 1. 4 . benefit would ultimately be in the consumer goods supply chain where an RFID tag attached to a consumer product could be tracked from manufacturing to the retail store right to the consumer's home.56 MHz.2 KHz. • High frequency (HF) 13. It is important to remember that not all applications require maximum range. • Ultra high frequency (UHF) (including 869 and 915 MHz). There are four commonly used frequencies: • Low frequency (LF) 125/134. as of yet unproven. a band familiar to ISPs).6 FREQUENCIES OF RFID Introduction RFID deployments tend to use unlicensed frequencies for their obvious cost benefits. A tag's read range performance is usually considered the primary gauge of its suitability for a particular application. The ranges greatly depend upon the surface on which the tag is mounted. while passive UHF tags can reach up to 20 feet. 1.7 FUTURE OF RFID RFID is said by many in the industry to be the frontrunner technology for automatic identification and data collection. Tags in the LF-HF band have a range of 1 to 18 inches. • Microwave (at 2450 MHz.

RFID tag data capacity is big enough that any tag will have a unique code.8 APPLICATIONS Introduction RFID itself isn’t new. Following are the potential uses of RFID. Today.Chapter 1 1. In World War II. It is likely that goods will be tracked preferably by the pallet using RFID tags and at package level with Universal Product Code (UPC) or EAN from unique barcodes. is widely available at reasonable cost. finally ending up in the consumer's hands. runners in marathons to assets in the supply chain [3]. due in part to their higher cost and in other part to the advantage of more than one independent data source on the same object. The uniqueness of RFID tags means that a product may be individually tracked as it moves from location to location. while current bar codes are limited to a single type code for all instances of a particular product. rudimentary RFID was used to distinguish between friendly and enemy aircraft. for example. The unique identity in any case is a mandatory requirement for RFID tags. RFID technology is used in everything from inventory control to product authentication. but the technology is currently experiencing a revival because of Wal-Mart’s announcement in June 2003 that it was requiring its top 100 vendors to be RFID compliant. Filtering and categorizing RFID data is needed in order to create useful information. having a number of important advantages over the older barcode technology. This may help companies to combat theft and 5 . despite special choice of the numbering scheme. They may not ever completely replace barcodes. The new EPC (Electronic Product Code). • REPLACING BARCODES RFID tags are often a replacement for UPC (Universal Product Code) or EAN (European Article Number) barcodes. The storage of data associated with tracking items will require many terabytes on all levels. toll tags to speed passes at the gas pumps. along with several other schemes.

this is some years from reaching fruition. the tracing back of products is an important feature that gets well supported with RFID tags containing not just a unique identity of the tag but also the serial number of the object. Since then. 6 . There is some evidence. for workflow and inventory management [14]. that nurses and other hospital staff may be subjected to increased surveillance of their activities or to labor intensification as a result of the implementation of RFID systems in hospitals [15]. a number of U. It has also been proposed to use RFID for POS (point for sale) store checkout to replace the cashier with an automatic system which needs no barcode scanning. as well.Chapter 1 Introduction other forms of product loss. hospitals have begun implanting patients with RFID tags and using RFID systems. This may help companies to cope with quality deficiencies and resulting recall campaigns. Moreover. • IDENTIFICATION OF PATIENTS AND HOSPITAL STAFF In July 2004. There is some research taking place. However. the Food and Drug Administration issued a ruling that essentially begins a final review process that will determine whether hospitals can use RFID systems to identify patients and/or permit relevant hospital staff to access medical records. Amongst all technologies studied including bar coding. more generally. this is not likely to be possible without a significant reduction in the cost of current tags and changes in the operational process around POS. however. An FDA nominated task force came to the conclusion after studying the various technologies currently commercially available. RFID seemed to be the most promising and the committee felt that the pedigree requirement could be met by easily leveraging something that is readily available [8]. which could meet the pedigree requirements.S. but also contributes to concern over post-sale tracking and profiling of consumers.

The re-transmit limit of every node is 3 o Whenever we push a button on dummy node it transmit a fixed fake node ID and tag# 4. ZigBee RF Modules operate in Transparent Mode. When operating in this mode. the serial data is stored in the DI Buffer • The data is packetized and sent at any Packetization timeout or when 100 bytes (maximum packet size) are received • ZigBee transceiver will broadcast that number to all the receivers (ZigBee transceivers) operating within its region 31 . When RF data is received. the data is sent out the DO pin (pin 2) • • Data is buffered in the DI buffer If the module cannot immediately transmit (for instance. if it is receiving RF data).

4.4 • PORT SWITCHING CIRCUIT

System Hardware: Reader Node

The microcontroller AT89c51 has one serial port (i.e. one Tx and one Rx pin), but the line driver (max232) used between microcontroller and DB9 connecter can support two serial ports

To avoid tapping (interfacing ZigBee and RFID module through same port), 3-state buffer (74ls244) is used

74ls244 has two enable pins (pin 1 and 19), each pin can control the four inputoutput pair associated with it, as shown in figure 4.4(a)

Figure 4.4(a): 74ls244 connections

Figure 4.4(b): 74ls244 truth table

When these pins are high, the output is in high impedance state. Pin 1 is reserved for RFID module and pin 19 for ZigBee module.

When the output is intended for particular device corresponding pin is set low (enable pins are active low as shown in figure 4.4(b)) through the assembly program burned in microcontroller

WORKING ZigBee receives the 3byte data (Node + Card ID) ZigBee transceiver sends the data to the microcontroller via MAX 232 IC (line driver)used for protocol translation from RS 232 to TTL and vice versa • The translated data is read by the microcontroller via a serial link

The microcontroller compares the card and node ID with the ID stored in its memory

Optocoupler and Relay Buffer is used to amplify the output current of the microcontroller The optocoupler is used to isolate the vital components (ZigBee and Microcontroller) from the reverse current • Optocoupler is a device that uses a short optical transmission path to transfer a signal between elements of a circuit. typically a transmitter and a receiver.

Non-volatile random access memory (NVRAM) is the general name used to describe any type of random access memory which does not lose its information when power is turned off 5.Chapter 5 System Hardware: Control Circuitry Figure 5.6. To modify the selected profile our program 40 .3(b): Control circuit schematic (Automation part) 5.1 • MODIFICATION IN USER’S PROFILE Administrator can modify user’s profile by a separate program on the server.6 • CONTROL CIRCUITRY WITH NVRAM To give this project flexibility we are using NVRAM with the control circuitry. He can select any profile for modification. Due to time constraint we are unable to implement this idea with our reader node • NVRAM give us the opportunity to modify user’s profile on the run time without making any changes in the hardware • NVRAM is a combination of RAM and ROM.

Each node will receive this string and perform modification according to the string code. If administrator wants to modify the profile on all nodes than it will contain code number 99H • Fourth and fifth byte is of card ID and sixth byte contains the profile number as illustrated in figure • To keep other nodes synchronized with the server the modification program transmit these 6 bytes into two 3 byte chunks Node ID 99H 00H Card ID (2 Bytes) Profile # 41 .Chapter 5 System Hardware: Control Circuitry will send a unique string of six bytes. • • First byte will inform the nodes that administrator wants to modify the profile Second byte will contain the node ID.

To make sure reliable data transfer between server and reader node the project adopts CSMA/CD algorithm. This limitation can be overcome by the use of NVRAM with the reader node which will not only make the design scalable but also flexible. 8. it is expected that wireless ad hoc sensor networks will become commonly deployed. The design also deals with the issues (reliable data transfer) of multinode environment. 56 . The final design of the project accomplished the idea of multinode environment which is responsible for automatic attendance and office automation according to the personalized profile of the RFID card holder. employees’ attendance management and many more. security.2 FUTURE WORKS With the coming availability of low cost.1 CONCLUSION The objective of this project that is “RFID based Smart Office” was to design a system based on RFID technology that will not only change the hectic manual attendance procedure but also automate user’s office. This project can be improvised by using external memory because the project design has a capability of handling 65000 card IDs which is large enough for any organization but the limitation lies in the microcontroller storage capacity. short range radios along with advances in wireless networking. NVRAM not only provide us extra memory but also enable us to add cards IDs on the run time. This project facilitates the users in numerous ways like time saving in attendance procedure.Chapter 8 CHAPTER 8 Conclusion and Future Work CONCLUSION AND FUTURE WORK 8.

Chapter 8 Conclusion and Future Work Furthermore. There is also some space to improve the project code. this project can be extended by making nodes IP enabled so that it can be accessed virtually from any where. 57 .
