Which Solutions Can Help Create an Automated RFID Portal?

Posted By RFID Journal, 09.24.2009
I want to set up an automated RFID portal and have events posted automatically on the Internet. Are there any hardware, software/middleware and database solutions available that could help me accomplish this goal?

There is no single off-the-shelf system of which I am aware. You would typically need to purchase RFID hardware and software separately, or hire a systems integrator that would choose them for you, and then implement it. However, this is not that difficult to do on your own.

Most ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) interrogators based on EPCglobal's standards output data in XML form. If you simply want to record that a tagged object went through a portal, it should be possible to write a simple middleware program, or to use open-source middleware to pass that information on to a database, so that it can be accessed via a secure Web site.

The Auto-ID Labs have written an open-source platform that you could utilize (see Auto-ID Lab Releases Accada RFID Prototyping Platform).
