I am doing my undergraduate final-year project using RFID and IoT technologies, and I need to view the device’s position on a map. How could I do that?
First, you would need to use an RFID reader with built-in GPS functionality, or else link that reader to a GPS device. I would recommend using a reader with built-in GPS functionality. Convergence Systems Ltd. makes the CSL Intelligent Integrated RFID Reader with GPS. The device can output tag reads along with the reader’s GPS coordinates. Google offers an application programming interface (API) that allows you to plot GPS coordinates and show the location on a map (see Google Maps Platform).
