An RFID Transponder Location System (2008)

Author(s): Tang M, Chester G, Neasham JA

    Abstract: This paper describes a location system based on RFID technology. This system can be used to map the image of an endoscope. Compared with other endoscope location systems, this is a wireless system. The transponder mounted along the shaft of an endoscope does not increase the size of the endoscope or affect the flexibility of endoscope. We build the mathematical model of this location system and verify this model by experiments. Although experiments are for a transponder moving along one dimension, we can develop a three-dimensional system based on our results.
