    Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Electronic Product Code (EPC) have received great attention in recent years. The EPCglobal Network uses the Internet to transmit EPC data gathered from RFID tags. Although EPC Network is used to capture and share EPC-related data within a supply chain, the information discovery mechanism is still to be determined so far. In this paper we propose a novel RFID event publishing approach in the IOT based on EPC Network. The objective is to publish the RFID event in different repositories that wish to expose and share their information. In addition, we propose the strategy and algorithm for RFID Event publishing.

    Internet of Things is the concept of connecting every device to the internet. RFID systems are used in IoT due to their brilliant advantages. Hence, IoT faces many challenges such as limited address space in RFID systems. Lots of proposed methods are using different algorithms based on Electronic Product Code and RFID reader to generate new IPv6 addressing mechanisms. EPC is used in RFID systems to identify the products. Different addressing methods are analyzed in this study. Also, we propose a new EPC based IPv6 addressing mechanism with the help of reader NetID to provide a unique and hierarchical address for RFID. The main advantages of our proposed method is that, our mechanism is very simple and easy to implement.

  • Beyond the WiFi: Introducing RFID system using IPv6

    RFID System suffers from limited address space and local mobility. Moreover, it is a monopoly business with few vendors, which are trying to dominate the market with proprietary standard of RFID reader. The proposed system will replace the expensive RFID reader with cheap Wireless Network Interface Card (WNIC). For the purpose, an innovative scheme for RFID tagging system is introduced which will be benefited by well-defined WiFi protocol. IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) address will be used as product identifier. This will provide a universal identity of the objects with seamless global mobility. The EPC (Electronic Product Code) will directly map to IPv6 address by using an auto configuration method. So that 64 bit EPC will take the place of the EUI-64 portion of IPv6 address. The proposed system suggests the mechanism of reducing significant cost, physical location detection and usage of global unique address, which will also be compatible with existing EPC addressing scheme.

  • Bayesian Supply Chain Tracking Using Serial-Level Information

    Supply chain visibility is one of the main levers for achieving operational efficiency. Modern supply chain tracking systems can deliver serial-level information about the location of items progressing through the chain. However, these systems still fail to meet the managers' visibility requirements in full, since they provide discrete information about product location at specific time instances only. This paper proposes a model that uses the data provided by these tracking systems to deliver enhanced tracking information to the final user. Following a Bayesian approach, the model produces realistic continuous estimates about the current and future locations of products across a supply network, taking into account the characteristics of the product behavior as well as the configuration of the data-collection points. These estimates can then be used to optimize operational decisions that depend on product availability at different locations. This paper demonstrates how the proposed model can enhance tracking information delivered by the radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and the electronic product code (EPC) network. The enhancement of tracking information quality is highlighted through an example.

  • Modern Logistics Monitoring Platform Based on the Internet of Things

    In this paper, a modern logistics monitoring platform based on the Internet of Things was studied and its system architecture and functions were particularly designed. The platform was designed based on the following technologies. In aspect of goods identification, a global unified electronic product code EPC was adopted and each goods was given a unique code that was according with international standards. Reading and writing EPC data was by taking use of RFID technology, which read data from electronic tags via a wireless non- contact method. In aspect of goods code management, new concepts of dynamic EPC and static EPC were proposed for goods in transport and movement. Through introduction of dynamic EPC and static EPC, data flow significantly was reduced, the management process was simplified and management efficiency was improved. In aspect of network transmission, both wired network and wireless network were taken for transmission task. Wired networks were available based on Internet and LAN. For mobile sites, wireless network GRPS was used for communication. In aspect of positioning goods, global positioning system GPS was used for location and tracking of goods. In aspect of platform function design, the system's function requirements were analyzed and designed, and a series of its functions were proposed, such as real-time data acquisition, automatic alarm, remote control, data control and processing, historical information record and product quality safety tracing, market analysis and intelligent projections etc.. Modern logistics monitoring platform based on the Internet of Things, because of its advanced technologies, excellent performances and integrated functions, would play an important role in the development of modern logistics.

  • SHARDIS: A Privacy-Enhanced Discovery Service for RFID-Based Product Information

    The EPCglobal Network is an emerging global information architecture for supporting Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) in supply chains. Discovery services for the EPCglobal Network are distributed services that serve the following pivotal lookup function: Given an identifier for a real-world object, e.g., an Electronic Product Code (EPC) stored on an RFID tag, they return a list of Internet addresses of services that offer additional information about the object. Since a client's information interests in the EPCglobal Network can be used to create inventory lists and profiles of his physical surroundings, as well as be used for business intelligence on the flow of goods in corporate applications, protecting client privacy becomes crucial. In particular, privacy mechanisms should by design be integrated into discovery services where the client's information interests could be analyzed by many potential adversaries. This paper introduces SHARDIS, a privacy- enhanced discovery service for RFID information based on the peer-to-peer paradigm. The idea is to enhance confidentiality of the client's query against profiling by cryptographically hashing the search EPC and by splitting and distributing the service addresses of interest. Furthermore, a probabilistic analysis of the privacy benefits of SHARDIS is presented. SHARDIS was implemented using the global research platform PlanetLab. Several performance experiments show its practical feasibility for many application areas.

  • Notice of RemovalA client privacy preserving discovery service scheme

    The EPCglobal Network is a global information architecture for objects carrying RFID tags with Electronic Product Codes (EPC) in supply chains. Discovery Service (DS) is an important component storing large amounts of indices from EPCs to detailed information in EPCISes. However, to the client, DS is a third-party server which can easily get clients' privacy when they send queries. In this paper, using the policy of Private Information Retrieval (PIR), we propose a client privacy preserving DS scheme that can meet both basic functional requirement and client privacy requirement. Compared to existing privacy preserving DS schemes, our work is more concise in architecture and can completely guarantee the client privacy.

  • An automatic generation of management information base (MIB) for OSI based network management system

    The authors propose an automatic generation of a management information base (MIB), which forms one part of the total NMS (network management system) development support tools. The proposed MIB has capabilities to manage the management information distributed over a network, and gives a convenient object-oriented interface for application programs to handle the distributed information in a transparent fashion. MIB libraries and tools have been developed, part of which can be used as the application interfaces, while others are used internally in the MIB. These libraries and tools cooperatively make possible the automatic generation of MIB. The implementation of the proposed MIB has been done, and it is being applied to real NMS products.<<ETX>>

  • Engineering Management-Focused Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Model Solutions

    In comparison to the well known and widely used UPC bar codes, that offer generic object-level visibility, RFID tags, also referred to as the ePCs: electronic product codes with a 96-bit identification method, offer unique, item level visibility throughout the entire local and global supply chain. This is because UPC codes are typically product and manufacturer specific, whereas RFID codes are generic, truly unique IDs. This is why RFID technologies with the appropriate information systems and information technology (IS/IT) infrastructure help both major distributors and manufacturers, as well as other logistics operations, such as the electronic manufacturing industries, defense industries, automotive, pharmaceutical industries, and others, dealing with complex, global supply chains in which products and product manufacture, assembly and shipments must be traced and identified in a non-contact, wireless fashion. Engineering management is collaborating with IS/IT professionals to model and integrate RFID-related information systems engineering requirements into computer networks, because of reducing cost, increasing security, or safety, or because parts are subject to corrosion, or food/medicine is subject to quality degradation, or other reasons. All of these requirements point to an automated, wireless-readable sensory-based identification method, and network, that offers more functionalities and is significantly 'smarter' than the well known bar code or the unified product code (UPC). RFIDs are available as passive and/or active radio read/write sensor-packages with active read (and often write) capabilities in relatively large areas (like a large distribution center warehouse, or a containership), all performed automatically, supervised by computers and communicated in a wireless fashion over secure intranets. The attraction to an engineering management-focused supply chain manager is that when the RFID network is integrated with the factories' material resource IT management systems, accurate information can be obtained on all tagged parts in close to real-time, throughout the entire supply-chain. This can include the globally distributed factories, as well as information about parts and assemblies during shipment, including in-transit. This is why RFID represents great research, technology, as well as huge business opportunities. In this paper we introduce some of the most important engineering management information system modeling principles, challenges and solutions, that RFID researchers, implementers and users should keep in mind when developing such systems, and/or planning for such applications.
