Sixthsense: rfid-based enterprise intelligence
RFID is widely used to track the movement of goods through a supply chain. In this paper, we extend the domain of RFID by presenting SixthSense, a platform for RFID-based enterprise intelligence systems. We consider an enterprise setting where people (or rather their employee badges) and their personal objects such as books and mobiles are tagged with cheap, passive RFID tags, and there is good coverage of RFID readers in the workplace. SixthSense combines mobility information obtained from RFID-based sensing with information from enterprise systems such as calendar and presence, to automatically draw inferences about the association and interaction amongst people, objects, and workspaces. For instance, SixthSense is able to automatically distinguish between people and objects, learn the identities of people, and infer the ownership of objects by people. We characterize the performance of a state-of-the-art RFID system used in our testbed, present our inference algorithms, and evaluat...
