Context-Aware Physical Spaces

As the AIDC industry celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, the technology has evolved such that today, almost anything can be radio-identified, using standard passive and active tags, at a range of several metres or more. As such, contextual awareness at the scale of a physical space becomes a possibility through the identification, location and sensor data capture of everything present. This tutorial will cover how this data is captured, processed, represented and distributed to enable context-aware physical spaces, with a focus on RAIN RFID and Bluetooth Low Energy technologies, off-the-shelf hardware, and open source middleware. Current and emerging use cases will be presented, as well as a live, interactive demonstration.
