Active RFID, Baby Care, 3D Positioning


In the recent years Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) becomes a popular labeling and positioning system. One of the biggest fears of parents is, without a doubt, losing of their newborn babies. The current condition at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital (CGMH) uses passive RFID in order to identify the baby and matching with parents. In this paper, we propose three dimensions (3D) position systems to improve the current condition in CGMH. 3D RFID positioning system in baby care is one kind of improvement of existing positioning system, which is development of mapping technique with 3D space coordinates (x, y, and z). The main reason to use 3D RFID positioning systems are to make baby more safety from inside factor (wrong identification by nurse) and outside factor (snatcher baby). In 3D RFID positioning system also can possibly to multi tracking and accurate adjustment so it helps nurses to identify each baby whether still lying down or drop to floor. We hope that that, our suggestion systems can improve security of the baby using advanced tracking babies.
