Wang, Jian, Cai, Baigen and Wu, Jianping (2005) A GPS based "Virtual tag" Technology Used in Railway At IEEE International Conference on Service Operations, Logistics and Informatics. 10 - 12 Aug 2005. 4 pp, pp. 1088-1091.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


RFID based equipment inspection system has been widely used in industrial field in recent years. But in some rug fields, for example, the railway, the equipments are distributed along the railway trackside. RFID tags are not suitable.

The implementation of “Virtual Tag” was discussed detailed. And the test results were presented.
