Helmut Wünsch, "Informationssammlung und Lokalisierung mit RFID Technologie für mobile Roboter," Bachelor Thesis, Department of Computer Science, Friedrich–Alexander University of Erlangen–Nuremberg (FAU), July 2006. (Advisors: Falko Dressler and Gerhard Fuchs)


This student thesis describes the process of integrating a RFID-reader in a mobile robot system. In the first part a basic introduction into RFID-technology is given. Different forms of the technology are getting introduced and some examples of real-world applications are given. Also the chances and risks of this technology are getting examined. After that, the installation of the selected rfid-reader (Tectus TLB-12-AA) into the robertino-system is described. The most important criteria (like hardwareinterface, size or consumption of power) which led to the purchase decision are presented and the basic technical features of the reader itself (like the communication-protocol or compatibility to different type of transponders) are getting described. In the following part the development-process of the needed robrain-plugin for controlling the hardware is explained. Different methods for reading or writing to tags as well as methods for proper return-code-handling are getting described. Furthermore, the thesis gives an outlook of possible future application-areas like for example the combination of robot-technology and RFID within the scope of so called smart-homes.
