Data Management in RFID Applications


Nowadays, RFID applications have attracted a great deal of interest due to their increasing adoptions in supply chain management, logistics and security. They have posed many new challenges to existing underlying database technologies, such as the requirements of supporting big volume data, preserving data transition path and handling new types of queries. In this paper, we propose an efficient method to manage RFID data. We explore and take advantage of the containment relationships in the relational tables in order to support special queries in the RFID applications. The experimental evaluation conducted on an existing RDBMS demonstrates the efficiency of our method.
