An Intelligent Approach to Handle False-Positive Radio Frequency Identification Anomalies
MetadataShow full item record
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology allows wireless interaction between tagged objects and readers to automatically identify large groups of items. This technology is widely accepted in a number of application domains, however, it suffers from data anomalies such as false-positive observations. Existing methods, such as manual tools, user specified rules and filtering algorithms, lack the automation and intelligence to effectively remove ambiguous false-positive readings. In this paper, we propose a methodology which incorporates a highly intelligent feature set definition utilised in conjunction with various state-of-the-art classifying techniques to correctly determine if a reading flagged as a potential false-positive anomaly should be discarded. Through experimental study we have shown that our approach cleans highly ambiguous false-positive observational data effectively. We have also discovered that the Non-Monotonic Reasoning classifier obtained the highest cleaning rate when handling false-positive RFID readings.
