Abstract

Missing tag detection in RFID can occur due to RFID operating environment such as signal collisions and interferences. The consequences of this problem can be enormous to business, as it will cause the system to report incorrect data due to an incorrect number of tags being detected. The performance of RFID missing tag detection is largely affected by uncertainty, which should be considered in the detecting process phase to minimize its negative impact. This paper reviewed some of the prominent approaches in missing tag detection problem. There are many approaches has been proposed to include Window Sub-range Transition Detection (WSTD), RFID monitoring protocol with unexpected tags (RUN), Iterative ID-free Protocol (IIP) and Multi-hashing based Missing Tag Identification (MMTI) protocol. Based on the reviews it will give insight on the current challenges and open up to new solution to solve the problem of missing tag detection.
