RFID Antennas with asymmetric detection patterns can be used to determine the location of people carrying tags in social robotics applications. Social robotics is increasingly accounting for the significance of the areas around social entities. For a robot, being able to detect the position of someone that is in its close neighborhood means that it can adapt its behavior and improve the quality of the interactions with humans. The image shows a probabilistic model of the detection pattern for a system in the band 902-928 MHz (detection probability increasing with the temperature of the color). Detection probabilities can be estimated in realtime from the read counts and matched with these diagrams to obtain estimates of the position of the tags. View the paper here.
