Radio frequency identification (RFID) wireless technologyis used for tracking, locating and identifying items, person or an animal through radio waves without line of sight. Efficiency of RFID can be enhanced by integrating with wireless sensor network (WSN) and zigbee mesh network. Integrated system can get richer information of real-time locating system (RTLS) of items characteristics and sensing their environmental parameters like temperature, noise and humidity etc. The system make life easier at various fields. It can prevent theft of automobiles, tolls collection without stopping,tracking library books,no checkout lines at grocery stores, managing traffic and hospital system, tracking corporate campuses and airports, mobile asset tracking, warehousing, tracking manufacturing, logistics and supply chain management.The proposed system optimized by using particle swarm optimization intelligence technique which solves the RFID network planning issues such as tag coverage, load balance, economic efficiency and interference between readers. RFID wireless integrated system increases productivity, accuracy and convenience in delivery of service in supply chain at optimum level.
