RFID technology can be found embedded in almost everything from razor blade packages, clothing and books to prescription medicines to parts of an aircraft. Despite the pervasive nature of RFID, surveys have consistently shown a lack of RFID awareness, an overall lack of understanding and general confusion about what it actually is, its capabilities and limitations. This is due in part to a lack of a comprehensive, principles-based and systematic RFID classification scheme. This paper proposes a multi-agent architecture for RFID taxonomy of currently available RFID technology and systems. The taxonomy is based on a sound service-oriented and multi-agent RFID architecture framework. Multi-agent plays a role in the formulation of the taxonomy. It can be used by both novices and RFID practitioners to gain an understanding of the “next big thing” technology, the architectural considerations for designing and implementing a successful RFID system.
