With the development of application scale of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology in Internet of vehicles (IOV), the scenarios of multi-reader and multi-tag have become increasingly common. Firstly, the relationship between IOV and RFID technology is presented in this paper. Moreover, key of electronic vehicle identification (EVI) is presented, which is the main application of RFID in IOV. Finally, the novel semi-physical verification system based on photoelectric sensing is introduced for dynamic testing of RFID in EVI. The experimental results show that the testing method as well as system is applicable not only for reading range test of single-tag scenario, but also for anti-collision test of multi-tag scenario. The proposed method has good characteristics in terms of speed and accuracy. Thus, the research of this paper is very useful for testing of EVI RFID system performance in a variety of harsh environments.
