Mobile Real-Time Tracking System Based on the XCREAM (XLogic Collaborative RFID/USN-Enabled Adaptive Middleware)

Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 377)


The main objective of this paper is to provide people who use smartphones with a convenient way of getting useful information by making their smartphones communicate with the XCREAM (XLogic Collaborative RFID/USN-Enabled Adaptive Middleware). We have developed the XCREAM, which is a smart mediator between many types of sensor devices and applications. It gathers a variety of raw data from many types of USN devices, such as temperature or humidity sensors and RFID readers. It also distributes the collected event data to the appropriate applications according to the pre-registered scenarios. In addition, we have been extending the external interface of the XCREAM, where the XCREAM receives data from smartphones as well as ordinary USN devices. Furthermore, the extension enables the XCREAM to deliver the sensor data to the corresponding smartphone(s) in order to make applications for the smartphone(s) be more flexible and interactive. In this paper, we present a simple but feasible scenario that helps a package receiver simply track the current location of its delivery truck for the package.
