Electronic systems are progressively replacing mechanical devices or human operation for identifying people or objects in everyday-life applications. Especially, the contactless identification systems available today have several advantages, but they cannot handle easily several simultaneously present items. This paper describes a solution to this problem, based on blind source separation techniques. The effectiveness of this approach is experimentally demonstrated, especially by using a real-time DSP-based implementation of the proposed system.
