Since a radio frequency identification (RFID) transponder (tag) generates both location and time information when it enters and leaves a reader, the trajectory of a moving, tagged object can be traced. Due to the time intervals between entries to successive readers, during which tags are not tracked, accurate tracing of complete trajectories can be difficult. To overcome this problem, we propose a tag trajectory indexing scheme called TR-tree (R-tree-based tag trajectory index) that can trace tags by combining the local trajectories at each reader. In experiments, this scheme showed superior performance compared with other indices.
