RFID, localization, optimization, combinational method, antenna deployment.


This paper presents a method of search for the optimal antenna deployment for use in spatial localization systems based on the radio
frequency identification technology (RFID). It involves minimizing the average error of a combinational localization method consisted of a
trilateration algorithm, fingerprinting algorithm, and an intersectional algorithm. During the computational experiment we found the optimal
solution among several antenna deployment patterns for a square localization field. The solution is a grid pattern with antenna interrogation
zones oriented towards the field center.
