As an important part of economic development, warehousing logistics also needs to be transformed and upgraded in order to adapt to the development of the new situation. The RFID reader records the related information of the goods to improve the efficiency of warehouse operation by identifying the RFID tags attached to the goods in batches. This paper also proposes an improved group-based anti-collision algorithm (GMQT) to solve the problem of tag collision in the process of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) identification. The simulation results show that the GMQT algorithm improves the recognition efficiency of the system. The algorithm has the advantages of small data transmission and stable performance; in particular, the recognition efficiency is not affected by the number of tags. View Full-Text
