RFID applied to the built environment: Buried Asset Tagging and Tracking System
Abstract: Within this paper we argue that underground utilities are an area where RFID technology can be applied, with a high degree of accuracy, to locate the buried pipes and others underground equipment. The paper describes an ongoing project to develop a Buried Asset Tagging and Tracking System (BATTS) using RFID technology. Results from initial field trials are considered and issues and concerns relating to developing such an application of RFID are discussed.
