Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: The purpose of building smart home system is some home devices (audio and video equipment, lighting systems, air conditioning control, security systems, digital cinema systems, network appliances, etc.) through smart home network automation, broadband and wireless networks, and we can achieve remote control home devices. The paper proposes application of RFID technology and ontology model in designing smart home system. RFID system is composed of two parts: the read / write unit and electronic transceiver. RFID technology can identify the moving objects and can also identify multiple tags; the operation is fast and convenient. Ontology is the concept of shared explicit and formal specification; it can be used to describe the concepts and relationships between concepts. This paper uses RFID embedded platforms and other types of home sensor ontology model to design a smart home control system.


Keywords: Smart home, RFID, Ontology.
