An online RFID laboratory learning environment and the assessment of its user's education


Due to the increasing demand for RFID expertise and the existence of a knowledge gap between industry and academia in this domain, work has been stimulated to help spread understanding in this field and bridge the gap between theoretical examinations and industrial practices. Amongst the encouraged work, there is the I-ATMUS project (Integrated Auto-ID Technology for Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Studies) that involved developing a remotely controllable RFID laboratory system. Technological resources can now be accessed by learners through the Web technology to apply appropriate configurations to the system, conduct experiments using RFID technology, and perform statistical analysis on the acquired data. Furthermore, the developed educational tool was used by a class of student that showed improvements in their confidence, knowledge, and skills. © American Society for Engineering Education, 2009.
