Enhanced Passive RFID Based Disaster Management for Coal Miners

Amith S. Bhat, B. Raghavendra, and G. Narendra Kumar
Abstract—Solutions exist to cater the various aspects of an emergency response in coal mines that are subjected to the quality and availability of relevant information often oblivious due to inevitable and unpredictable nature of disasters. The major challenge is to implement a scheme which is economically viable, reasonably accurate and modestly enforced with least maintenance. Inexpensive Passive RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags offer a simplistic yet elegant approach in cumulating pertinent data which primarily aids in potentially disastrous situations and also serves to increase productivity in mundane activity of the mine. This paper presents a novel concept of organizing and interpreting the cognition of identities employing passive RFID tag with an additional radio frequency energy harvesting module capable of delivering power upto -19 dBm in turn fostering the range and readability figures. The first step towards a palpable database to make dynamic evacuation plan a substantial reality is emphasized. A comparative study is shown between a normal RFID tag and the enhanced one, which exhibits promising results.
