UCLA Develops RFID Middleware

The university developed the software as part of its Wireless Internet for the Mobile Enterprise Consortium.

The Wireless Internet for the Mobile Enterprise Consortium, a program at the University of California at Los Angeles, is expected to demonstrate a radio-frequency identification middleware application at the RFID conference at the campus Oct. 12.

Chi-Cheng (Peter) Chu, senior researcher at the consortium, says the middleware runs on a distributed system based on Web services and built on a Microsoft .Net framework, allowing the middleware management application to be distributed to more than one device.

The middleware is designed to run on servers hosting supply-chain or warehouse-management applications to assess and process the RFID data. The application may be used for medical and pharmaceutical industries, as well as the Department of Defense.

The consortium that developed the software was established to research RFID technology, such as middleware, and wireless related research. The middleware software was developed by four to five full-time researchers and Ph.D. students.

Companies that help advise and fund the consortium include BEI Technologies, Boeing, Computer Associates, France Telecom, Hewlett-Packard, Hughes Network Systems, Intel, ISMB, Northrop Grumman, PDC, Qualcomm, Satyam Computers, Siemens, Tata Consultancy Services, Tata Infotech, Texas Instruments, and Sprint.
