Vehicle Navigation System Using UHF RF-ID with Two Antennas

In residential areas, sometimes there is heavy snow fall and drivers lose driving lane and go out. For the purpose of safe driving, the authors develop the vehicle navigation system with Ultra High Frequency (UHF) Radio Frequency Identification (RF-ID) to keep the driving lane. The vehicle position in the lane is written on the RF-ID tags and they are buried in the road. The experiment vehicle equips two RF-ID antennas which communicate with RF-ID tags and get vehicle location on the lane. This information is given to a driver by Graphical User Interface (GUI) and voice instruction. GUI shows vehicle location and direction to the center of lane. In order to simulate low visible condition, the authors put a bubble wrap on the windshield. The system helps keep the lane against low visibility. Comparing presented system with one antenna system, two antennas system contributes to reduce the cost of installing RF-ID tags.
