Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


It has been undergoing a huge development especially starting from the second half of the 20th century. Before then RFID has been used, for example by the British during World War II, to track objects and to recognize the difference between their own and the German aircrafts. RFID has since then been spread and better known widely all across the world, and it is today used to solve lots of problems as well as make many different processes function automatically and more efficient. In the future the possibilities with and the needs of RFID will keep on developing and that will mean a huge optimization of the RFID standards. The fact that RFID does not require physical contact with a tag or an object to register or even read it is only one of many reasons for RFID’s popularity. In this project it is our aim to construct and develop a design based on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to make it easier for friends in groups or camps to locate each other during the Roskilde Festival. Most people who have experienced a music festival recognize the feeling of getting away from friends as for example at the Roskilde Festival just before another favourite concert is about to begin even though you have made an appointment to meet in an exact spot. You have tried to call your friends’ phone but either it is turned off or there simply is not any connection at all. Since you cannot find your friends or contact them by phone, you now have to enjoy the concert on your own which is far from as great as enjoying it together with them. We would like to examine whether it is in fact a problem that friends get lost or have a hard time finding each other and whether it would minimize such a problem if they are actually able to find each other for example with a system like FriendFinder? And if it is a problem, then more exactly how big it actually is? To evaluate this we have conducted an interview with the director of development working for the organisation of Roskilde Festival as well as developed a questionnaire to be answered by other students at Roskilde University. In addition we are looking at the pros and cons not only of RFID but also of Barcodes as well as of GPS.
