Impletation notes on RFID Markov Model of paper "Analysis of the Power Outage Effects in RFID"
- Note 1:
This chain allows to compute analitically several statistics related to the interrogation process: throughput (in tags/slot),
probability of full population identification after M frames, and the mean identification time (in slots). This chain can be
easily adapted to any FSA policy as shown in the publication and in the notebooks. A capture effect probability function can be
defined (taking the number of contenders as an argument), and also the outage probability in the downlink.
- Note 2:
Provided materials include Mathematica notebooks to performs
computations (IMPORTANT NOTE: COMPUTATIONS USE CUDA, YOU NEED
GPUs TO SUPPORT THESE OPERATIONS, A PREVIOUS VERSION WITHOUT CUDA SUPPORT IS ALSO PROVIDED BUT IT IS MUCH SLOWER),
and validation scripts for Matlab.
