Disney Research use RFID Intelligence to Robots, Toys

Disney Research, a division of Walt Disney Co. , recently published a spate of academic papers describing novel uses of radio frequency identification and related technologies. These projects could one day help the company to track everyday interactions between people and things, as well as create robots able to identify individuals.


The authors of one such research paper describe a prototype system called ID-Match, which uses passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID technology to facilitate "natural interactions" between humans and robots. The group has found, through laboratory research and testing, that a hybrid computer-vision and RFID solution can be employed to enable an autonomous robot to quickly identify and localize individuals within a group, thereby allowing for a natural and personalized interaction.
