Analysis of Electromagnetic Disturbances Generated by an Autonomous RFID-Based Navigation Robot
The paper discusses the issue of EMC compatibility of autonomous navigation robots that utilize the RFID technology for surface discovery. The robots can work individually or in a group in environments equipped with RFID transponders. The need to examine EMC compatibility of such robots is pointed out, so that they can work and communicate without disturbing other devices or each other. Measurements and analysis of electromagnetic disturbances generated by a prototype of a navigation mobile robot has been carried out. Results of the measurements for the model of the robot are presented. Factors determining generation of the disturbances in the model are pointed out.
