Abstract
Pseudo localization principle is applied to a RFIDbased Smart Blood Stock System in order to automatize and
improve the blood management in hospitals and other storage
units. The principle is based on using redundant tags both on the
blood bags and on the drawer surface to identify and localize
each blood bag inside the cabinet and inside the drawer. A
prototype system constructed for less than 1500 USD is described
and its performance is demonstrated.
