The Implementation of Electronic Intelligent Tag System Based on Wireless Sensor Network


Recently, Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) has been widely applied in many fields. In this paper, we design and implement a WSN-based Electronic Intelligent Tag System (EITS) to provide intelligent management of the modern supermarkets. As a main transceiver, nRF24L01+ wireless module is used in this system, which will make it possible to achieve low-power and low-cost for EITS. This system fully embodies the advantages and characteristics of WSN. This paper will introduce the system architecture, hardware structure and software design in details; and put forward a specific solution. Finally, we achieve the intelligent management of the mall based on wireless sensor network technology.
