<p>In this paper we analyze whether recent Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology can be used to improve the localization of mobile robots and persons in their environment. In particular we study the problem of localizing RFID tags with a mobile platform that is equipped with a pair of RFID antennas. We present a probabilistic measurement model for RFID readers that allow us to accurately localize RFID tags in the environment. We also demonstrate how such maps can be used to localize a robot and persons in their environment. Finally, we present experiments illustrating that the computational requirements for global localization can be seriously reduced by fusing RFID information with laser data.</p>
