A library fitted with ‘Smart Library’ technology is able to be open to library users without being staffed. The technology enables remote control of library buildings, including automatic doors, lighting, self-service kiosks and public computers. This allows us to significantly extend library opening hours, so more people can use the library at times that is convenient for them.
In this project, we propose a device-free method to record reader’s activity in the library. The method utilizes RFID tags attached on each books in the bookshelf and the interaction between reader andbooks to real time monitor reader’s activity.
