The misreading problem of a passive ultra-high-frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification (RFID) tag is a frequent problem arising in the field of librarianship. Unfortunately, existing solutions are something inefficient, e.g., extra resource requirement, inaccuracy, and empiricism. To this end, under comprehensive analysis on the passive UHF RFID application in the librarianship scenario, a novel and judicious approach based on RFID localization is proposed to address such a misreading problem. Extensive simulation results show that the proposed approach can outperform the existing ones and can be an attractive candidate in practice.
