Let's suppose we have a suitcase containing some RFID tagged objects. With a reader contained in the same box, I periodically poll the content in order to check if something is removed from the suitcase. Removed means at a distance, lets'say, >1 m. Is that strategy possible with RFID? Any idea on how to achive that otherwise? Problem is we have to indentify precisely a set of items contained in the suitcase, and understand when one of these is removed from the case, even by is id, then returned.
ADDITION Suit case must contain all what we need for the tracking. We can't rely on triangulation infrastructures in place. As a semplification, is acceptable to have the suitcase partitioned: would in this case an NFC antennas matrix help?
EDIT I'm a programmer, not an electronic engineer so I'm definitely ignorant. If there is some obvious solution to track items in a suit case, in term on when a specific item is extracted ( not stolen, so not gone at undefinitely far distance ) , any idea are welcome. Solution based on RF signal based seems IMHO a little too weak, but if you say it will work, I will try. Maybe some matrix of NFC receiver would work? Is there some solution I can buy for try? Surprisingly my googling on the topic did not produce satisfying results.
