I am looking into developing a fairly simple application for the RFID. I am a very avid disc golf player. A big part of the game is the tedious task of finding a disc in thick brush or even water. I want to make a system similar to the ball golf version, RadarGolf. I am a Junior studying Computer Engineering, so I am will fairly new into this sort of area, but I am fairly certain that I can pick up the ideas at hand.
I think the design only calls for a bunch of passive RFID tags. These I would attach to each disc that I would be throwing. I would also need a receiver that would send a dummy value and read a dummy value from the tag. The only thing I am interested in is the distance between the receiver and the tag. This I would want to somehow convey to the user in some form of a beeping sound that would increase as the user walked closer to the tag.
I hope this makes sense. If anyone has any sort of information on this topic, please respond here or, even better, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you very much for your time.
