This paper proposes an RFID benchmark and simulator in order to evaluate anti-collision algorithms. The proposed suite was specially developed to the MAC layer evaluation since to our knowledge there is no standard on RFID anti-collision simulator software. Although some simulators for RFID networks have been proposed, none of them are designed to the MAC layer performance evaluation. This paper, however, does present the design and validation of an RFID benchmark suite based on the EPCGlobal Class 1 Generation 2 standard which can help researchers to provide fair and fast comparisons between the existing algorithms.
