The design of wireless technology which involves radio frequency identification (RFID) and Bluetooth technology for tagging and transmission of data that will be applied to point of sale (POS) is presented. A complete POS circuitry system has been designed to allow certain item to be a tag easily identified and localized. This is implemented by using RFID technology which will communicate with personal computer (PC) either through Ethernet or Wifi connection. An Impinj RFID reader and Bluetooth mobile phone are selected in the proposed POS system. Matlab simulation has been performed for RFID transceiver part and Bluetooth data transmission. A prototype software is developed to interface the Impinj RFID reader through the Ethernet connection. Additionally, a data encryption from Bluetooth is paired with PC to achieve a secure and simple pairing feature when customer transaction is performed. It involves hardware and software implementation. Moreover, in simulation result, a double side band modulation is used to design the RFID reader for better item tagging. The results show the feasibility of using this design for POS and achieving very good read ranges. Finally, Bluetooth system enables fast transaction and makes purchase securely by using the proposed asymmetric algorithm.
