Robust multi-objective optimization for solving the RFID network planning problem

Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is a new technology used for identifying and tracking objects or people by radio-frequency waves to facilitate automated traceability and data collection.  The RFID system consists of an electronic tag attached to an object, readers, and a middleware.  In the latest real applications based on the RFID technology, the deployment of readers has become a central issue for RFID network planning by means of optimizing several objectives such as the coverage of tags, the number of readers, and the readers/tags interferences.  In practice, the system is affect
