There has been demands of context-aware systems in a hospital domain and several types of sensors have been applied as sources of medical activities. Unlike the previous passive RFID use of simply identifying objects this paper presents a system for motion detection of medical objects in a trauma bay by ranging the received signal strength indication RSSI using UHF passive RFID tags as one of those sensors that provide information on medical activities. To use passive RFID RSSI for motion detection Three different types of RSSI estimators are evaluated to process noisy RSSI and the adaptive threshold is proposed in the system to improve the resolution of detecting motion. Our system has been tested with recorded RSSI values in a laboratory and an actual trauma bay during simulated resuscitations performed by trauma teams. The proposed system has achieved 85.9 - 92.1 accuracies for most passive items that are used in a trauma bay.
