Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is a major enabler of Internet of Things (IoT), and has been widely applied in tag-intensive environments. Tag collision arbitration is considered as a crucial issue of such RFID system. To enhance the reading performance of RFID, numerous anti-collision algorithms have been presented in previous literatures. However, most of them suffer from the slot efficiency bottleneck of 0.368. In this paper, we revisit the performance of tag identification in Aloha-based RFID anti-collision approaches from the perspective of time efficiency. Based on comprehensive reviews and analysis of the existing algorithms, a novel partitioning approach is proposed to maximize identification performance in framed slotted Aloha based UHF RFID systems. In the proposed approach, the tag set is divided into many groups which only contains a few tags, and then each group is identified in sequence. Benefiting from the optimal partition, the proposed algorithm can achieve a significant performance improvement. Simulation results supplemented by prototyping tests show that the proposed solution achieves an asymptotical slot efficiency up to 0.4348, outperforming the existing UHF RFID solutions.
