This paper focuses on distributed data query in intermittently connected passive RFID networks, which are characterized by extraordinarily limited communication capacity and asynchronous and opportunistic communication links. To address such unique challenges, we propose a distributed data query framework that clusters RFID readers and establishes a 0-1 Knapsack model based on dynamic packet appraisal to enable highly efficient data transmission. We implement a prototype by using Alien RFID gears and carry out experiments that involve 52 volunteers for 14 days to evaluate the proposed data query framework.
