In this paper, we share our recent work related to Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) sensor network with readers. The work mainly focus on the protocol for network system to perform the task of autonomous decentralized data distribution with consideration of economic and low-power RFID-sensor module scheme. We analyzed data pitfall in distributed RFID-sensor network, revealing the reason lies in the phenomenon. A distributed solution to tackle the problem has been designed in a simple way. The test results show that the system with proposed approach provides an efficient and more balanced in data distribution which proves the protocol is feasible for the application scenario.
