Abstract: In a technological world, every entity both natural and man-made areto be imagined as memory based objects in which information can be stored and queried later. Tracking, monitoring the location, environment status of these objects has been the basis for many real time applications to make fine grained decisions to improve the operational performance. Universities and academic institutions have campuses facilitated by many fixed assets. Adding more complexity to this is the management of the assets, so far its a labour intensive, time consuming, lack of immediate response problem. We propose a framework, providing smart computing features, to overcome the everlasting worries pertaining in the managerial bodies concerned about their valuable assets in the campus. The proposed framework extracts the benefits from the RFID and cloud computing technologies, to ease and improve the work efficiency of the administrators, librarians and other responsible departments members to ensure that there is no misplacement and missing of assets that are massive in numbers. The framework enables automatic caching, filtering and processing of RFID events (using Hadoop) that are generated in a smarter campus. Proposed framework is implemented at department level and the results we got proved its feasibility for implementing in smarter campus.
