The possible capture effects of the revolving door pose a major public policy concern because of the large number of regulators who enter or exit the revolving door at key regulatory agencies.
Capture effect is caused by the fact that responding tags may be scattered in different distances from the reader; the signals from a tag may overwhelm that from other responding tags that can be captured by the reader.
These findings are in line with prior findings showing an earlier or temporally less variable capture effect and often even a selective capture effect for top-down matching than nonmatching cues [12, 21, 23, 35, 36].
Thus, although Gibson (1996a, 1996b) showed that perceptual factors can influence the search for old versus new objects, and that some form of masking might contribute to attentional capture effects, the results of Yantis and colleagues (1984, 1988, 1996), together with results from other laboratories (e.g., Oonk & Abrams, 1998; Folk & Remington, 1999), appear to give a special status to new objects for capturing attention.
MRCT works efficiently even under the influence of capture effect and takes less overhead in the tag identification compared to the state-of-the-art protocol [9].
