Finalists Unveiled for Eighth Annual RFID Journal Awards
The winners will be revealed at this year's LIVE! event, being held in Orlando, Fla., on Apr. 8-10.
This year, RFID Journal introduced a new award for the Best NFC Deployment, recognizing companies that are taking advantage of the unique characteristics of Near Field Communication (NFC), a short-range form of RFID. The finalists for 2014 are:
• The GunBox, from RPH Engineering, for a system of locking firearms for safety and allowing owners to open the box using an NFC tag (see RFID News Roundup: RPH Engineering Unveils RFID-Enabled Gun Safe)
The judges also selected 10 technology providers that were nominated for the Best in Show award, which will be given to the best new product being exhibited at this year's LIVE! event. The finalists are:
• HID Global, for its HID Trusted Tag platform, which can be embedded into a mobile phone, enabling authentication for "proof of presence" (see HID Global Offers Security for NFC)
In addition, RFID Journal's editors will present the 2014 Special Achievement Award to Joe Andraski, the former president and CEO of the Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Solutions Association (VICS)—which merged with GS1 US in 2012 (see GS1 and VICS to Merge)—for his support for and commitment to promoting RFID adoption at the item level in retail (see The RFID Industry Owes a Big Thanks to Joe Andraski).
LIVE! 2014 will also feature eight industry-specific and how-to conference tracks, eight in-depth preconference seminars and workshops, four post-conference seminars, a co-located event, fast-track training presented by RFID4U, and more than 200 exhibitors showcasing the latest RFID products and solutions.
