October 26, 2004—Hewlett Packard is looking beyond the standard track-and-trace application of RFID technology into more sophisticated uses that combine RFID with sensor networks and video capturing. The computing giant this week previewed its Palo Alto-based RFID Demo Center where a number of such uses were showcased. One example includes a large server farm equipped with RFID tags, sensors, and readers. The system allows not only the ability to accurately inventory the servers but also provides information about exact server location, opened/closed status of server rack doors, and server temperature. HP's idea is that blending RFID with sensor technology expands the universe of potential applications far beyond simple asset management into systems that provide data about an item's historical and real-time environmental conditions. With two and a half years of in-house RFID experience, the company is committed to the technology, having announced in September an allocation of $150 million to its RFID initiatives over the next half-decade.
