How Can I Use RFID to Identify Freight?
I am looking for a radio frequency identification solution that can pinpoint a box for a freight application. Our constraints: It would be used both indoors and outdoors, the holder would be moving at a low speed, detection range would be up to 1 meter (3.3. feet), and there would be no obstacle between the reader and the tag. Which manufacturers should I contact, and what price can I expect to pay?
The cost would depend on whether you utilized ruggedized tags or labels, as well as on the volume. Labels can be purchased at 20 cents apiece in reasonably high volumes, while hard tags can cost several dollars or more each, depending on how durable they need to be.
