Can GPS Track RFID Tags?

Posted By RFID Journal, 10.07.2013

Would it be possible to monitor a radio frequency identification system via the Global Positioning System?

No, that would not be possible. The Global Positioning System employs a different frequency than RFID tags do, as well as different communication protocols. However, there are RFID tags that have been integrated with GPS devices. A recent post in this forum, in fact, dealt with that very issue (see Has RFID Been Integrated With GPS?).

Integrating a GPS device with GPRS communication and an RFID reader will relay Locational information of the RFID Tag being read by the reader. GPS is NOT a communication mode therefore it cannot relay information,
