Are On-Metal RFID Tags Vibration-Resistant?
Could they withstand the vibration of railway tracks, for example?
It would depend on the specific tag you used, but in general, I would say yes. On-metal passive tags are highly resilient and durable. The chip-antenna attachment is the biggest point of failure, but for ruggedized tags, the inlay should be protected against any damage caused by vibration. If you are using active RFID transponders, you should check with the provider to determine whether vibration tests have been conducted. Many active tags are employed on rail cars, though some are not designed for the rigors of use on railways.
