Radio frequency identification is hardware consisting of transponders or tags and readers (also known as interrogators). RFID systems also have software elements, including firmware and software that runs on the readers, often middleware that filters the data, and back-end systems that turn tag reads into useful information about inventory levels or the locations of assets.
