How Is RFID Used in the Tire Industry?
What is involved in tagging tires? How is this accomplished?
Generally speaking, deployments in the tire industry have been carried out using passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID technology. Passive UHF RFID provides the read range required to track tires at a distance of 10 to 20 feet. Tagging tires has either been accomplished by embedding a transponder in each tire (which requires special processes to ensure that the tag does not destroy the tire's integrity), or by placing a label on the tire. Labels require special adhesive, I'm told, because standard labels will not adhere to new tires.
