- Next-Generation EPCIS
Planned enhancements to the EPC Information Services standard will improve traceability for nonserialized items and transformation processes.
- A New Approach to Pharmaceutical E-Pedigrees
EPCIS can support chain-of-custody verification—without a cumbersome data burden.
- Toward a Zero-Injury Workplace
Real-time safety solutions protect employees in dangerous industries.
- Securing Small Shipments
An RFID e-seal designed for ammunition, file or medical boxes can monitor for tampering.
- RFID Can Simplify Maintenance of Patient-Monitoring Devices
If medical equipment manufacturers integrate dual-interface RFID chips into the devices they make, hospitals could use the technology to communicate with those devices, access maintenance records and alerts, and upgrade software.
- Good Problems
New challenges to RFID adoption signal innovation and progress.
- Innovation Is Stupid
Amazon, eBay and Google were all dumb ideas.
- The Myths of LF vs. HF
Depending upon application requirements, low-frequency passive RFID tags and readers often outperform their high-frequency counterparts—so why do people believe otherwise?
- Lessons From Air Safety
RFID could be the food supply chain's equivalent of the flight data recorder.
- The Business Case for Attacks Against RFID Applications
The goal of instituting RFID security measures should be to find a balance between an investment in security and the resulting business benefits.
- Protecting EPC Tags
In the short term, companies could use a transponder ID written to every microchip to ensure the authenticity of an EPC tag.
- Dutch RFID Interference Study Is a Worst-Case Test
A recent study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association is not in line with the reality of most current hospital RFID deployments.
- Return on Innovation
Return on investment is not the only way to calculate the value of RFID.
- Enabling Remote Health-care Applications With RFID
Radio frequency identification could offer an affordable way to serve the medical needs of the world's growing elderly population.
- Keeping Bogus Drugs Out of the Medicine Cabinet
A number of factors are conspiring to significantly increase the potential for counterfeit drugs to wind up in our homes.
