- Playing With RFID
At the annual RFID Journal LIVE! conference and event in Las Vegas, attendees spent some downtime at two arcade-style games designed to show RFID in action.
- The 5-Cent RFID Tag
The promise of a 5-cent tag has many manufacturers and retailers dreaming of a truly automated supply chain. But can it really be achieved? And if so, how long will it take until you can actually buy one? RFID Journal reports.
- Startup Puts RFID in the Spotlight
PharmaSeq has developed RFID transponders powered by light. The ultra-low cost devices could be used against counterfeiting. They can also be coated with special polymers to detect DNA and other molecules.
- How RFID Aids Alzheimer's Patients
Researchers at Intel are developing systems that use RFID and sensors to assist people with cognitive impairments. The work could lead to smart homes for the elderly and infirm, and one day, all of us.
- The End of Counterfeiting?
Ravikanth Pappu is developing inexpensive plastic tokens that can be used to authenticate items. When combined with RFID tags, they could make it nearly impossible to sell forged goods.
- Taking RFID Beyond Identification
Prof. Ted Selker and his Context Aware Computing Group at MIT are using RFID to power sensors, transmitters and other microelectronic devices.
- Breakthrough on 1-Cent RFID Tag
Researchers at Infineon have found a way to create microchips on common packaging materials. One day, chips may be printed with commercial processes for less than a penny.
- RFID Sensors: From Battlefield Intelligence To Consumer Protection
The U.S. military is funding the development of low-cost RFID sensors to gather information about battlefield conditions. The same technology could one day tell you when food is spoiled or tainted.
- Sensors to Network the World
Intel is working with researchers at Berkeley to develop tiny sensors that can form ad hoc networks and provide feedback on the physical world.
- A New Approach to RFID
University of Pittsburgh professor Marlin Mickle has developed a novel approach to RFID. His PENI tag "harvests" energy to transmit back a unique ID, which improves performance.
