- Giving Nature a Helping Hand
With metamaterials, we can create thin RFID tags for tracking canned items.
- The Truth About RFID Read Rates
Providers of passive UHF RFID solutions need to be clearer regarding the read rates, or read reliability, that end users can expect to achieve.
- RFID and Global Warming
The same technology used to increase operational efficiencies can also save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- A New Approach to Pharmaceutical E-Pedigrees
EPCIS can support chain-of-custody verification—without a cumbersome data burden.
- How RFID Can Sharpen Your Business Intelligence
The former worldwide program director of RFID for Hewlett-Packard and Asia Pacific regional director for EPCglobal explains how the technology can be used to improve the quality of your business decisions.
- RFID Earns a Second Chance
Apparel retailers are using the technology to improve inventory management, which increases sales and reduces working capital.
- RFID Research Supports Real-World Experimentation
Simulation can be a good tool for modeling the effects of known potential RFID process changes, but real-world experimentation may uncover additional benefits and changes.
- At-Home Product Life-Cycle Management
Manufacturers and customers can monitor consumer electronics devices for maintenance, repair and recycling.
- Designer Tags for RTIs
RFID providers have developed tags that make it easier and more cost-effective to track and manage returnable transport items.
- How RFID Can Provide Critical Real-Time Production Information
Real-time information regarding key performance indicators is pivotal for driving processes toward meeting a company's production targets.
- 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.
- Using Wireless Technologies to Fight Camera Theft
If every digital camera contained a SIM or RFID module, it could log into its manufacturer's product-authentication database when switched on and, if stolen, report its whereabouts and disable itself until returned to its rightful owner.
- The Problem With Software Packages Developed by RFID Hardware Vendors
No single type of RFID hardware is the best option for every aspect of a project. Therefore, end users need to select a software solution that is entirely hardware-agnostic.
- What if RFID Were Truly Risk-Free?
To accelerate RFID adoption, we need technology providers that can muster the capability—and the nerve—to shoulder the risk of implementations.
- In The Name of RFID
Selling a radio frequency identification solution establishes clarity and confidence.
