The Real World of Active RFID Tags
Here's how the technology is being used today to solve real problems, and what's in store for the future.
Customers are demanding application-specific, cloud-based integrated software solutions that can be fed by multiple data-capture devices, including active, passive, Wi-Fi, HF and low-frequency (LF) RFID technologies. Furthermore, automated systems not only provide analysis, trends and graphs, and issue alerts and alarms when necessary, but also offer predictive analytics that can be used to anticipate future needs and potential problems. The "predictive actioning" takes us to the next dimension for operational decision-making.
Real-Time Location Systems
Recently, Apple has endorsed the use of iBeacons, which will proliferate in retail applications. Smartphones provide GPS and location data with hundreds of thousands of apps. Rugged tablets have achieved ubiquitous use, even supplanting PCs in many cases. The industry will see a new wave combining tablets and smartphones with battery- and/or USB-powered RFID readers with Bluetooth capability that provides valuable real-time visibility. We will increasingly want to know where assets and people are located, even while both may be on the move.
