Smartrac Showcases Solutions for Smart Internet of Things

Smartrac presented its Proofs solution, which is designed to increase customer loyalty and minimize counterfeiting. Proofs combines RFID and Internet of Things technologies. A Proofs-empowered Near Field Communication (NFC) tag is embedded into a physical product, enabling companies to turn goods into a media hub and deliver secure, exclusive mobile content to consumers.

The system helps users to verify product authenticity and minimize counterfeiting. It leverages Smartrac's NFC tags, equipped with NXP Semiconductors' NTAG 413 DNA chip, and its Smart Cosmos enablement platform.

Smartrac also showcased its passive RAIN RFID sensor family, including the Sensor Temperature DogBone and Sensor Tadpole, a passive water sensor tag that works on metal surfaces, such as automobile chassis. The Sensor Temperature DogBone, a passive temperature-sensing inlay, enables gapless temperature monitoring at the package or item level, thus allowing unbroken cold chains in the pharmaceutical and food industries. The sensor family is equipped with RFMicron's Magnus chips, to create passive UHF single-chip sensor solutions.

"The Internet of Things is a reality, and our innovative solutions are actively shaping it and actually making it smarter—that is Smartrac's message at RFID Journal LIVE! 2017," said Ted Danhauser, Smartrac's VP of sales for the Americas, in a prepared statement. "At Phoenix, we are for the very first time presenting our Proofs solution, which is—pun intended—an impressive proof of that message. In addition, we are showcasing products that underline our continuing ability to innovate and give impetus to the RFID industry."
