Eldorado Research Institute Project Saves Lives via RFID
An RFID system to ensure the correct usage of security equipment in the electrical sector won the Best Poster award at this year's IEEE conference, which was co-located with RFID Journal LIVE! 2019.
Celpa, which is piloting the system, is among the members of the Equatorial Group, which supports the Eldorado Research Institute's RFID project and has four electric power distributors in the north and northeast sections of Brazil. These are Celpa, Cemar, Cepisa and Ceal. The project is being sponsored by the research, development and innovation fund of Brazil's National Electric Energy Agency (Aneel), and is technically coordinated by Celpa and Cemar. Driving and development are under the guidance of the Eldorado Research Institute.
Flávia Cabral da Costa, the project's technical lead at the Eldorado Research Institute, says the RFID antennas were designed internally at the institute and were made, in part, by domestic manufacturers, such as FR4 and Alfapress, and by a Chinese manufacturer, involving flexible materials such as polyamide. "In the current version," he states, "for the proof-of-concept, we use RFID technology with an RFID transceiver module from Impinj."EM Microelectronics, Farsens and NXP Semiconductors, were used for the initial concept validation phase.
