- 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.
- What's In a Name?
Choosing the right tag identifier now prevents headaches later.
- RFID License Plates: A Successful In-Metal RFID Application
University of Bremen researchers explain how a vehicle's license plate can function as an antenna for a passive UHF tag, outperforming smart labels on windshields, as well as on-metal tags.
- Identifying Items
Apparel suppliers need to decide how they will assign unique serial numbers.
- Toward a Zero-Injury Workplace
Real-time safety solutions protect employees in dangerous industries.
- Securing Small Shipments
An RFID e-seal designed for ammunition, file or medical boxes can monitor for tampering.
- Designer Tags for RTIs
RFID providers have developed tags that make it easier and more cost-effective to track and manage returnable transport items.
- 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.
- RFID's Untapped Potential
Analyzing aggregated data can improve our understanding of processes.
- No Free Lunches With RFID
We must balance the cost of information with improvement in decisions and actions.
- The Multitech Approach
Vendors are integrating technologies at the hardware level, making it easier for end users to deploy location systems.
- 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.
- Toward a Cheap Sensor Tag
The transformation of a technology negative into a positive could make it affordable to monitor the condition of many products and things.
