- 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.
- Every DVD Tells a Story
It's possible to track 2,000 discs on a pallet if you pay attention to the way they're RFID-tagged, packed and stacked.
- Tracking Goods and Sensors
A new air interface protocol that connects RFID sensors with the EPCglobal network will play a pivotal role in realizing the Internet of Things.
- A Decade of Progress
An RFID evangelist, cheerleader and agent provocateur shares his views on the industry's failures and successes during the past 10 years.
- File Under "Whatever"
RFID can take the "work" out of paperwork.
- A Consumer Approach to RFID
Moving from pieces and parts systems to packaged solutions can help end users achieve a faster ROI—and accelerate RFID adoption.
- For Small to Midsize Container Companies, RFID Makes Sense
Based on a study involving a real-life logistics provider, the average payback period for an EPC Gen 2 RFID implementation is between 12 and 24 months.
- Toward Better Asset Management
RFID tools and solutions can automate asset-maintenance processes.
