Battery-Free Bluetooth Tagging Workshop Added to LIVE! Agenda

By RFID Journal

RFID Journal announced today that a new program, sponsored by Wiliot, has joined the conference lineup.

RFID Journal has added the Battery-Free Bluetooth Tagging Workshop to its RFID Journal LIVE! 2022 conference agenda. The program is sponsored by Wiliot, which pioneered the use of battery-free Bluetooth tags for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. LIVE! 2022 will be held on May 17-19 at the Mandalay Bay resort in Las Vegas, and the workshop will take place on the afternoon of May 18.

All attendees will receive a Wiliot starter kit enabling them to explore the vast potential of Bluetooth technology, including the ability to monitor the temperatures, locations and movements of objects. Attendees will learn about the differences between Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) tags and BLE beacons, the standards involved, how and where to use BLE tags, and the basics of a BLE infrastructure required to tag objects. In addition, there will be hands-on training with the Wiliot starter kit.

"RFID Journal and the conference are the places that many of us went to get up to speed, and we continue to visit to keep up-to-date on everything that's important in the world of RFID," says Steve Statler, Wiliot's senior VP of marketing. "This workshop is a landmark bridge between the worlds of passive RFID and BLE. Attendees will learn how BLE tagging can enhance their data capture infrastructure and improve the way they do business."

RFID Journal LIVE! will feature more than 70 educational sessions in seven industry-specific and six technical and how-to conference tracks. New this year are tracks designed to help suppliers meet and benefit from retailers' tagging requirements, and to show how to integrate RFID into a manufacturing line. The event will feature RFID Professional Institute certification training, the co-located IEEE RFID 2022 event, the RFID Journal Awards and fast-track training provided by RFID4U, as well as exhibits and demonstrations conducted by the industry's leading technology firms.

Exhibitors at RFID Journal LIVE! will offer various BLE solutions for Internet of Things applications. For more information, visit
