Here are five benefit stacks with areas of inefficiencies that can be attacked, as well as additional benefits that can be achieved.
Wirelessly networked sensors—devices that run their own operating system and communicate with one another, rather than a single reader—are relatively […]
RFID tags and wireless sensors share several traits. Both communicate via radio waves, contain a serial number and require the same basic IT infrastructure to aggregate, analyze and distribute data to the people who can act on it. RFID is, in fact, the foundation on which sensor networks are built (once you identify an object, only then does it become possible to know its condition). Here are some common terms related to sensor technology
From receiving and warehouse management to yard management and shipping, here’s how RFID is helping five companies save millions.
Suppliers will eventually be able to pass some of the cost for RFID tags to companies downstream in the supply chain.
