As RFID tags grow in capacity and sophistication, the possible methods for storing information on them becomes ever more complex. Whereas tags carried just a simple “license plate” identifier in the past, they now have a full random-access “user memory” that can be employed by applications to store a variety of business data. This session will provide an overview of the myriad of data standards that have evolved to take advantage of these features, including the popular Electronic Product Code (EPC); the ISO/IEC 15962 standard for user memory and its variations, including the latest “packed objects” standard; and the different data systems, including GS1 Application Identifiers (AIs), ANSI Data Identifiers (DIs) and aerospace Text Element Identifiers (TEIs).
