- RFID Earns a Second Chance
Apparel retailers are using the technology to improve inventory management, which increases sales and reduces working capital.
- RFID Research Supports Real-World Experimentation
Simulation can be a good tool for modeling the effects of known potential RFID process changes, but real-world experimentation may uncover additional benefits and changes.
- At-Home Product Life-Cycle Management
Manufacturers and customers can monitor consumer electronics devices for maintenance, repair and recycling.
- Designer Tags for RTIs
RFID providers have developed tags that make it easier and more cost-effective to track and manage returnable transport items.
- How RFID Can Provide Critical Real-Time Production Information
Real-time information regarding key performance indicators is pivotal for driving processes toward meeting a company's production targets.
- 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.
- 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.
- In The Name of RFID
Selling a radio frequency identification solution establishes clarity and confidence.
- Passive, Yet Worldly, Tags
EPC Gen 2 on-metal tags feature consistent read rates across regions, so they can track assets globally.
- Checking Items in a Group
By using a group ID as well as an individual tag ID, we could verify a shipment of goods, reduce shrinkage and validate receiving without perfect read rates.
- RFID-ROI-SME Project Promises Big Help for Small Business
Eight pilot deployments are designed to show how RFID can become a productivity tool during a time of financial recession, especially for companies that operate under constrained budgets.
- Innovation Is Stupid
Amazon, eBay and Google were all dumb ideas.
- Making Objects Smarter
New RFID reader chips can be embedded in products to give them the intelligence to interact with people and the world around them.
