What is involved in tagging tires? How is this accomplished?
Generally speaking, deployments in the tire industry have been carried out using passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) RFID technology. Passive UHF RFID provides the read range required to track tires at a distance of 10 to 20 feet. Tagging tires has either been accomplished by embedding a transponder in each tire (which requires special processes to ensure that the tag does not destroy the tire’s integrity), or by placing a label on the tire. Labels require special adhesive, I’m told, because standard labels will not adhere to new tires.
