What are the best options available in terms of readers that can be installed in forklifts or buggies, can be powered by the battery of a vehicle itself and can transmit the collected data wirelessly via Wi-Fi?

Venture Research offers a passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) reader designed for use on a forklift. Intermec (now part of Honeywell Scanning and Mobility) offers one as well, called the IV7 Vehicle Mount RFID Reader. Both of these use a vehicle's electrical system for power. Zebra Technologies offers the battery-operated RF5000 (developed by Motorola, which it acquired).
