RFID Data-Capture Software

By Doug

  • TAGS

RFID allows for data capture without human intervention, and for many tags to be sensed at once. This makes RFID data capture significantly more complex than reading bar codes or human data entry. Capturing meaningful data often requires developing or customizing software in order to orchestrate RFID devices with other sensors, human interaction and back-end systems. At the same time, the data-capture infrastructure must manage many RFID interrogators and keep them running even if unattended. This session will explore how to architect a well-layered software system that separates these concerns, and illustrates typical RFID data-capture paradigms. Such understanding is essential to selecting and deploying the many commercially available data-capture hardware and software products currently on the market. The presenter will also introduce several data-capture standards, including LLRP, ALE, RM and DCI.
