- Is the RFID Industry Ready for Growth?
There are two important issues that need to be addressed as the technology becomes mainstream.
- An Event for the Energy, Mining and Construction Sectors
A conference hosted by RFID Journal will educate companies in these industries about how RFID can deliver benefits today, and a standards workshop following the event will help them shape how the technologies are used.
- A New RFID Certification
The International RFID Institute will offer its first certification exam at RFID Journal LIVE! 2014.
- The Year Ahead
Expect to see RFID adoption accelerate, but not explode.
- Another Year of Progress
RFID technology continues to mature, but has not yet crossed the chasm.
- Getting Ready for the Future Supply Chain
RFID Forum 2012, hosted by the University of Arkansas, offers an opportunity to see the new RFID Research Center lab and learn about item-level deployments.
- Honoring the Life of Gay Whitney
On June 28, the RFID industry lost someone who contributed a great deal to radio frequency identification, and we owe it to her to pause and reflect on all that she did.
- Why the RFID Industry Needs a Certification Program
A robust program that could replace CompTIA's RFID+ courses is important, because it would help the industry to develop the human resources necessary to deploy RFID systems on a grand scale.
- Still Crazy After All These Years
Why I believe more passionately in radio frequency identification now than I did when I first launched RFID Journal, 10 years ago this week.
- The Year That Was
2011 saw some economic ups and downs, but many companies turned to RFID to track the locations of their products and assets—and to monitor their conditions.
- U.S. Apparel Retailers Drive RFID Adoption
Large and midsize retailers are moving forward with deployments, as the industry comes together under the VICS Item Level RFID Initiative to ensure that companies embrace standards and common best practices.
- The Value of an HF EPC Standard
Although GS1's ratification of a high-frequency standard did not generate a lot of buzz, it is good news for end users.
- Leadership Is Necessary to Get RFID Right
To truly achieve transformational change, leaders in different industries will need to step up and help guide the adoption of radio frequency identification.
- Collaboration Can Accelerate RFID Adoption
Competitors working together can speed up the adoption of radio frequency identification, by agreeing on standards and how to implement them—which benefits all players.
- Interoperability Is Possible
The GS1 US RFID Apparel Demo, staged at RFID Journal LIVE! 2011, showed that it is relatively easy to share data with supply chain partners.
