This year's winners—Grupo Boticário, Volkswagen do Brasil, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, SportCor, EM Microelectronic and Tali Freed—were announced at the RFID Journal Virtually LIVE! conference.
The standards organization completed a survey of 20 fashion companies for the University of Parma's RFID Lab to contribute to its international "RFID Barometer in Retail" study, which finds that RFID is enabling omnichannel sales and the rate of stalled or failed deployments has dropped.
How real-time digital twins enable critical deliveries.
The em|aura-sense, with capacitance for moisture or touch detection, can respond to a UHF RFID reader by storing sensor data or transmitting it back to the interrogator, enabling those with existing RFID inventory-counting systems to add the tags and gain additional data.
With a transceiver, an ultrasonic sensor, Bluetooth connectivity and tagged pods, the LifeFuels bottle lets users view on an app what they've consumed and thus manage fluid intake and reordering; the company tracks inventory in-house via the pods.
Why knowing the location of students and teachers is vital.
Fresenius Kabi has developed a system of tagging its anesthesia and analgesic products so they can be read using any standard UHF RFID reader, thereby providing visibility into when drugs are received at a hospital, stored in cabinets and removed for administration to patients.
