Virtual Event Report: RFID and IoT in Europe

By RFID Journal

View the PDFs and recordings from RFID Journal's recent online event.

Companies throughout Europe are employing radio frequency identification for a variety of uses cases. With that in mind, RFID Journal hosted a virtual event last week titled  RFID and IoT in Europe 2021. This online event, sponsored by  Omni-ID, explained how a hospital is tracking medical assets; how passive RFID tags and labels can accurately measure temperatures, the fill levels of bottles and vials, or an area's moisture content; and how to alleviate supply chain bottlenecks.

Tracking Medical Devices with RFID at Tallaght University Hospital
Tallaght University Hospital's Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering Department manages and maintains approximately 8,000 medical devices. In addition to machines based in each ward, the department has a medical equipment library from which infusion and respiratory devices are loaned as needed by the clinical areas. This session outlined how the organization has reduced the amount of time personnel spend searching for devices, as well as how it has increased equipment utilization levels and improved workflow processes.

Taking Passive RFID to New Levels with Temperature, Fill-Level and Moisture Monitoring
Omni-ID, the original patent holder for on-metal RFID tags (now part of HID Global), has partnered with specialist IC manufacturer Axzon to create a range of passive RFID tags and labels that can accurately measure temperatures, the fill levels of bottles and vials, or an area's moisture content. Part of the company's Sense product line, these batteryless, maintenance-free devices have a wide range of use cases for asset tracking, monitoring and predictive maintenance. This session explained the ways in which these products can be deployed.
