Radio frequency identification has become synonymous with most track-and-trace systems currently used in automotive production. Whether it's to identify large parts, such as car bodies, or smaller components, parts bins and tools, RFID technology has rapidly become the leading method for automated track-and-trace processes. With that in mind, RFID Journal hosted a July 27 webinar titled  "How to Leverage RFID to Improve Automotive Production," sponsored by  Sick AG. The webinar offered insights on how to increase efficiency and improve the tracking of automotive parts throughout an entire production process.
