  • Using PNR as a New Approach to Enhancing RFID Channel Security Via Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS)
    Published March 2010
    Salman Altaf and Mumtaz A. Kamala, of the University of Bradford School of Computing, Information and Media, and Qudoos Yousuf, of Innovation North Leedsmet University, outline how retailers, manufacturers, hospitals, federal agencies and other organizations can use RFID to improve functionality and product quality, and maintain a good checks-and-balances system, without experiencing data security and privacy vulnerabilities. The authors discuss a proposed technique for preventing data leakage and providing protection against eavesdropping and interference, by spreading spectrum over the wideband, utilizing a suitable pseudorandom (PNR) code.

  • The Novel Use of Information Technology in Military Medicine and Mass Casualty Situation Training
    Published March 2010
    Jorma Jokela, a student at the University of Tampere, offers an academic dissertation on several novel information technologies, including short video clips, mobile medical information systems (IS) and RFID, which have become an essential part of education in the modern health-care field. In military medicine, there are special needs for novel technologies, especially when optimizing first aid and initial treatment in challenging field situations. Jokela's thesis studies the use of such technologies in the training of military medicine for mass-casualty scenarios. (126 pages)
  • Integrating a Company Logo Into a Tag Antenna Design in RFID Applications
    Published February 2010
    Tatung University's Chi-Fang Huang, Yueh-Ching Lin and Ming-Fu Kuo present a design idea for how a company's logo can be incorporated into an RFID tag antenna, in order to protect the intellectual property (IP) of that firm's tag antenna design. This white paper discusses both antenna design simulation and tag performance evaluation. (5 pages)
  • Archimedes Method and System for Tracking
    Published February 2010
    Archimedes IP Corp. outlines its system for recording location information onto a tag, so that an item's movement history can be accessed without requiring communication with a central database. This system would allow the tracking of location histories for seaborn containers, thereby providing customs officials at the final destination with location information regarding a container's entire journey after it was sealed at the origination point.
  • Leveraging ERP for Supply Chain Execution
    Published January 2010
    Companies considering supply chain execution systems to integrate shop-floor RF scanners and bar-coding within their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems face a fundamental decision: Which data model will serve as the primary system of record for manufacturing and distribution transactions? In this white paper, TAKE Supply Chain outlines the impact the choice of system architecture has on critical aspects of running a supply chain and maximizing an ERP investment. (7 pages)
  • Tag-on-Demand: The New Face of RFID
    Published January 2010
    William Faulkner, president of Logopak Corp., discusses how the increased complexity of today's auto-ID environment can be addressed by the tag-on-demand model. Faulkner outlines the company's factory-floor printing and labeling system, the Logopak 920 PFR, which can label pallets on one to three sides using self-adhesive labels in large formats with scanner-readable bar codes coupled with clearly written dates and codes. The device was chosen for Metro Group's Future Store initiative, where RFID has reduced out-of-stocks by 9 to 14 percent, assuring a more consistent availability of goods for customers. (4 pages)
  • Meeting the EPC RFID Mandates: Where to Begin
    Published January 2010
    In this white paper, Weber Marking Systems, Inc., explains why, if bar codes and other automatic-identification technologies have helped to improve the efficiencies of data accuracy and real-time information acquisition, RFID is also necessary for optimizing the supply chain. (8 pages)
  • Cross-Docking: Addressing the Technology Gap to Improve Visibility
    Published January 2010
    Cross-docking can help company executives reduce inventory costs and trim delivery times. Traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) technology, however, does not offer the visibility and accountability to optimize cross-docking efficiency. TAKE Supply Chain's Jason Howton discusses the technology requirements of a next-generation cross-docking solution. (6 pages)
