Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a technology for tracking and identifying assets using a simple antenna.


How does radio frequency identification (RFID) work?


Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology uses radio waves to facilitate the exchange of data between a reader/writer and a tag. This communication provides information about the tag or the element carrying the tag thus enabling easier management of processes.


A radio frequency identification system comprises of three main elements: an RFID reader/writer, an RFID tag and RFID application software. The reader/writer communicates with the tags which are located on items that are mobile while the application software runs the whole system. Unlike barcode readers which must be aligned with the barcode, RFID tag data can be read remotely.


Applications of radio frequency identification (RFID)


RFID systems provide an easy solution for data collection and asset tracking. They can be used in store product identification, airline baggage identification, production control, asset tracking, vehicle tracking, livestock identification, access control applications and supply chain control generally.
