Uses of RFID technology in various industries
What is RFID?
RFID, an acronym for radio frequency identification is a form of wireless communication.The RFID tags are a type of tracking system that use radio frequency to search, identify, track, and communicate with items and people. Essentially, RFID tags are smart labels that can store a range of information from serial numbers to a short description, and even pages of data.
RFID technology dates back to the 1940s, but it has been commercially available since the 1970s. The reduction of the hardware prices of RFID tags and readers popularized the use of this technology in one form or another commercially.Today, it is an integralpart of our daily lives and can be found in car keys, employee identification badges, highway toll tags or security access cards.
Some common uses of RFID technology include:
- Inventory management
- Asset tracking & equipment tracking
- Inventory control
- Cargo & supply chain logistics
- Vehicle tracking
- Customer service and loss control
- Improved visibility and distribution in the supply chain
- Access control in security situations
- Retail sales
- Tap-and-go credit card payments
Reindeer RFID asset tags in combination with the readers and beacons are effective in asset tracking and warehouse management. Real-time safety tracking of employees in potentially hazardous work conditions is easy with Reindeer personnel tags.
A well-known technology like RFID, is creating huge business opportunities across the industries. It is setting a new standard for industrial safetyandprecaution. Safety of the employees in a construction zone or in an industrial floor has improved drastically.Warehouse / Inventory management has increased its efficiency manifold with RFID. The demand for faster and efficient delivery models is driven with this technology.
RFID systems can increasingly be used to support internet of things deployments. Combined with GPS technology RFID can enable sensor data like temperature, movement, and location that can be wirelessly transmitted.
