“Imagine going to the grocery store, loading up your cart with a ton of stuff and just walking out…you get in your car and receive a text, the bank has deducted your shopping bill amount precisely. You drive home happily, knowing that you will never have to stand in a line or swipe a card again while buying groceries.”
RFID is the answer to all the prayers of overwhelmed grocery shoppers and traders who are drowning in inventory lists to track an item in a massive warehouse. Radio Frequency Identification is a new technology that helps in streamlining work processes through tracking and identifying the location of objects.
The main components essential for RFID to function are the reader and the tag. The tag is a transponder that has been programmed with information and the reader is a decoder that has to interpret the data. A scanning antenna on the reader receives electro-magnetic signals from the tag and then signals a system to store the relevant data.
Everyone is to gain from this time saving technology which is a boon to commercial, security and even personal aspects of modern day living. For instance, an automobile manufacturer can keep tabs on the progress of production by tracking the products’ progress through the assembly lines. A pharmaceutical company with many items in many warehouses can keep tabs on which items are placed in which location.
Farmers have been using this technology for quite some time to keep track of their livestock. Many animal lovers who keep pets at home also tend to opt for a micro chip insertion so they can track their pets if they get lost. Microchips can also be inserted into clothing, cash and other possessions as well!
In the arena of Event Management, companies could use RFID for Events Tracking and RFID for Management Solutions, RFID for Attendance tracking for Events and RFID for Attendance tracking for Conferences.
RFID is gaining incredible popularity across various industries as well. It can be used in Logistics, Supply Chain Management, Inventory Tracking, Materials Management, Access Control, Tool Tracking, Asset Tracking and Management Systems as well as Attendance Tracking.
When it comes to GPS tracking, RFID is established well enough across the web and mobile with GPS tracking applications for web and GPS tracking applications for mobile. In the case of mobile tracking, RFID is accessible across both platforms, i.e. GPS tracking applications for IOS and GPS tracking applications for Android as well.
The biggest hit out of RFID’s various advantages is probably its benefits to security. Here’s why? – From petty store thefts to national security, RFID can build impenetrable systems that cannot be tip toed around. They are inserted into passports to improve border control. In Corporate Offices, they can be used to control building access. Tamper-resistant RFID tags can help protect sensitive documents like national defense plans or corporate R&D plans. Even photocopy machines can use this technology to trace the number of photocopies being made of sensitive documents. It gets that intricate!
The benefits never end. Let’s take a look at just a few more functions of this game changing tech:
- RFID can be used to track patients admitted in nursing homes and hospitals.
- It can help ensure that school children are accounted for.
- It can reduce drug counterfeiting.
- It can ensure the proper delivery of shipping containers without them ever being opened.
- It can prevent theft on-site at industries and warehouse and at stores, banks or any Institution.
