RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. Is the wireless non-contact use of radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data, for the purposes of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. Some tags are powered by and read at short ranges (a few meters) via magnetic fields (electromagnetic induction). Others use a local power source such as a battery, or else have no battery but collect energy from the interrogating EM field, and then act as a passive transponder to emit microwaves or UHF radio waves (i.e., electromagnetic radiation at high frequencies). Unlike a barcode, the tag does not necessarily need to be within line of sight of the reader, and may be embedded in the tracked object.
RFID can be used in many applications in the industry such as:
- Tracking of goods in production and logistics
- Asset management
- People tracking
- Animal Tracking
- Vehicle tracking
- Other special applications ( contactless payment, passports, toll collection etc)
RFID solutions are very complicated, and needs not only a very special analysis to set up the process and find the appropriate equipment, but also very special software not only for the process but also to manage the equipment and the date (middleware)
AcmonData worked with RFID equipment in many projects, having the experience to analyze, implement and support any RFID solution.
