Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Features and Functions
The following category covers criteria for tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line. RFID tags include an RF transmitter that uniquely identifies the product. Transmission distance is generally up to nine meters or thirty feet. Tags are either passive or programmable. This is an expensive option and suitable for specific applications.
