However, the content depends on the transponder: in general, active tags contain more information than passive tags, which contain only one unique number. RFID readers are installed at pick-up and drop-off points where they read the data. Using radio frequency waves, transponders identify each container automatically – without additional handling or human intervention – as it passes through these points, even Read More
