RFID — Radio Frequency Identification — is an extremely powerful, versatile and reusable Automatic Data Collection (ADC) technology that uses radio-frequency waves to identify, track and manage items.
Stock, work in progress, people, assets, vehicles, animals, all sorts of movable items can be identified through the transfer of data between an electronic tag which contains a unique identification code and a reader.
RFID is fast, reliable, and does not require physical sight or contact between reader/scanner and the tagged item. This non-line of sight advantage means that tags can be read through a variety of substances such as ice, paint, dirt, grime, and other visually and environmentally challenging conditions. In these conditions, barcodes or other optically read technologies would be useless.
