  • Introduction
    • In the present, many service industries including logistics, manufacturing companies and healthcare need automatic identification procedures (Auto ID) in transferring information.
    • The barcode scanner was an alternative in some considerable time ago however due to some limitations, RFID becomes to be an optimal solution today.
  • What is RFID?
    • Radio Frequency Identification ( RFID ) is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders.
    RFID tag
  • Type of RFID tag Using standard 802.11b and d. Better for locating and tracking Battery Up to 100m but shorter in closed space. Depends on supplier; about 5x5x2 cm. WiFi More expensive and larger than passive tags. Battery UHF: up to 50m. Size varies, but about 2-3 cm². Active In general, range depends on frequency, reader and environment. 868-915 MHz same frequency as mobile phone, so interference with equipment is possible. Reader output 10mm to 6 meters. UHF: 3m or more. Smallest tag (0.4 mm²). Thinner than paper. In USA approved for subcutaneous use in humans. Passive Comments Power Range Size Tag
  • RFID VS Barcode
    • Human intervention is required to scan a barcode, whereas in most applications an RFID tag can be detected "hands off."
    • Barcodes must be visible on the outside of product packaging. RFID tags can be placed inside the packaging or even in the product itself.
    • You must have "line of sight" to read a barcode. RFID tagged items can be read even if they are behind other items.
    • The readability of barcodes can be impaired by dirt, moisture, abrasion, or packaging contours.  RFID tags are not affected by those conditions.
    • RFID tags have a longer read range than barcodes.
    • RFID tags have read/write memory capability; barcodes do not.
    • More data can be stored in an RFID tag than can be stored on a barcode
