Transcript

  • 1. Radio frequency Identification (image from Aimglobal 2003) ISRC Technology Briefing September 25, 2003 Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 2. A New Revolution (image fromTierney 2003) Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 3. What is RFID Bar codes vs. RFID Low-frequency RFID – 13.56 MHz standard – Inductive coupling (from Aimglobal 2000) High-frequency RFID – UHF (300-1000 MHz) – Electromagnetic wave propagation (from Aimglobal 2000) Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 4. RFID in Houston Toll booths – EZ Tag Payment systems – ExxonMobil Speedpass Access control – Schlumberger Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 5. Classification of Tags Active – Contain a battery – Longer range possible (10-15 feet or more) – Expensive (e.g., Apple has one for over $25) Semi-passive – Contain a dormant battery – Intermediate range – Mid-range price (over $1) Passive – Draw energy from an electromagnetic field – Limited range (up to 10 feet) – Cheapest to produce (30 to 50 cents) Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 6. Frequency Bands and Applications Frequency Characteristics Typical Applications Band Low Short to medium read Access control 100-500 kHz range Animal identification Inexpensive Inventory control low reading speed Car immobilizer Intermediate Short to medium read Access control 10-15 MHz range Smart cards potentially inexpensive medium reading speed High Long read range Railroad car monitoring 850-950 MHz High reading speed Toll collection systems 2.4-5.8 GHz Line of sight required Expensive (from Aimglobal 2003) Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 7. Other Applications of RFID Corporate/campus E.g., cafeteria vending, cards parking, etc. Hazardous materials Avoids the need for physical contact Luggage tagging E.g., baggage tagging and boarding passes Time and attendance To identify in- and out- management times Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 8. Benefits of RFID No need for contact or line-of-sight Can scan entire pallets at once Greater speed Low error rates Reduced counterfeiting (from RecordsAssociates 1999) Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 9. Additional Benefits Size – a grain of rice Ability to hold more data than bar codes Durability (Clinton 2002) Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 10. Drawbacks Cost – Passive tags: 30-50 cents – Would be economically viable at 5 cents Lack of standards – Proliferation of multiple operating frequencies – Need for standard electronic product code (EPC) – Efforts by ISO and ANSI Privacy – Implications of staying active beyond checkout – Kill switches Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 11. Adoption Wal-Mart – Leading the charge by requiring all suppliers to use RFID on pallets by 2006. Gillette – Has ordered 500 million tags for razors. Delta – Testing RFID on passenger luggage this fall. Ford – Testing use of RFID to track parts. DoD – Tracking parts sent to the Persian Gulf. Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
  • 12. On the Horizon Quadrillion units in the global supply chain Estimated Market (VDC Corp.): – $700 million (2003)  $2 billion (2007) Five cent target Privacy issues paramount Information Systems Research Center September 25, 2003 RFID Technology Briefing
