  2. 2. The world of Active RFID: user perspectives, implementation and The Opportunity for Active RFID Active Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) has the potential to Much of the opportunity surrounding fully Active and Semi-Passive greatly improve the world around us. By adding sensors, power, long RFID is the result of the added capability it has over passive RFID, range communication and other exciting technologies to RFID and which is somewhat constrained to dock door, conveyor, or shelf short range communications, there is an opportunity to achieve any applications. Active alternatives bring visibility to the depot, lot, port, number of improvements, such as: and entire world. Additionally, the increasing ability for active tags to sense and report their environments leads to an enormous range of • More accurate tracking of items through the supply chain new and novel implementations.
