Missing Link to iOT Computing: Rain RFID

Download to read offline

After decades of use, RFID is going mainstream and expanding beyond the realm of tightly controlled applications and environments into the internet of things. Mainstream adoption of RFID technology began with broad industry standards, and has now progressed to the emergence of individual application standards. Of all the emerging applications for RFID, the Internet of Things is the most interesting. RAIN RFID is the automatic identification solution for IoT. It is perfectly suited for artificial intelligence input.

Missing Link to iOT Computing: Rain RFID

  1. 1. The Missing Link to iOT Computing: RAIN RFID Michael Hrabina Executive Vice President FEIG Electronics, Inc. www.feig-electronics.com
  2. 2. “Take a lot of unrelated and minimally related things such as passive RFID, Zigbee, wireless sensor networks and hobbyist micro-controllers and give them a grand new name such as the Internet of Things. Instantly you can claim it is a substantial market and set to be much bigger in the future if only because you will shovel other things into the definition. Sell it all as ”The Next Big Thing”. You can unload a lot of reports and consultancy on the back of that.” Dr. Peter Harrop, Chairman IDTechEx
  3. 3. Nailing the definition of The Internet of Things “The Internet of Things uses smart objects with their own IP addresses, operating and even collaborating without human involvement” Dr. Peter Harrop, Chairman IDTechEx
  4. 4. IoT depends on wide variety of technologies
  5. 5. Five Generations of computers Era Technology Programming 1940-1956 Vacuum tube Machine code 1956- 1963 Transistors Assembly Language 1964-1971 Integrated Circuits Proprietary Operating Systems 1971-Present Microprocessors Standard Operating Systems Beyond Massively Parallel Processing Quantum Computation The next generation is Artificial Intelligence
  6. 6. Progression of computer users Users Entity Scientists Governments Engineers University / Large Corporations Skilled workers Business Mass Population Home Users Things Everywhere Internet of Things is part of the fifth generation
  7. 7. AI requires many inputs • Voice recognition • Pattern recognition • Environmental sensors • Automatic Identification RAIN RFID is the ID for IoT
  8. 8. RAIN RFID perfectly suited AI input • Extremely fast • Non-line of sight data capture • Simultaneous capture of large numbers of transponders • Excellent read range • Small size, variety of form factors • Combined environmental sensors
  9. 9. RAIN RFID closes the gap to the next Generation of computing

Editor's Notes

  • These are remarkable times for the RFID industry because for the very first time since the decades of its use, RFID is going mainstream. Every application prior to this point has been a closed system. The technology was used quite well in tightly controlled applications and environments. Never in open, uncontrolled use cases
    Mainstream adoption begins with technology standards and these have been established less than a decade ago in UHF RFID. Application standards could not be established before technology standards. And we are at the point where application standards are being adopted. The first of which is in the payment markets where Eurocaro, MasterCard and Visa other credit cards will begin to use a contactless RFID chip. That EMVco standard establishes the format, transfer and security of the data carrier. In this case, an RFID transponder. This will be the first open use of RFID technology where any card can be used at any terminal across any payment system. We are seeing other application standards emerge that act as a catalyst for widespread use. The most interesting of these is the Internet of Things.

    My presentation this afternoon will explain RAIN RFID’s role in the Internet of Things.
  • I want to fist define the Internet of Things by what it is not.
    The Internet of Things is not a technology. Although it uses technology.
    The Internet of Things is not an application. Although there will be many application that use it.
    The Internet of Things is not a standard. Although it depends on standards.
    So what exactly is IoT?
    It is an amalgamation
  • Not too positive is it.
    The truth be told, many in the field of market research would be uncomfortable expressing this as Dr. Harrop has done. Yet, in doing so he nails a very precise point. The Internet of Things requires a variety of technologies to bring it about. IoT does not stand on a single technology, but the useful integration of many things. It is an amalgamation.
  • If I may continue with another quote from Dr. Harrop… He nails the succinct definition of IoT here. Smart object, with IP addresses operating without human intervention.
  • Bill Gates says “We’re changing the world with technology” In my opinion, it’s how technology is used that brings about the change.
    Technology creates the opportunity for change.
    RAIN RFID is a technology. How will it be used in IoT?
    To answer that let’s take a step back to put perspective on the subject.
  • To date there have been four generations of computers
