  • Emerging Technology - RFID & Human Tracking

    1. 1. Presented by:<br />Laura Flowerree<br />Christopher Serio<br />Velvet Voelz<br />Suzanne Yonkers<br />RFID (Radio Frequency Identification)and Human Tracking<br />
    2. 2. What is RFID?<br />RFID is a group of technologies that uses radio waves to transmit information.<br />RFID was first created under the guidance of Scottish physicist Sir Robert Alexander Watson-Watt during WWII to help the British identify friendly aircrafts. <br />In 2004 the FDA approved VeriChip’s implantable RFID tag for humans.<br />
    3. 3. How Does RFID Work?<br />A RFID system is always made up of two components. <br />A transponder: which is located on the object or person to be identified.<br />A reader: which reads the information on the transponder. <br />After getting the information from the transponder, the reader sends the information to a host, or software system, to be stored and read. <br />
    4. 4. Basic RFID System<br />
    5. 5. Current Uses<br />Patient Identification<br />Infant Protection<br />Wander Prevention<br />
    6. 6. Current Uses – Cont.<br />Corporate Security<br />Immigration<br />VIP Status<br />Surgery and Healing<br />Prisoner Tracking<br />
    7. 7. Ethical Issues and Limitations: Privacy & Security<br />Valuable information: contact information, SSN, medical history and records.<br />No assurance that the information contained in the chip can be properly protected.<br />Encryption and cloning issues<br />“Big Brother” fears<br />Company mandate for employees<br />
    8. 8. Ethical Issues: Health Implications<br />Do the benefits outweigh the costs?<br />Security vs. Privacy<br />Infants, senior care centers, unconscious patients<br />Health concerns<br />Side effects: adverse tissue reaction, transponder migration, electrical hazards, MRI incompatibility<br />Tumors<br />
    9. 9. The Future of RFID<br />RFID reached its peak in last six-months of 2004.<br />Pessimism about current oversupply of application software.<br />Steady growth anticipated over next couple years.<br />Each generations technology improves and infrastructure continues to grow.<br />Questions remain about what the next steps are that will move the technology into its next phase.<br />
    10. 10. Future of RFID Implants in Humans<br />Original design was the size<br /> of a pacemaker.<br />New design is the size of a <br /> large piece of rice.<br />Next innovations <br />GPS tracking and uses in the medical industry<br />Obstacles<br />Size can’t maintain a power supply.<br />GPS-impaired environments<br />
