Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
As government and businesses explore applications implementing active RFID, the market for this technology has been poised for enormous growth. The RFID tags and technology will continue to evolve to meet new demands for human and object identification, location during transit, tracking and tracing. In addition, the need to locate and track multiple RFID-tagged items (stationary or moving) that are closely spaced is resulting in localization and tracking techniques with higher accuracy yet low implementation complexity. Popular RFID applications include asset tracking, wireless temperature monitoring, access control and personnel tracking in industries from healthcare and education to government and aerospace.
