INTRODUCTION TO RFID
What is RFID? How does it work?
The Internet of Things
Radio frequency identification (RFID) and the similar technology “near field communication” (NFC) present businesses with exciting opportunities to create systems which can link automatically to the world around them: the internet of things.
What’s Driving RFID?
The introduction of radio frequency devices to tag and identify items is growing because it provides a low cost, effective way to connect IT systems with the assets, materials, staff and locations of businesses.
In recent years, greater standardisation and reduced costs have made RFID an attractive proposition for many businesses, making more applications technically feasible and economic.
RFID and NFC offer ways to electronically identify people, places and things. Computer systems can know about things in the real world, collecting information about where they are, how they are used and whether they need attention. These technologies reduce the costs of data collection and improve its accuracy. They can help to automate processes that today depend on pencil and paper or manual data entry.
How CoreRFID Can Help
Sometimes RFID can seem complicated with a wide range of choices devices with many different capabilities. CoreRFID are experts in selecting and supplying RFID systems and can build the applications that make use of the technology. We can help any business that is planning the introduction of RFID.
NFC and RFID are just the latest technology in the field of asset management. Barcodes perform some of the functions made possible by RFID. So how different is RFID to Barcodes in terms of function? Watch the animated video above to understand more about the differences between the two technologies.
