The technology at the heart of the IoT
Keeping track of assets is a major challenge in any industry – whether that is items of equipment, components or raw materials or the finished goods. While a computer can provide a list of assets and say where they ought to be, it cannot know their whereabouts in the real world.
Radio frequency identification (RFID) offers a way to electronically identify and track items, which makes it easy to collect information about them, how they are used and whether they need attention. For this reason RFID technology at the heart of the Internet of Things (IoT).
As data from RFID tags can be collected automatically and from a distance away, it makes it easy to automate processes that depend on manual data entry, reduce costs and develop new ways of working.
In these pages you can find out more about RFID and its applications, and how CoreRFID can help you harness the technology to benefit your own business.
