e-Track, RFID - Radio Frequency IDentification

Identification and tracking of objects, storage and transmission of information between objects

Automatic Identification and Data Capture, transmission and storage of data: thanks to RFID technology and tracking of products, with the use of tags and radio-frequencies, companies can improve Business Process Visibility with significant improvement in existing processes.

Among the possible responses to the needs of companies in identification and tracking, RFID technology has proven to be functional to the requirements of process management and to be a useful organizational tool for improving the identification of objects allowing customized adaptations, according to organizational specifications.

The RFID technology offers the possibility to identify objects, data storage with tags and to create a network of objects. The widespread adoption of this technology in a variety of applications, expected in the coming decades, as well as the likely interconnection of data objects into one large global network – the Internet of Things – opens new unexpected scenarios and a market space with enormous potential for companies that will put more attention to technological innovation process.
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a very flexible technology to track and identify objects.
Thanks to electronic tags of equipment called reader (tag or transponder), responding to questions via radio, objects can store and transmit data and information.
To summarize, an RFID tag is able to receive and transmit via radio frequency, information (data) contained in a microchip to an RFID transceiver. There is obviously a physical medium that holds the chip and the antenna.
RFID identification technology based on the storage of data in electronic devices which respond communicating information at a distance through radiofrequency readers, offers many advantages over bar codes and magnetic stripes:

  • Possibility to add information on the chip;
  • Identification and verification in a few hundredths of a second;
  • Tag (or transponder) may not be visible;
  • Tag doesn’t necessarily need to be in contact to be able to be read, thanks to radio technologies;
  • The information and communication can be encrypted (privacy);
  • It provides traceability of objects in physical space.
The standard NFC (Near Field Communication) allows the exchange of information among different readers / writers. Almost all smartphones are equipped with this technology and there are many scenarios of possible use, including electronic mobile payment systems and with credit / debit cards.

Target

There are many companies that can benefit from using RFID technology.
The tags can be applied to finished products for traceability in the phases of the electronic inventory management of the warehouse, for tracking during transport phases, in anti-shoplifting systems in sale points or in areas open to the public, it can be used also for tracking during the production cycle of raw materials and semi-finished products. Tags can be applied to containers, pallets and means of transportation or enterprise asset. The standard NFC offers the possibility to exchange data quickly even with smartphones. The RFID technology, including the creation of networks of objects, has very interesting business applications.
