Radio Frequency Identification

RFID is the acronym for Radio Frequency Identification.

What is Radio Frequency Identification?

A technology that uses radio waves to identify and track objects, animals, or people.

RFID works through a combination of a tag or label that contains a unique identifier and a reader that sends and receives radio waves. The tag or label contains a small chip and an antenna that can communicate with the reader when it is within range.

When an RFID tag is brought close to an RFID reader, the reader emits a radio wave signal that powers the tag’s chip. The tag then sends back a signal containing its unique identifier, which the reader can decode and use to identify the object, animal, or person to which the tag is attached.

RFID technology is used in many applications, such as inventory management, supply chain management, access control, and animal tracking. It offers many benefits, such as increased efficiency, improved accuracy, and reduced costs, compared to traditional methods of identification and tracking. RFID technology is also becoming more prevalent and is expected to be used in more applications in the future.
