Radio Frequency Identification Devices Procurement in the US
This report is intended to help buyers of radio frequency identification (RFID) devices. RFIDs use short-range radio frequencies to track packages and objects within a limited distance from the tracker. RFID systems consist of tags, readers and antennae. Tags store information and are attached to the object being tracked, while readers and antennae send out radio waves to read information stored on the RFID tag. This report focuses on RFID tags, but readers and antennae will also be discussed. This report excludes bar code technology and systems.
