6. History of RFID
1990-recent Emergence standards. RFID widely deployed. Becomes a part of
1980-1990 Commercial application of RFID enter mainstream
1970-1980 Explosion of RFID development. Tests of RFID accelerate. Very early
adopter implementation of RFID
1960-1970 Development of theory of RFID. Start of application field trials
1950-1960 Early exploration of RFID technplogy, laboratory experiment
1940-1950 Radar used in World War II
7. Difference with barcode
• Less Expensive
• Need direct line of sight of
barcode to be able to read
• No read/write capabilites, only
contain the product and
• Labor intensive, must be
• More easily damaged
• More expensive
• Can read RFID tags from a
• Do not need to be positioned
in a line of sight with the
• Carry larger data capabilites
• Minimal human participation
• Reusable and protected by
17. Future uses
RFID used in drone. It can be used to track all of the movement of the products to
be delivered. Is the product already taken? Where is the drone heading now? Etc
RFID in 3D printing. Scientists are now incorporating RFID chip into object to print
unique tag called InfraStruct inside an object as it is being printed. Example: T-
money mounted in a ring.
18. Future uses
RFID in smart factory. It is used to enable mass manufacturing. RFID tag is mounted
with engine. Then the tag communicates with the production line system to drive its
processes. It ensures manufacturing runs without interruption.

22. Advice to firms
Focus on real business need
Tight security standards Research and maintenance
Firm and government
23. Findings & Conclusion
RFID has taken a huge role in our daily life activities.
RFID has helped many businesses’ unconventional way of identifying and tracking
goods into much more efficient way of business process by providing better
visibility, faster process and accuracy.
Although RFID has some issues regarding privacy, security and industrial, scientists
continuosly conduct research to fix issues.
In the future, almost all technology advancement will include RFID in the activities
because it needs trigger and effect to function properly and RFID is right way.
Firms itself has to protect their own consumers privacy and focus on their real
Government also take a large role to develop standards and policies regarding the
advancement of technology

Main criterion for evaluation will be an assessment of the thoughtfulness of your own comments.
Imagine you own a retail store and you have lots of products to be stored in your inventory. How will you manage your warehouses? Will you do it in traditional way by checking all products one by one? Is it the best way to control your inventory or otherwise it might be expired before you sell it? Of course not! It is not a best way to manage your inventory! In these technological era, everything is now sophisticated. Forget the traditional way if you really want to have an effective and efficient management.
RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. It is small electronic devices that consist of a small chip and an antenna. The chip typically is capable of carrying 2,000 bytes of data or less. RFID is the advanced technology which helps a lot of industries in the world, it is first used in aircraft industry to track the military aircraft to recognize which one is friend or rival. Nowadays it is used in many industries such as transportation, banking, security, medical and so on.
Tag or Transponder—An RFID tag is a tiny radio device that is also referred to as a transponder, smart tag, smart label, or radio barcode. The tag comprises a simple silicon microchip (typically less than half a millimeter in size) attached to a small flat aerial and mounted on a substrate. The whole device can then be encapsulated in different materials (such as plastic) dependent upon its intended usage. The finished tag can be attached to an object, typically an item, box, or pallet, and read remotely to ascertain its identity, position, or state. For an active tag there will also be a battery.
Reader or Interrogator—The reader—sometimes called an interrogator or scanner—sends and receives RF data to and from the tag via antennas. A reader may have multiple antennas that are responsible for sending and receiving radio waves.
Host Computer—The data acquired by the readers is then passed to a host computer, which may run specialist RFID software or middleware to filter the data and route it to the correct application, to be processed into useful information.
Current uses of RFID in supply chain:
Sourcing – relate with suppliers
Operation – relate with daily activities of company to fulfill the demand
Logistics – relate with how the product is delivered to customer
Integration – relate with all activities within the organization
