Radio Frequency Identification or RFID refers to a technology that incorporates electromagnetic fields in the RF portion of the electromagnetic spectrum to recognize an object, device, animal or person. An RFID reader is a device, used to interrogate an RFID tag. The reader’s antenna emits radio waves to communicate with radio tags that store definite information about an item or object. The information provides identification for an original storage location, item, proof of ownership and history. RFID Reader is superior to barcode asset tracking software as it read the data outside the line-of-sight. The technology used in RFID Reader is Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) that identifies the object, collects the data, and directly inputs the data into the computer system automatically. It may need or may not need human interference.
RFID Reader is used in an extensive range of applications including toll booth passes, passports, smart cards, airplane luggage, merchandise tags, telephone & computer networks, home appliances, monitoring heart patients and operation of spacecraft & satellites. The key advantages are included can capture data from the RFID tag with no line of sight, read multiple RFID tags, reduces human effort & error by automatically collecting the data, helps the employee to improve productivity increases the visibility of assets and mitigates theft, risk, and loss.
