RFID technology– automate systems using in their work the method of automatic identification of objects by means of radio waves (Radio Frequency Identification, RFID). In its minimal form, any RFID technology as a system assumes the presence of several mandatory components. On one side of the system there is an RFID tag, which is a sticker with a microchip and an antenna inside, on the other side, an RFID reader, which is a secure computer with an antenna. When the system is activate, the reader sends a radio signal to the tag, in response to which the tag transmits its identification number to the reader, as a result of which accurate and fast radio identification of the object to which the tag is attach is provide.

Controlling the movement of objects

One of the advantages of RFID technology is the large (up to three meters) reading range of the tag, which is attach to the object. If you install stationary RFID readers in the specified places, these readers will record all the facts of the passage of objects through them. This simple mechanism can be use to implement a variety of RFID systems.


Organization of modules for bringing in / out of enterprise objects

RFID readers can be install at all points of entry / exit of the enterprise, forming a kind of “RFID gate”. These gates will record each unit passing through them, indicating all the necessary information on the object, including the time of passage of the object. If all the facts of the insertion / removal of objects will be enter and store in the enterprise database, it becomes possible to trace the history of the movement of objects, quickly detecting the loss.

This RFID technology can be use in a wide variety of fields. At the warehouse – to keep track of goods arriving at the warehouse / ship from the warehouse, at enterprises with their own vehicle fleet – to record all the facts of entry / exit of objects from the parking lot, as well as to receive up-to-date information about when the car left the vehicle fleet, when it came back and return whether at all. It is also possible to use the system such as monitoring the movement of human resources in the enterprise and checking the completeness and correctness of the equipment of working groups advancing to the object.

Control of the movement of objects along a single specify route

RFID technology allows you to check the correct movement of objects along a certain uniform route. For this, RFID readers can be install along the entire route, which make it possible to track whether or not a certain object pass the checkpoint and whether it pass at all. This allows the operator to receive up-to-date information on the movement of objects and, by monitoring the correctness of the movement, to promptly respond to technological failures or theft. This RFID solution in Pakistan technology can be use for factories and mines to control the movement of trucks with cargo. Another example of an effective application is the control over the movement of wagons in the framework of rail freight traffic.

Monitoring “risk zones”

RFID readers can be install in places where there is a high risk of theft of objects – in this case, the RFID reader “detects” an object mark with an RFID tag, signaling to the dispatcher that it is in a “risk zone”. This solution can be effectively apply to enterprises for the extraction of precious materials, where the percentage of thefts is high, usually occurring on the siding of trolleys.

Object search

RFID technology can be effectively use to find the desire objects, which is ensure by the possibility of remote reading of objects. On the mobile RFID terminal, the object that needs to be found is select, after which the reading is carry out until the desire object enters the reading zone and is identify. This solution can be use to search for objects ship from the warehouse or within the framework of the logistics system (MTO) of fix assets of an enterprise in order to search for OS for which a request for repair has been receive from the user.


Operational accounting of objects

An equally important difference of RFID technology is the ability to receive data from a large number of objects at once, which is support by the presence of anti-collision mechanisms that allow not only to receive information from several tags at once, but also to differentiate and process the incoming data. This feature is extremely effective for RFID inventory of objects, in particular, fix assets of an enterprise, when receiving data from several tags allows you to read tags immediately from a large number of enterprise OS without interrupting the workflow.

Controlling the authenticity of objects

Another difference between RFID technology and other object identification technologies, in particular the more traditional barcode, is that there is no need for a direct line of sight of the tag to read it. This makes possible the hidden placement of the label inside the object and opens up new perspectives for the verification of the authenticity of objects. The hidden placement of the tag can be use to control the authenticity of industrial products, which is also facilitat by the microprocessor chip of the tag, which is almost impossible to counterfeit.
