RFID, short for Radio Frequency Identification.
A complete RFID system consists of several components. The most important one is the RFID tag that contains information. Special RFID readers have the ability to read the information in these tags and perform certain tasks. The use of RFID technology has become widespread within many areas of industry. RFID provides an ideal technology for tracking assets and identifying them by using a simple low cost antenna attached to the item in question. 

RFID - the applications
RFID systems can be used in a variety of ways. There are many RFID applications which have gained popularity over the past years:
  • Store product identification - RFID technology can be used within shops and stores as a form of alert for goods that have / have not been paid for. 
  • Asset tracking - RFID systems can monitor when RFID tags pass given points and in this way track the assets. 
  • Airline baggage identification - airlines need to monitor where baggage is and route it to the required destination. RFID tags can be attached to the bags to automate baggage routing 
  • Parts identification - Data can be written to an RFID tags defining the identity of a part. This can then be used within a manufacturing, stock holding or other process to identify and locate parts. 
  • Production control - when items are manufactured they pass through many stages. RFID tags can be attached to items. These can be updated each time the item passes through a stage in production. This will enable the manufacturing system to track all items and know what stage they are at, and any other information such as test failures, etc. 
  • Modern RFID locks, often found in business and hotels, help make those organizations more secure. For instance, employees may have to use RFID cards or RFID wristbands to get into their buildings. When employees enter a building, RFID readers can capture that information, verify the person's identity and store it in a database. Many people may find it more convenient to carry small RFID cards than regular keys. 

These represent some of the more standard applications for RFID technology. Many more specialised applications are also in use.
