RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is used in all areas of automatic data capture allowing contactless identification of objects using RF. With applications ranging from secure internet payment systems to industrial automation and access control, RFID technology solutions are receiving much attention in the research and development departments of large corporations. RFID is a major growth are in auto ID, allowing emergency vehicles to safely trip traffic signals, and providing the technology behind contactless smart cards, "autopiloting" cars, and production automation. This 2003 edition provides a standard reference for people working with RFID technology. Expanded sections explain exactly how RFID systems work, and provide information on the development of new tags such as the smart label. includes details of RFID applications, such as the smartlabel, e-commerce and the electronic purse, document tracking and e-ticketing. This text is of interest to practitioners in auto ID and IT designing RFID products and end-users of RFID technology, computer and electronics engineers in security system development and microchip designers, automation, industrial and transport engineers and materials handling specialists. Also a valuable resource for graduate level students in electronics and industrial engineering design. Developments in RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) are yielding larger memory capacities, wider reading ranges and quicker processing, making it one of fastest growing sectors of the radio technology industry. RFID has become indispensable in a wide range of automated data capture and identification applications, from ticketing and access control to industrial automation.
