RFID stands for Radio-Frequency IDentification. The acronym refers to a small electronic device that consists of a small chip with a transmitter. The chip typically is capable of carrying 2,000 bytes of data or less. With the use of a wireless radio system, RFID can transfer data from a tag attached to an object for the purpose of automatic identification and tracking. Some tags require no battery and are powered by the radio waves used to read them. The tags contain information which can be read from a few centimeters to several meters away (depending on the reader). Unlike bar codes or QR codes, RFID does not need to be within the line of sight of the reader and it can be embedded in the object (yes some use injectable RFID tags).

Enough of the geek jargon, we have found an explainer video on YouTube that will surely interest you.

Your company or your brand can use RFID for different purpose such as:

  1. Inventory and object tracking of assets in warehouses, outlets, branches
  2. School and company ID time and proximity or access pass
  3. Concert & MusicFest pass
  4. Race Timing Chips
  5. Guest IDs for resorts
