A new breed of drones could save retailers billions of dollars using radio frequency ID tags.
Microscopic radio-frequency devices could be essential in analyzing and fighting diseases.
International regulations addressing radiofrequency identification (RFID) devices may seem as endless and evolving as applications for the technology itself.
A ubiquitous office and school supply has just gotten a technical upgrade. A team of researchers from the University of Washington, Disney Research and Carnegie Mellon University have given paper sensing abilities so that just like modern devices, items made from paper can respond to swipes and taps and connect to the digital world.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is an accurate and convenient method for asset management and inventory tracking, but it comes at a cost. Some researchers have focused on redesigning RFID tags to make them smaller and therefore cheaper, but now two electrical engineers working for Disney Research have developed RFID technology that eliminates the tags altogether. The new system uses the electromagnetic signals that gadgets already emit, which makes this method less expe
Engineers at NC State developed a new technique that makes RFID tags less expensive and 25 percent smaller than conventional versions. They shrunk the tags by eliminating the bulky hardware that is typically required in passive RFID systems for AC/DC conversion.
A Swedish man can make payments by simply waving his hand. Patric Lanhed, a software developer at DigitasLBi, made this futuristic payment possible by implanting a radio frequency identification (RFID) chip in his hand. This week he successfully transferred money into his Bitcoin wallet by holding his hand up to a sensor, which read the RFID chip under his skin.
A team of engineers developed a new search algorithm that allows robots to use RFID-technology to improve the robot’s ability to find objects labeled with self-adhesive RFID tags. The algorithm was tested usin... Read More...
Intentional RF transmitting devices seem to be everywhere. Smart phones, tablets and similar devices provide the ability for users to be connected to the internet any time, from any location using nearly any device. Other than the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and the inner canyon of the Grand Canyon, it may be difficult to find any location without WiFi available.
