RFID tags are embedded in a growing number of items people use regularly. They provide conveniences to consumers or help businesses manage inventory or security. In recent years, RFID has also been utilized for marketing, such as a recent Facebook Coca-Cola Event.
There are many ways that RFID is used in your every day life. Schools and public libraries incorporate tags in student IDs, library cards and books. Workplaces routinely distribute tagged employee IDs and key cards. Travel involves multiple RFID tags, including key fobs, toll passes, e-passports and ever airport baggage tags. Retail goods are often tagged for inventory monitoring, some stores even provide mobile readers to customers which display infortmation on the products, such as sales and discounts.
When you think of RFID implementations you don’t often think of a one-store solution.
There is one major challenge for the DoD: Embracing change.
