What is RFID?

An old technology that is finally getting deployed widely thanks to IoT.

By

Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object.

A tag can be read from up to several feet away and does not need to be within direct line-of-sight of the reader to be tracked.

Smart retail and logistics are two areas expected to largely benefit from RFID technology as this will allow manufacturers and/or retailers to control stock more effectively.
