Radio Frequency Identification:

RFID is an Automatic Data Capture technology that uses

frequency waves to read a movable item to identify,

categorize & track...

RFID is fast, reliable, and does not require physical line of

sight or contact between reader/scanner and the RFID

tagged item.

What is RFID?

What is RFID?

RFID comes in several technologies. Each technology

has its own application however in some applications

there can be a crossover of these technologies.

Examples of Uses of the Technologies

1. Companion Animals, Livestock and Access

Control (low frequency)

2. Used in Security, Access & Payment Systems

(High Frequency)

3. Used in Supply Chain, Asset Management,

Mining, Retail and Livestock (Ultra High Frequency)

4. Used in Manufacturing & Long Range

Asset Management (100
200M) (Active



What is RFID?

The Tags

Tags can be attached to

almost anything:

pallets or cases of product


company assets or personnel

items such as apparel,

luggage, laundry

people, livestock, or pets

high value electronics such

as computers, TVs, camcorders

What is RFID?

The Tags

Tags can be read
only or read

Tag memory can be factory or field programmed
and optionally permanently locked (security)

Data written to the tag

left unlocked, can be

modified over more than

100,000 times, allowing the

he tag to be reused or


RFID System Selection Basics

How do we select a Technology

How far do we want to read?

How fast do we need the data?

How much Data do we need to store on
the RFID tag?

Do we need to have specific data on the
tag (write to the tag)

How many?

Attached to and surrounded by what

RFID in Animal Traceability

RFID in Animal Traceability

RFID Allocation for Animal Track and Trace

in Australia is limited read range RFID (1 metre)

The Meat and Livestock Aust. (MLA) and the

National Live Stock Identification System (NLIS)

have adopted the short read range for Cattle.

The Frequency for sheep identification going forward

is still under discussion.

Currently BCDS is trialling long range (6metre) technology

on Sheep Stations in NSW and at the moment the

technology is proving successful

RFID in Animal Traceability

Traceability from Station to Retail

Station & Animal ID is read & recorded

in a National EPC IS Database it includes the animal


Integrate Bar Code & RFID Tag into a smart label,

& create smart labels as required

read & store all transport loading and unloading

transactions & locations.

Change to bar code ID as the carcass is broken


All ID numbers, bar code & RFID, for each animal

are consolidated in the EPC IS database. As shown

in the diagram.

RFID in Animal Traceability

EPC is a Database

Web Based

Complete animal history

Accessible to all subscribers world wide

Secure individual access

Available to Government Agencies

Upload/Download facilities for all producers,

abattoirs & retailers

Complete traceability of each carcass

Is this ready to implement? No

only implementation so far is a minor application

in Hong Kong.

RFID in Animal Traceability

What can BCDS do to Help?

BCDS have extensive experience in WEB


Develop the WEB application

Design the EPC IS in conjunction with

all stakeholders

Make it available to world wide subscribers

Provide the infrastructure for complete traceability

EPC IS Database

Manufacturing and Warehouse Applications

Bill of Loading

Material Tracking

Limited number items at forklift speeds

8’ X 10’ doorways

Electronic receipt & dispatch

Wrong destination alert

Electronic marking

Pallet/container item tracking

Manufacturing and Warehouse Applications

Hand Held Application Categories



Fixed Station

Conveyor / Assembly Line

Read speed up to 2.3 M/sec

60+ items per container

Inexpensive tunnels

Longer tunnel more reads more items

Electronic receipt


Electronic marking

RFID in Defence Applications

Inventory and Asset management using long
range RFID tags (6 metres)

Securing and sealing slow moving inventory

High accuracy in location and quantity of


Automatic confirmation for picking and
deployment of inventory, using fixed and mobile

Inventory user identification

Allocate inventory to individual users



Inventory tracking system is designed and
implemented by BCDS into the Australian
Defence Logistics Branch

The difference to other systems? Utilises a
unique method of layered and nested locations

The database is available across the Australian
defence network

Interfaces to the Australian Defence ERP

Document Tracking

Traceability of Highly Sensitive Documents

Each document is tagged with a high visibility
RFID tag, and the document ID stored in a
database. Personnel are also issued with RFID
identification cards for issue and tracking

The readers for the application are supplied in
different forms


Desk readers for the document repository
(labelling & issuing documents)

Portal readers for the document repository &
specified entries and exits.

Document Tracking


Document tray readers for individual desks




Accurate knowledge of who has and where the
document is in real time

Alarms if the document is copied or is not visible
to the system for a set period of time

Alarms if the document is in a wrong location

Alarm if the document is removed from an office
or building

Ability to read stacked documents by any reader

Automatic secure document return

So Where is RFID in Smart Technology?

Although RFID has been slow to take off due to
manufacturing problems and the subsequent
costs, those problems have been overcome to a
degree and have given the technology the
chance to be implemented.

RFID in the Smart World is providing automatic
identification across the board, from a cashless
society, tracking of people, animals to assets
and inventory.

Applications are now available for IOS, Android
and Windows smart phones, Tablets and
Industrial Computers making it a mobile world

Smart Applications

Retail Automation

in apparel, electrical goods
and white goods, with auto inventory control for
quantity and location, and auto Point of Sale.
Retail applications today do not need dedicated
mobile computers, smart phones and tablets are
being implemented reducing cost and
increasing user comfort.

Asset management internal and external with
tracking and security. For high security areas
the integration of CCTV provides asset ID, user
ID, location ID with immediate access to video
for assurance.

Smart Applications

Defence, Law Enforcement and Fire Fighting

asset management for arms ammunition,
ordinance and accessories communications,
batons, breathing equipment

. Real time
automatic asset management for user issue and
