Radio Frequency Identification:


RFID is an Automatic Data Capture technology that uses

radio
-
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
-

Battery

Operated)


What is RFID?
--

The Tags

Tags can be attached to

almost anything:



pallets or cases of product



vehicles



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
-
write


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

t
he tag to be reused or

updated

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
?

What does BCDS Excel in?


Business & System Analysis


RFID Consultation & Design


System design


Development of Specifications


Software Development


Implementation including ongoing
Service, Support & Maintenance


ISO9001 Certified

Advantages

of RFID Systems


Ability to read data without visual access


Ability to read data from moving objects


Ability to read data at distance, from 3cm to
100 metres


Ability to secure the tag data


Ability to update data in the tag (write)


Ability to have automated read of tags.


Ability to have the tag form to suit the
application


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


characteristics


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


down.


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


development


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
Cont


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




Wireless


Batch


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


Sorting


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

Inventory


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


Inventory user identification


Allocate inventory to individual users
automatically




RFID in
Defence

Applications


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

o

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

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

Document Tracking

o

Document tray readers for individual desks




Document

Tracking

Advantages



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
etc

. Real time
automatic asset management for user issue and
deployment.
