Summary of Today’s RFID
Technologies

Technology

Advantages

Disadvantages

Very short range
passive

Very low
-
cost tag

Global frequency

Requires significant process
changes

Limited multi
-
tag capability

Short range passive

Low
-
cost tag

Sufficient range for dock doors
and similar portals

No global frequency

Many readers/antennas
required for coverage

Slow multi
-
tag collection

Active beacon

Low
-
cost active

Wide area monitoring

Limited chokepoint/portal
capability

No means of disabling beacon
(air cargo)

Two
-
way active

Highly reliable communication

Support for advanced
functionality (memory, sensors)

Expensive tag

Limited chokepoint/portal
capability

RTLS

Physical finding / locating

Wide area monitoring

Very expensive infrastructure

Precision does not support
“logical” locating (e.g. specific
parking slot)
