Device

consisting of
an electronic circuit
and integrated
antenna


RF used to transfer
data between the tag
and the antenna


Receives and
transmits the
electromagnetic
waves


Wireless data
transfer via air

interface


Communicates
with the tag via
antenna


Provides power
supply to passive
tags


Translates radio
waves into digital
information


Reads/writes data
from/to the tags through
the reader


Filters, stores and
evaluates obtained data
against business
process


Links the transceiver to
applications, e.g. ERP

RFID


Quali criticità

Integration with business applications

Dealing with data flood

Complexity

Lack of Business Case for Manufacturers

High costs of tags

Hard costs versus soft benefits

Limited scale of initial deployments

Where can manufacturers derive value?

Lack of Standards and Technology Challenges

EPC Class 1 Gen 2 products only emerging

Limitations of RFID

QC, read reliability
