Radio Frequency Identification (RF-ID) is a fairly well established technology that, until recently, has not seen widespread penetration into product identification and tracking markets. However, the past couple years have seen significant growth in RF-ID applications, as it has become preferable to systems based on barcodes and serial numbers. This Web site is designed to give people a better understanding of what RF-ID is and where it can be used. An excellent overview of the technology is presented, showing the general architecture and communication between the tag and transponder. Possibly the most useful part of the site is the Application Examples section, which discusses RF-ID uses in airline baggage systems, automobile security, and even "beer keg tracking." A few short articles are also given, but they are a bit dated.
