Ten applications of RFID in life

RFID radio frequency identification technology, also known as radio frequency identification, is a communication technology that can identify specific targets through radio signals and read and write related data without establishing mechanical or optical contact between the identification system and the specific target.

In the era of the Internet of Everything, RFID technology is not far away from us in reality, and it has also brought new challenges and opportunities to various industries. RFID technology allows every item to have its own ID card and is widely promoted. Used in item identification and tracking scenarios. With the development of technology, RFID has actually penetrated into all aspects of our lives. In all walks of life, RFID has become a part of life. Let’s learn about ten common applications of RFID in life.

1. Smart transportation: automatic vehicle identification

By using RFID to identify vehicles, the operating status of the vehicle can be known at any time, and automatic tracking and management of vehicles can be realized. Typical applications of Sensen IoT in the field of vehicle identification include: bus priority system, unattended automatic weighing system, automatic counting and management system of earth and stone moving vehicles, unmanned vehicle route warning system, automatic identification system of hot metal tank numbers, remote automatic distance vehicle identification system, lane vehicle priority system, etc.


2. Intelligent manufacturing: production automation and process control

RFID technology has many applications in production process control due to its strong resistance to harsh environments and non-contact identification. By using RFID technology on automated assembly lines in large factories, material tracking and automatic control and monitoring of the production process are realized, production efficiency is improved, production methods are improved, and costs are reduced. Typical applications of Sensen IoT in the field of intelligent manufacturing include: RFID production reporting system, RFID production tracking and tracing system, AGV unmanned handling site identification system, inspection robot path identification system, concrete precast component quality traceability system, etc.


3. Smart animal husbandry: animal identification management

RFID technology can be used to identify, track and manage animals, identify livestock, monitor animal health and other important information, providing a reliable technical means for modern management of pastures. In large-scale breeding farms, RFID technology can be used to establish feeding files, vaccination files, etc., to achieve the purpose of efficient and automated management of livestock, and at the same time provide guarantee for food safety. Typical applications of Sensen IoT in the field of animal identification include: automatic counting system for cattle and sheep entering and exiting pens, dog electronic identification information management system, pig breeding traceability system, livestock insurance label identification system, animal identification and traceability system, experiment Animal identification system, sow automated precision feeding system, etc.

4. Smart medical treatment

Use RFID technology to realize the interaction between patients and medical staff, medical institutions, and medical equipment, gradually achieve informatization, and make medical services truly intelligent. Typical applications of Tansen IoT in the smart medical field include: medical waste management systems, endoscope cleaning and disinfection traceability systems, etc.


5. Asset management: material inventory and warehouse management

Use RFID technology to manage fixed assets in a label-based manner. By installing RFID electronic tags and installing RFID identification equipment at entrances and exits, the assets can be fully visualized and information updated in real time, and the use and flow of assets can be monitored. Using RFID technology for smart warehouse cargo management can effectively manage information related to the flow of goods in the warehouse, monitor cargo information, understand inventory status in real time, automatically identify and inventory goods, and determine the location of goods. Typical applications of Tansen IoT in the field of asset management include: RFID warehouse management system, RFID fixed asset management system, transparent cleaning intelligent supervision system, garbage collection and transportation intelligent supervision system, electronic label light picking system, RFID book management system, RFID line patrol management system, RFID file management system, etc.

6. Personnel management

The use of RFID technology can effectively identify personnel, perform security management, simplify entry and exit procedures, improve work efficiency, and effectively provide security protection. The system will automatically identify people when they come in and out, and will alarm when someone breaks in illegally. Typical applications of Sensen IoT in the field of personnel management include: mid- and long-distance running timing and lap counting systems, personnel positioning and trajectory management, long-distance personnel automatic identification systems, forklift anti-collision warning systems, etc.

7. Logistics and distribution: automatic sorting of mail and parcels

RFID technology has been successfully applied to the automatic parcel sorting system in the postal field. This system has the characteristics of non-contact and non-line-of-sight data transmission, so the directionality of the parcel can be ignored during parcel delivery. In addition, when multiple targets enter the identification area at the same time, they can be identified simultaneously, which greatly improves the cargo sorting capability and processing speed. Since the electronic tag can record all characteristic data of the package, it is more conducive to improving the accuracy of parcel sorting.


8. Military Management

RFID is an automatic identification system that automatically identifies targets and collects data through non-contact radio frequency signals. It can identify high-speed moving targets and identify multiple targets at the same time without manual intervention. It is fast and convenient to operate and can adapt to various harsh environments. Regardless of whether military materials are in any link of procurement, transportation, warehousing, use, or maintenance, commanders at all levels can grasp their information and status in real time. RFID can collect and exchange data between readers and electronic tags at extremely fast speeds. It has the capabilities of intelligent reading and writing and encrypted communication, a unique password in the world, and strong information confidentiality. This requires accurate and fast information for military management. , safe and controllable, providing a practical technical approach.

9. Retail Management

RFID applications in the retail industry mainly focus on five aspects: supply chain management, inventory management, in-store merchandise management, customer relationship management and security management. Due to the unique identification method and technical characteristics of RFID, it can bring huge benefits to retailers, suppliers and customers. In an efficient way, it enables the supply chain system to more easily and automatically track the dynamics of goods, allowing items to achieve truly automated management. In addition, RFID also provides the retail industry with advanced and convenient data collection methods, convenient customer transactions, efficient operating methods, fast and insightful decision-making methods, and other benefits that barcode technology cannot replace.


10. Anti-counterfeiting traceability

The problem of counterfeiting is a headache all over the world. The application of RFID technology in the field of anti-counterfeiting has its own technical advantages. It has the advantages of low cost and difficulty in counterfeiting. The electronic tag itself has a memory that can store and modify product-related data, which facilitates the identification of authenticity. Using this technology does not require changing the current data management system, and the unique product identification number can be completely compatible with the existing database system.
