What is RFID?

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is technology that is found in travels, businesses, medicine practices, the government and so much more. This video contains highlights from the IEEE’s first technical conference on RFID in 2007, and covers some of the conversations from the conference that include new technologies, technical problems, standards, and what to hope comes next in the field. Attendees were able to learn what is going on around the world with RFID and connect on progressing together for RFID technology. Interviews with conference coordinators and attendees talk about their experiences and ideas regarding RFID and explore current applications at the RFID exhibit.

Near-field wireless technology is an emerging area of great importance in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID). Specific applications include low frequency (LF) and high frequency (HF) RFID, Near-Field Communications (NFC), Near-Field Electromagnetic Ranging (NFER), and wireless power transfer. This talk discusses the origins of near-field wireless, surveys applications, presents near-field links laws, and reviews the properties and performance of electrically-small antennas. This March 31, 2014 presentation to the Huntsville, AL section of the IEEE previews the full three hour workshop presented April 8, 2014 at the 8th Annual IEEE International Conference on RFID held in conjunction with 2014 RFID Journal Live.
