Cover Story: The world‘s first - RFID detects leaks in cars!

Mercedes-Benz in Bremen is testing a new RFID tag for the detection of moisture during leak tightness testing

Topic: RFID and Industrie 4.0

Even if terms such as ‘Internet of Things’, ‘Industrial Internet’, ‘Smart Factory’ and ‘Cyber-physical Systems’ are sometimes used interchangeably – experts agree on the fact that RFID technology will be the backbone of industrial process development, or even that it already is. Like no other AIDC technology, RFID carries data from various processes to higher level control IT systems, which are necessary to establish smart, sustainable and efficient processes in industrial production.

Report: RFID and Automotive

Transparency and innovation are now more necessary than ever to bring sustainable concepts to the market. RFID technology is the method of choice to achieve transparency in manufacturing. The technology is no longer seen only as a means to an end, but as a next step, becoming part of the design – at least that is how it is now being considered.

Cover Story: A manufacturer of construction site containers detects more than 150,000 containers using a flat and yet robust transponder by HID Global

A trend towards ever smaller RFID transponders can be seen accross different applications. Why then does HID Global bring a transponder to the market that is rather a contrast to that trend with a width of more than ten centimeters? „Special requirements ask for special solutions“, is how Guido Kuhrmann, Sales Director IDT at HID Global, sums up the answer in a simple formula in dialogue with „RFID im Blick“.

Report: Container Management and RFID

Not every container is the same and not every container is used for freight transport. Accommodation containers are currently in big demand throughout Europe. Another container option is refrigerated containers, which will support the appropriate ripening process of fruit during transport and storage. The common element with containers is that they appear en masse and they need to be clearly identified and tracked to achieve a thorough itinerary of every process. Is this an ideal environment for the use of RFID technology?

Contactless is the Future of Fare Management, Vending, and Payment

The market for contactless applications is growing: in the coming years, almost all smart cards will have a contactless chip. This change will take place very quickly, even for credit cards. Payment and ticketing with NFC has been around for 15 years. But it is only now that the trend is picking up speed, once Apple, the last player in the market, implemented NFC. The market will now develop slowly, but steadily.

The Latest from the Transponder Market: Current Products, Expert Interviews and Applications

No Network without Transponders - RFID is ready for RFID Mass Applications

RFID-sensors, new security features, higher memory capacity of Chip-ICs, even more stable bonding through Direct Bonding and SMT production as well as robust housing expand RFID’s usage spectrum – now also on the temperature scale of -196 to +250 degree Celsius – into a new dimension. Not least, progresses in Polymer technology further the aim of RFID in mass applications. Hence, for example, physicians of the TU Munich recently succeeded to watch the creation of polymeric electrodes during a printing process live. With the gained knowledge, they improved the electronic characteristics of the printed films.

Report: RFID Readers 2015

What is the status of RFID-reader technology in the year 2015? The answer is that the technology will be further refined, optimized regarding functional capacity, and combined with other technologies. In the field of passive UHF-technology, adaptive antenna technologies with self-optimizing options and selective reading integrate additional intelligence into the devices, create extended analysis functions, and lower the integration effort. The combination of RFID-technologies with sensors, overheads as a “new” class of reading systems, as well as active RFID-system solutions with alarm and localization functions, expand the application range.

The Future of Factory Automation

How is Manufacturing’s Future Changed by Industry 4.0? And Where Does RFID Fit in This Future?

At the Hanover Trade Fair 2015, looking to the future was one of the dominant topics: the future of the industry and the future of manufacturing. All voices present at the trade fair – exhibitors, politicians, and trade associations – agreed that this future is already beginning now. But how many concrete and graspable realizations driven by the visions of Industry 4.0 already exist today? What technologies and innovations are needed to establish a promising future for industrial manufacturing?

Report: RFID System Integration

The technology is ready – is your company?

Does RFID-system integration work according to the books? Yes and no, is the answer of established system houses and solution providers this year. The numerous advantages and added-value of RFID-technology for the optimization of processes in almost all fields of a company becomes realizable when based on intelligent system solutions. The large number of possible applications, whose environment may vary considerably from company to company, is also the greatest challenge for the integrator. Therefore, even in 2015, simulations and tests of RFID-applications in a real-world environment remain an essential part of the system integration. However, the technology is mature and the solution provider’s know-how is extensive and complex. Those companies who bring an expert on board save costs, safeguard their investments, and are prepared for future challenges.
