From the shelf directly to the web shop! Having an NFC sticker on a product fills the missing link to the online world, and creates genuine added value through customer interaction

“UHF in the supply chain, NFC in the store – this is not a contradiction – quite the opposite”, says Ralf Kodritsch, NXP Semiconductors. From the NXP expert’s perspective, NFC is the crucial link to E-commerce and the most effective key stage for fashion retail. ‘RFID im Blick’ asks why retailers should put NFC stickers on their products in addition to having an RFID solution?

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.

The city of Stuttgart pioneers a way of accessing transport and leisure services and purchasing in Germany

Anyone who travels regularly by public transport requires a ticket. Anyone who wants to use a car-sharing vehicle requires a card, and if you want to pay you need a card, too. And with each card the thickness of your wallet increases. Working with numerous partners, the city of Stuttgart has adopted an ambitious project to enable a single smart card to make payments and access transport and other services – this has been developed by the company Exceet for the Smart City project. Fabian Rau of Exceet talked to “RFID im Blick” about the aims of the project, the functionality of the application and the future potential of a newly developed security token.
