PRECONFERENCE SEMINAR

RFID in Government

This one-day preconference seminar is designed specifically for municipal, state and federal government agencies looking to understand how they can employ RFID within their operations to reduce costs and to offer better services. The seminar will provide the security and privacy information agencies need to understand before introducing any RFID applications that might affect consumers or businesses.

RFID Journal LIVE! preconference seminars provide in-depth information on specific aspects of EPC and RFID technologies. Attendees can choose to participate in one of these sessions prior to the opening of the main conference program. Preconference seminars are available through All Access, Conference + Preconference or Preconference + Exhibit-Only Pass.




What You Will Learn From This Track:
• How RFID cuts costs associated with tracking evidence and maintaining a documentation of each item's chain of custody
• How the technology eliminates errors associated with scanning bar codes to track the movement of evidence
• RFID's value in improving emergency response operations
• Identifying the dos and don'ts of a scalable, sensor-based solution
• The cost savings realized by using the RFID solution
• Future uses of radio frequency identification to create efficiency and continuity
• How RFID helps libraries serve customers more efficiently and effectively
• How a new type of RFID tag has been implemented to process and secure CDs and DVDs in a public library setting

RFID Basics
New to RFID? Here's your opportunity to gain a basic introduction to the fundamentals of RFID. The differences between the various classes of tags will be explained, including active and passive systems. The need for additional IT systems to build upon RFID in real-world applications will be highlighted. The session also includes a very brief overview of the EPCglobal Network, the future of ISO standards, ETSI reader regulations and the latest standardization efforts worldwide. Finally, the relationship between different standards in the area of RFID and EPC, including the latest EPC generation 2 standard, will be presented.

FEMA Case Study: Managing Assets With RFID
When a federally declared natural or man-made disaster strikes, people living in the affected areas rely on the Federal Emergency Management Agency to meet their needs. FEMA's housing inspection contractor, PaRR Inspections, must warehouse, deploy and recover a very large quantity of government-owned IT equipment as it aids disaster victims. In this session, learn how FEMA is employing an RFID-based asset-tracking program to warehouse and monitor 50,000 assets in times of critical need.

Speakers:
Allen Bennett, , Entigral Systems
Doug Frost, PE, Executive Director, PaRR Inspections
Takeaways:
• RFID's value in improving emergency response operations
• Identifying the dos and don'ts of a scalable, sensor-based solution

Netherlands Forensic Institute Turns to RFID to Track Crime-Scene Evidence
NFI employs an RFID-enabled track-and-trace system to establish and guarantee the chain of custody of crime-scene evidence. Evidence is collected, packed and sent to NFI for forensic analysis. All materials are tagged using a smart label with a bar code, readable text and a built-in RFID tag, either at the scene, or upon arriving at NFI. In the building, 50 doors are equipped with an RFID reader and antennas to track the movements of items and personnel. Hear how NFI uses the system to prove two items were never present in the same room together, excluding the possibility of cross-contamination, and learn how evidence is protected—and how, if it illegally leaves the building, an audible alarm is sounded immediately.

Speaker:
Andro Vos, Project Manager, Netherlands Forensic Institute
Takeaways:
• How RFID cuts costs associated with tracking evidence and maintaining a documentation of each item's chain of custody
• How the technology eliminates errors associated with scanning bar codes to track the movement of evidence

Florida Prosecutor Tracks Files, Gains Savings With RFID
The Florida Office of the State Attorney's 15th Judicial Circuit is employing passive RFID tags integrated with a real-time location system (RTLS) to create business benefits. Searching for and locating files and other important case details in the State Attorney's 15th Judicial Circuit can be time-consuming and potentially pull employees away from more important work. If files aren't found, case outcomes can be jeopardized. In this session, learn how the staff is utilizing RFID to reduce the time previously spent tracking down files, assets, parts, materials and tools, and how the technology can be used to improve the employees' ability to identify and serve customers.

Speaker:
Dan Zinn, CIO, Florida State Attorney's Office
Takeaways:
• The cost savings realized by using the RFID solution
• Future uses of radio frequency identification to create efficiency and continuity

Florida Uses RFID to Guard Against Chemical Leaks
The state of Florida is using wireless sensor tags in the city of Orlando, to ensure the state's 14 hydrogen-powered vehicles do not leak. The system, designed and developed by researchers at the University of Florida, could also be utilized by dealerships throughout the country, as fuel-cell vehicles proliferate, in order to ensure those vehicles can be safely stored and maintained. In addition, this sensor platform has been used in bio- and medical-sensing applications. In this session, learn how the solution can be employed by other companies and organizations to address concerns related to the safety of hydrogen storage for fuel-cell vehicles and generators, as well as for medical applications.

Moderator:
Fan Ren, Charles A. Stokes Professor of Chemical Engineering, University of South Florida
Panelists:
John Painter, Executive Office of The Governor, State of Florida
Steve Pearton, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor and Alumni Chair of Materials, Science and Engineering, University of South Florida

Using RFID to Improve Customer Service and Reduce Costs at Libraries
Libraries worldwide are adopting radio frequency identification to increase staff efficiency, reduce repetitive stress injuries and improve customer service. With a circulation of 14 million items per year, Utah's Salt Lake County Library ranks as the United States' seventh busiest public library. Using a new type of RFID tag developed by FCI Microconnections specifically for CDs and DVDs, the library has simplified self-service checkout, automated check-in and sorting, and improved theft detection for these materials. In this session, learn how RFID enabled the library to accomplish this goal.

Speaker:
Gretchen Freeman, Associate Director for Technology, Salt Lake County Library Services
Takeaways:
• How RFID helps libraries serve customers more efficiently and effectively
• How a new type of RFID tag has been implemented to process and secure CDs and DVDs in a public library setting
