Improving Traceability Via UHF RFID Tags

Pre Conference Session
In June of 2011, the RFID Application Development Lab (RADLab), at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), was contracted by the Alberta Livestock and Meat Agency (ALMA) to conduct a proof of concept and field trial of UHF RFID technology in Alberta's beef industry. The current LF technology faces some distinct challenges, and the opportunities and use cases for UHF RFID in this industry were ripe for harvest. At that time the project began, there was interest but almost no activity with UHF in this sector. Learn how the technology can be used to decrease the error read rate and improve read accuracy at a speed that better meets industry demands, and how it can also be more cost-effective, by lowering hardware costs.
