RFID Journal Virtual Event

RFID in Harsh Environments 2014
Companies in the oil and gas, chemical, mining, construction and energy industries are using RFID technology to improve operational safety and efficiency, as well as financial results. In this virtual event, learn how the technology can be used for asset tracking, personnel safety and equipment maintenance, as well as to speed production and shipping processes in harsh and complex environments.

Leveraging Ultra-Durable RFID for Asset Lifecycle Management
InfoChip's holistic solution provides visibility to upstream and downstream oil and gas. The firm has created an eco-system for cradle-to-grave asset management. The solution is optimized when each party in the lifecycle interacts with assets for improved identification, location tracking and safety compliance. InfoChip will showcase rugged RFID tags currently being used in extreme oil and gas environments. This presentation will also review how equipment manufacturers, distributors and end users utilize RFID's unique identification to work together in creating, updating and managing an asset record throughout its lifecycle. Moreover, the presenter will discuss additional benefits, such as purchasing alerts in the event that an asset fails an inspection.
Speaker: Jim Stradinger, VP of Sales, InfoChip

Asset Tracking in Harsh Environments Using an Interoperable Active RFID System
Supply chain optimization is now an imperative for corporations. Unfortunately, current track-and-trace functionality does not cover the end-to-end supply chain. The greatest impediment to a complete solution are the varied proprietary active tagging systems that do not allow for interoperability. During this presentation, Tony Kington will introduce Omni-ID's new Power 415, the industry's first active tag that runs on the IEEE 802.15.4 protocol, enabling interoperability between provider products. This tag is the first combination UHF passive-active RFID tag that is certified intrinsically safe and designed for extreme durability and use in dangerous environments, such as the energy industry. This powerful combination provides the ability to create dynamic systems that include bar codes, as well as passive and active RFID, allowing vendors and operators to encode and identify assets over a common format, creating a truly interoperable system.
Speaker: Tony Kington, Chief Operating Officer, Omni-ID
11:45 AM
Automating Processes in Harsh Environments Via RFID: Case Studies and ROI Metrics
Harsh-environment use cases span multiple industries, including industrial equipment, oil and gas, mining, chemicals and life sciences. RFID is being used to automate processes in research facilities, exploration, manufacturing and aftermarket services. This session will discuss real-world examples of RFID process automation in harsh environments, from planning considerations and ROI metrics to systems integration and enterprise deployment. In addition, a deployment guide containing process flows and systems-integration examples will be provided.
Speaker: Su Doyle, Industry Programs, OATSystems, a division of Checkpoint
12:00 PM
Choosing the Right RFID Technology for Manufacturing and Harsh Environments
Many tags claim to be suitable for harsh environments, but as different as tags are, so are the definitions of "harsh" for various use cases. Standards are difficult to read, however, and tend to show up mostly in the form of strange numbers on datasheets. This presentation will explain the most relevant standards, and visualize the test methods associated with each, thereby enabling attendees to better map their needs to datasheet specifications and make the proper tag choice for their particular use cases. This session will also outline the steps that manufacturers must take to choose the right RFID system for a wide array of applications, including tracking parts bins, returnable transport containers, tools, work-in-process, finished goods inventory and much more, while building out an infrastructure for tracking and better managing other assets.
Speaker: Jason Warschauer, Sales Applications Engineering Manager, HID Global
12:25 PM
Improving Visibility of Road Sensors With RFID
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is employing passive EPC Gen 2 UHF RFID tags to help it better identify the exact locations of the buried sensors it uses to test various road-construction materials and processes. The sensors, which measure strain and pressure levels, are used to test the performance of a variety of roadway materials, mixes and pavement design methods, as part of the agency's MnROAD project. In the past, to determine the sensors' exact locations, MnROAD would use a survey crew, as well as measurements from control points along the roadway. The team learned that neither of these methods is foolproof in determining a sensor's exact location on the pavement's surface, for a number of reasons. Learn how MnROAD is using RFID tags to accurately locate its roadway sensors, enabling it to better understand the relationship between sensor location and its response to traffic loading.

RFID for Warehouse and Inventory Management 2017
In this virtual event, learn how to benefit from deploying radio frequency identification within your warehouse by managing your inventory and coordinating your supply chain. Hear real-world case studies explaining the tangible business benefits of how RFID can help your organization improve visibility regarding product movements and related transactions, as well as increase efficiencies, lower labor costs, optimize inventory levels, track assets and differentiate your logistic service, in order to gain a competitive advantage.
RFID in the Food Industry 2017
This virtual event is designed to educate growers, distributors and producers of food and food products, as well as systems integrators and other implementers, regarding the benefits of using RFID to track the location of food and monitor its temperature as it moves through the supply chain. The seminar will explain the current state of RFID, and reveal how your organization can deploy the technology to achieve such benefits today.
RFID in Retail and Apparel Virtual Event 2017
Retail and apparel companies have been among the early adopters of RFID technologies, both internally and within their shared supply chains. Today RFID's value has evolved far beyond inventory visibility to building the foundation for responsive retailing. During this virtual event, hear how retailers worldwide are using RFID and Internet of Things technologies to become more agile and responsive in an increasingly competitive market.
Internet of Things 2017
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a broad term being used to cover technologies that give network connectivity to everyday objects, from wearable computers to common products. What's behind all the excitement about the Internet of Things? How will companies benefit from IoT technologies? What will be the impact on consumers? What strategies should companies use to take advantage of IoT technologies, and which technologies will dominate the IoT? This virtual event will feature case studies from early adopters. Learn from industry experts, market leaders and analysts who will share their insights about overcoming technical, user and governmental challenges, and how to create effective business models using the power of the Internet of Things.
