Top 10: Best Practices for Deploying RFID in Harsh Environments
Deploying a successful RFID solution in harsh environments requires specific knowledge and considerations that can only be gained through extensive field application experience. Omni-ID will share the learnings it has gleaned from deploying millions of tags for some of the largest energy and industrial manufacturing companies in the world. From the Middle East to the North Sea, Omni-ID's expertise has been sought to implement solutions across diverse environments—each with its own set of challenges. Omni-ID's Kathy Gannon will share the experiences she has gained on the front lines deploying harsh-environment solutions. From architecting a solution for asset tracking to MRO or meeting regulatory requirements, Kathy will review the ten best practices that every end user and solution provider should consider when implementing solutions under harsh conditions.
Speaker: Ed Nabrotzky, Chief Solutions Officer, Omni-ID

Transit Authority Enhances Track Worker Safety With RFID
Track inspections are one of the most hazardous jobs in the rail industry, because the integrity of the rail and track conditions plays a significant role in ensuring that trains are able to move people safely. Inspections of the rail and track area are often conducted at all hours of the day and night, due to the frequency of required inspections, and the job presents hazards as track inspectors often walk along tracks while trains are in service. One rapid-transit system is employing RFID to improve safety for railway and track-side workers. The transportation authority is utilizing passive high-frequency (HF) RFID tags embedded in wristbands worn by personnel, readers installed along the tracks and motion sensors to detect oncoming trains to alert workers about those trains. Learn how the system is being used to enable automated setup of safety zones for workers, and to provide timely alerts for train operators, thereby reducing the risk of accidents.

RFID for Tough Environments: Tag Selection and Use Cases
Many RFID technologies are currently available, with different pros and cons for potentially thousands of use cases. The energy, mining and construction industries, with their harsh, metallic and potentially explosive environments, set special demands on the RFID technology that is supposed to optimize inventory, prevent human error and optimize equipment handling. New active technologies like Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) open up new use cases, such as fast and accurate asset location and predictive condition monitoring. This session will explore the many characteristics of available technologies, as well as pitfalls to avoid and parameters to consider when selecting an RFID system for rough environments.
Speaker: Tim Hoffman, North American Sales Manager, HID Global
12:30 PM
RFID Strategies and Best Practices for End Users in the Energy Industry
Despite its potential for driving business value, RFID creates significant demands on an organization. Learn how to minimize risks while increasing the likelihood of a well-executed project. From early-stage analysis through implementation, there are tools and methods that every corporate IT or project manager can use to ensure success.
