RFID can play a key role in helping companies manage the inventory of materials arriving on a construction site, as well as reduce theft and improve the management of tools and other critical assets. This preconference seminar will share how end users are using RFID today. Additional presentations will explain the role of RFID in various applications, as well as which types of systems are most applicable, and how businesses can begin employing the technology on their construction sites.

RFID in Energy

This preconference seminar will examine the use of radio frequency identification in the energy sector. Topics will cover various types of RFID technologies, including passive ultrahigh-frequency (UHF), passive high-frequency (HF), RuBee LWID, 802.11x, ZigBee, active UHF and many others. Sessions will also review a variety of application areas, such as laydown yards, production facilities, service centers, oil rigs, refineries, pipelines and more. Speakers will focus on end-user case studies and the benefits that RFID could provide to chemical, gas and oil firms, as well as the challenges that must be overcome to achieve such benefits.

RFID for Food and Agriculture

This preconference seminar 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 and monitor the temperature of food as it moves through the supply chain.

RFID for IT Professionals
Sponsored By:
Academia RFID

RFID systems are not just another data-input source for a business' back-end systems. For companies to get the most value from an RFID investment, it's essential to have a robust software architecture for capturing data and turning it into information that can be used by business applications—in a way that provides for changing technology and business requirements. This seminar will explain how to build a complete software architecture, including the structure of RFID-based visibility data that enterprise applications consume, the data-capture software that creates this information, and the various architecture and product choices that an IT architect faces in building and deploying a successful system. The presenters will also explain how to employ RFID to track data-center assets.
