RFID Products That Operate in—and Sense—Harsh Environments

Pre Conference Session
Temperature, chemical exposure, sterilization and physical abuse are just some of the challenging environments in which RFID is being used in the automation, medical, energy and transportation sectors. Just overcoming these harsh conditions to provide RFID data capture might not be enough—the products need to sense these conditions. Passive RFID technology needs to connect with external sensors to meet the needs of companies in future RFID deployments. This will provide the baseline for maintenance-free, self-adjusting processes within many different market fields. Learn how RFID can be used to sense and adjust to harsh environments.
