The attachment of transponders to products as an alternative to barcodes to enable product or item identification some distance from a scanner or when out of line of sight.
The use of radio frequency technology such as RFID tags and tag readers to identify objects. Objects may include virtually anything physical, such as equipment, pallets of stock, or even individual units of product.
This refers to the ability to identify products through the use of small radio transponders, activated by a transmitter, to identify products. The transponder can carry a unique ID code or other information in its memory, and can be read at a distance without line of sight.
