Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a crucial identification technology for knowledge-based economy. Many businesses in logistics, manufacturing, retail and healthcare sectors are using RFID to improve operational efficiency, achieve additional cost savings, and generate opportunities for higher revenues.A wide range of RFID applications have been implemented; each business sector has a unique interest in specific benefits they can draw from using this technology.
RFID offers vast benefits over other identification technologies such as barcodes. The benefits include instant identification from distance & status monitoring, stock/inventory visibility and traceability at any stage in the supply chain, increased data accuracy and sharing, increased operational efficiency without human intervention, reduced shrinkages… and the list goes on!
This seminar is organised by the Aston RFID Advanced Research. Invited guest speaker, Dr. Alfredo Colenci Net from University of São Paulo, Brazil who is a researcher of COSS Consulting and coordinated RFID implementation projects, and Aston PhD researchers will give a series of talks about current RFID research at Aston University and around the world.
