Talk at ENRI
Yesterday I had the chance to give a talk about RFID at ENRI in Tokyo - the electronic navigation research institute. I gave a about RFID. We were discussion applications of RFID in airports such as baggage tracking in Hong Kong. The current base line is barcode which has read-rate of 98.2% and RFID would have to better - that's a tough baseline. However, only than handling costs will be cheaper and hopefully justify the investments. Another discussion was about active RFID tags used for freight containers disturbing the flight instruments of the air craft.
