Uses of RFID systems

What applications can benefit from RFID?

The following are applications that could use this universal technology packaged in the appropriate form and delivered at the right price:
Computer vision for IT systems Information Technology systems have been built from sophisticated computer networks and application software, but still largely rely on manual or semi automatic data capture. The integration of RFID into labelling objects used with such systems allow the computer to automatically identify objects within 13 meters of the reader and process the data automatically
Warehousing Tracking of containers and pallets, stocktaking
Access control Ability to read the identity of many people at the same time passing through doorways, tube station entrances, lift access and doorways.
Identifying capital goods Ability to read the identity of transponders mounted inside capital goods or packaging, when in the warehouse, when being transported and even when passing through doorways for an asset tracking system.
Caselots of low value consumer items Same system can be used for the producer, wholesaler and retailer at case lot level of consumer goods for transferring via truck, checking in and out of warehouse.
Vehicles access control Ability to read many vehicles in different traffic lanes for parking, toll and access control.
Containers labelling Shipping, airfreighting and rail movement.
Courier parcels and documents Remote identity, sorting, routing and track-and-trace information
Parcels and mail bags Remote identity, routing, track-and-trace information.
Airline baggage Identifying, sorting and routing - not confused by the transponders that will be read from labelled goods within the luggage due to the use of RFID systems.
Compact discs and video retailing and rental EAS, identifying and stock taking
Laundry for hospitals and hotels Identity, sorting and routing after bulk washing
Motor vehicle tyres Transponder embedded into tyre provides positive identification of case for identifying, wear tracking, usage tracking, anti theft.

Labelling clothes and shoes Identifying, stocktaking, size distribution, self service, EAS. Reading clothes washing properties for an automated washing machine
Dismantling items For green legislation requiring the dismantling and sorting of old capital items, robot identification of parts and type of material.
Marking explosives Identity, track-and-trace, anti-theft
Sports events Timing marathon athletes, cyclists, MotoX, fun runs
Hospitals Tracking patients, access control, preventing baby removal, patient location and identification, computer authorisation of surgical procedures
Penal systems House arrest - verification of presence
Marking hotel possessions Remote identity of possessions in clients luggage
