Analysis on the development prospect of RFID market

RFID technology has a wide range of applications, ranging from automatic charging of bridges, highways and public transportation to identification of offices and factories. Especially in the fields of logistics, goods receiving and dispatching, warehousing and supply chain management in manufacturing industry, RFID technology has broad application prospects

at the recently concluded Conference on computing, office automation and information technology (CeBIT) of phenolic panels produced abroad with good thermal insulation performance held in Hannover, Germany, an RFID (radio frequency identification technology) chip only the size of an ant head became the biggest highlight of CeBIT. At the same time, throughout Hall 6, a theme has formed around RFID technology - RFID exists everywhere

as everyone knows, RFID technology will be applied to tickets for the 2006 World Cup in Germany for the first time to eliminate ticket scalping and other unsafe factors

similarly, in our daily life, it is not difficult to find that Wal Mart is driving on freight cars all over the world, on the packaging of Pfizer's "Viagra", in the books of the library, on the shoelaces of marathoners, and even on pet collars... In many "corners" of human life, RFID technology is slowly changing the way items are identified

IDTechEx predicts that the global RFID market will reach US $2.71 billion in 2006, and this number will climb to US $26.23 billion in 2016. With the further deepening of different applications in various fields, RFID market will create huge commercial value

why does RFID have such a large market development prospect? What is the charm of RFID

RFID fought for "World War II"

the earliest application of RFID technology was in the military field. We have to start with the Second World War

during the Second World War, the Allied forces applied RFID technology to fighter aircraft in order to identify the enemy and our aircraft in the dark

in the 1980s, this technology was more deeply applied in military management. For example, by using RFID technology, the U.S. Navy has improved its supply chain, logistics, maintenance, raw material management, and warehouse management at sea and on land

in the eyes of ordinary people, more enterprises regard RFID only as a supplement to bar code technology

in fact, in many cases, such as tracking pallets, cartons and containers in warehouse management, they can be used at the same time. However, RFID technology overcomes some defects of bar code technology. For example, using RFID technology, there is no need to look directly between the reader and the target with RFID tag

at present, RFID related products include tags, card readers, antennas and network structures, plus tag printers and other application systems

rfid technology has a wide range of applications, from automatic toll collection of bridges, highways and public transportation to identification of offices and factories. Especially in the fields of logistics, goods receiving and dispatching, warehousing and supply chain management in manufacturing industry, RFID technology has broad application prospects

in the past few years, there have been several positive signals in the economic operation of RF China's extruder industry. The main driving force of ID technology is still from the government and some large enterprises. Philips semiconductor, a famous supplier of semiconductor products, has used RFID "smart tag" technology and r2844-z RFID printer to improve Philips' supply chain management in Taiwan's manufacturing plants, so as to reduce costs, Improve service quality

beaver street, a supplier of Wal Mart, is widely used in the rapid packaging assembly line of packaging boxes

first make it clear that RFID

RFID is the abbreviation of radio frequency identification. Simply explain, RFID technology is that RFID sends data wirelessly. There is no need for a straight line of sight between the reader and the identified target, and it is a readable and writable technology. Therefore, RFID can update or change the encoded data in the tag during the tracking cycle

the RFID strip consists of an integrated circuit (IC) and a connecting antenna, which is usually a group of coils. The data stored in the integrated circuit can be sent through the antenna. A sign can be smaller than a grain of rice or as big as a brick. The RFID strip can be passive (without battery) or active (self powered by battery)

the data transmission speed and range will vary according to the frequency used, antenna size, power output and interference. The signature can be read-only, read-write or comprehensive. Among them, some data can be permanently stored (such as serial number), and there is residual storage space for subsequent coding and updating

information is sent to or read from the RFID strip by radio waves. In the passive system, which is the most common system, the RFID reader (or question answering device) sends an energy field to "wake up" the signature, and provides the energy to send or compile data

in active systems, batteries are usually used to improve the effective operating range of the tag. The active signature can also send signals regularly. Like the beacon signal, the recorded data signal is sent whenever the reader enters its range. The encryption algorithm that ensures the security and integrity of data can be transmitted between the signature and the reader to protect the sent content

readers can be integrated into handheld computers, connected by cables, or placed and positioned at strategic locations, such as facility entrances or assembly lines. The reader includes an antenna for transmitting and receiving signals and a processor for decoding. The collected data will be transmitted to the host computer system through the common interface (connecting cable or wireless local area network)

it is necessary to note that there are a wide range of RFID technologies to meet their own needs and even the needs of the world; The performance and storage characteristics of an application will determine the correct technology to be adopted

some common types of RFID strips and their performance characteristics can be divided into low frequency, high frequency and ultra-high frequency

there is such a feature that we need to recognize that except for metal, RFID strips can be read through packaging, transportation boxes and most materials. In this way, beer barrels, cylinders and other metal objects can usually be identified by RFID strips. After modification and positioning, these tags can reduce interference

Another important difference between

and barcode is that many RFID strips can be read at the same time

rfid accelerates the "goods movement"

from a global perspective, the trend of applying RFID technology in the logistics field is the most significant

the most extensive application of RFID in the logistics field is mainly reflected in the deployment of RFID tags on containers and pallets, so as to achieve the purpose of timely reading all data in the pallets during cargo loading and unloading, improve efficiency and reduce human errors

in addition, pasting RFID tags on goods can automatically complete the route arrangement of goods and determine to send them directly to the transit yard or the production line. The fast reading ability of RFID technology can make the identification process of freight boxes and all individual items inside them complete immediately

in terms of freight transportation, RFID technology can help packers quickly find and collect all the items required by the order. In terms of warehouse management, RFID technology can improve the object extraction of the warehouse. Workers scan shelves and containers with RFID readers, which can automatically detect the storage location of the items they are looking for, and detect the items with the wrong storage location, so that the items can "report" their location without human intervention

rfid "manages" the manufacturing link

in addition to playing well in the supply chain management, RFID technology can also bring more intelligent management means to enterprises in the manufacturing link

many car manufacturers stick RFID tags on the chassis to track them through the spraying station. In the manufacturing of personal computers, the product serial number and batch identification data can be safely compiled in the read-only memory to provide lifelong tracking and product certification

some manufacturers use this function to verify the qualification of returned and product warranty repair parts, and detect counterfeit products. The repair history can be stored on the tag and updated during maintenance

charge by RFID tag

when RFID technology is continuously applied in manufacturing enterprises, RFID technology is also constantly expanding its territory in other fields. For example, in the field of payment, many toll highways and bridges use RFID technology to let drivers pay tolls without parking at toll stations

when the vehicle passes through the lane where the charging antenna is installed, the reader can read the transponder attached to the vehicle when the vehicle is running at a speed of 80 km. The driver can receive the bill every month or deduct the charge from the prepaid stored value transponder

similar technology can be used in the public transport industry to collect car and train fees from passenger prepaid cards

exxonmobil's speedpass program saves drivers a lot of time wasted next to the oil pump. Customers participating in this program can choose to use RFID tags pinned to the key chain or pasted on the car window. When the tag enters the fuel pump reader 11) the service life of the whole machine:> 5 years, it will start the oil pump, and automatically charge the gasoline purchase fee to the driver's registered credit card account. While maintaining the confidentiality of the account, it provides faster services for the driver

McDonald's fast food restaurants are now offering similar services to speed up transactions at counters and drive in windows. At present, the RFID market applied in this field is growing rapidly

labeling people with "RFID"

personal identification can be said to be the simplest application of RFID technology. For example, the company's employee identification, by embedding the RFID transponder into the employee's personal ID card signature, can provide the security building with hands-free access, as well as anti transformation form of identification, so as to ensure that only authorized personnel can be allowed to enter

when there is a disaster or in the rescue work of terrorist events, the identity recognition function of RFID technology also has very obvious advantages. At present, bar code wristbands, which are widely used to identify patients and incident people in hospitals, can also be effectively used to identify thousands of victims

in the rescue work, using professional digital printers and consumables, organizations and institutions can quickly complete the authorization and deployment of rescuers and volunteers, and complete the tracking of evacuees and key equipment

disaster relief agencies can code and print identification cards, wristbands, and labels with words, bar codes, photos, and even RFID chips on site, which can help identify and find separated families more quickly and efficiently, and speed up the transportation and distribution of food, water, drugs, and other materials for help

photo ID card printer can make ID cards that mark volunteers and other professors. At the same time, the application of barcode in supply chain application is also indispensable for accelerating the distribution of emergency relief materials and equipment
