Get 'On Track' With RFID

The Forum's Emerging Technologies Committee hosted this seminar on RFID (radio frequency identification) exploring the technical requirements, potential applications and policy implications of this expanding technology.

We're all familiar with EZ Pass but RFID is much more than tolls and parking. Both Wal-Mart and the Department of Defense are requiring RFID tagged shipments from their largest suppliers. RFID applications today also include supply chain management, security and access control, asset and document management. RFID tagging can be used for monitoring the whereabouts of supplies, equipment, evidence, documents, animals - and people. RFID has arrived and its uses will be expanding significantly in the next several years.
