Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technologies: A Workshop


 Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Technologies: A Workshop Summary provides a summary of discussions by panelists and participants at a workshop organized by CSTB's Committee on Radio Frequency Identification Technologies.

Project Scope

The Computer Science and Telecommunications Board is organizing a 2-day workshop that will explore radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies and related technical and policy issues. Participants will include representatives from industry, academia, government, and relevant non-governmental organizations. The workshop will address RFID technology (including a comparison with other related technologies); what is now technically possible with RFID technology and related technical issues; interactions between RFID and other embedded technologies; and the economics of RFID technology, among other issues. A brief report of the workshop will be produced.
