National RFID Centre (NRC) Seminar on Active RFID & Real Time Location System

Date: 15 Nov 2007 - 15 Nov 2007

Venue: Auditorium, Level 3, SIMTech Tower Block


Ford, BP, Boeing and the US Army are prominent names among a fast growing number of users of Real Time Location Systems (RTLS) enabled by active RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology. Unlike passive RFID tags, active RFID tags have their own internal power source that powers the integrated circuits and broadcasts the signal to the reader. They can therefore transmit at higher power levels than passive tags, allowing them to be more effective in "RF challenged" environments like water, metal, or at longer distances.

Who Should Attend

This seminar is relevant to users, vendors, practitioners, industry professionals, managers, engineers, academic staff, researchers with interests in RFID for manufacturing, retail, logistics, aerospace, healthcare, tourism and hospitality industries.
