RFID Systems

You can find Radio Frequency IDentification systems (RFID systems) being used everywhere. They allow an object to be identified through unique data that is transmitted via radio waves. RFID technology is now being used in the waste management sector to improve recycling rates and maximise efficiency by making use of unique RFID transponders. All that is required is the installation of a robust RFID tag into each bin, and an RFID reader into each collection vehicle.

RFID Systems for Waste Collection

RFID Systems

RFID waste management RFID systems allow for the identification and traceability of waste streams. Unique RFID tags can be attached to waste containers enable waste operators to monitor sorting quality, track how many times a container is put out for collection and even track the weight and nature of its contents.

RFID Systems on Waste Collection Vehicles

RFID is now being used by both public and private sector waste collection operators to monitor their waste pickup. Waste disposal trucks can easily be equipped with RFID readers to scan the unique RFID tags associated with each of the bins that they collect. RFID readers can easily record the exact time and location every single time a waste container is emptied. This unparalleled level of knowledge gives a new, greater ability to monitor and control the entire waste disposal process. By using RFID systems, waste operators can have access to accurate real-time data that can be used for a multitude of purposes: from customer billing to better route and resource planning.

RFID Waste Tracking

The waste industry has increasingly turned to technology to help to manage day to day operations more efficiently and effectively. For over ten years now, RFID systems have been used by waste collectors to improve performance and boost recycling rates. RFID systems allow waste to be identified and traced throughout the entire chain RFID tags can easily be applied to waste containers and trucks can have RFID readers installed to improve sorting, validating and verifying pickups, tracking how many times a container is used and tracking the weight of the contents at each pickup. A waste management system with RFID makes billing for service simple and allows for incentive-based invoicing. In conjunction with GPS, RFID systems give real-time visibility of waste management activities.

RFID Systems for Wheelie Bins?

We find waste containers in many materials and sizes, but all are subjected to harsh environments and rough handling. Because they are stored outdoors, waste containers are exposed to the elements: but RFID tags can withstand such conditions and continue to function effectively for the entire life cycle of the containers.

Safer Hazardous Waste Collection

When it comes to managing hazardous waste disposal RFID systems provide a high degree of visibility and traceability. This can provide operators with an audit trail of every step in the process from the time and place the waste was picked up to the time and place of its disposal, together with every stop in between.

RFID Systems museum

RFID Systems museumYou can find Radio Frequency IDentification systems (RFID systems) everywhere. They allow objects to be identified using data transmitted via radio waves. RFID technology is now being used in museums to create interactive exhibits. Just like any technology in a museum, you must carefully consider the exhibition’s aims and objectives to make RFID systems fit in seamlessly – but by carefully embedding tags and readers in the appropriate places you can create a visitor experience that is second to none.

RFID Systems in Museums

One way to improve visitor interaction in an exhibition space is to use RFID systems. RFID is a simple, reliable and relatively inexpensive way to connect visitors and museum exhibits. Even if you are unfamiliar with the terms, you may have used an RFID card and reader on the London transport system or to access a hotel room. By passing a card over a reader, which may be embedded within an object, a user instantly communicates with computer software, without any further physical input from. For example, in a museum environment, RFID tags and readers could trace an individual visitor’s path through a building to discover which exhibits are most popular. Visitors can be encouraged to use the RFID card by embedding their responses to questions into the content of the exhibition itself.

Why is RFID better than barcodes?

Older input technologies – keyboards, physical buttons, touch-screens or barcode scanners – can collect the same information, but RFID is probably the most elegant solution as it is so seamless in operation and requires so little maintenance.  Another benefit of RFID systems is the relatively low cost.

RFID Systems

RFID SystemsRadio Frequency IDentification systems (RFID systems) allow almost any object to be identified using data transmitted via radio waves. Being able to identify and track items individually or as crates or pallets, without needing a line of sight, is advantageous for many companies. It is a relatively cheap and extremely effective way of tracking assets. RFID is everywhere – has your business joined the RFID revolution?

Why Use RFID Systems?

Just some of the additional benefits of using RFID systems are

  • No need for need line of sight
  • RFID tags can be rewritten and reused
  • RFID tags are extremely durable against impact and the environment
  • RFID tag data can be encrypted for extra security
  • Dozens of tags can be read within seconds
  • RFID systems can be integrated with other software

RFID is Everywhere

You probably don’t even realise how many times you used RFID or pass an RFID-enabled device every day. You will find RFID used in hundreds of applications, such as:

  • The microchip implant used to identify animals
  • Access cards and key fobs used to enter buildings,
  • Automated toll collection on roads and bridges,
  • Truck weigh stations
  • Contactless credit card readers

RFID technology is everywhere, and the uses keep on multiplying. Hotels are now starting to using RFID for their room keys, hospitals use RFID systems for inventory control, warehouses for asset management, and even construction sites for tracking tools. The possibilities are endless.

RFID is really coming into its own in the connected world of the 21syt century. More and more uses for RFID systems are popping up every day. From RFID tags in the wristbands issued at music festivals to tracking golf balls at the driving range. RFID technology is growing rapidly and it is enabling the Internet of Things (IoT).  As the question on peoples’ minds changes from “What is RFID?” to “What can I do with RFID?”, can you afford for your business to be left behind?
