On Wednesday, presenters at RFID World
in Boston focused on using second-generation active and passive RFID
tags to provide advanced security and authentication, as well as ways
to broaden the reach of the technology.
the buzz from attendees was how the average wireless device could soon
become an RFID reader, or perhaps a related radio-capable device for
Near Field Communication, a short-distance radio technology to give a
mobile user easy access to all kinds of data.
Comments from Wireless and Mobile News:
could include credit card payments for toll booths, fast food
indulgences or coupons at the supermarket. If an RFID reader was
embedded, a quick scan of the booth at th swap meet could reveal the
inventory and what was sold or stolen.
