RFID is a radio frequency identification technology. The access cards and bus cards we use in life are all rfid technology. Now with the development of the Internet of Things, rfid technology plays a major role in the Internet of Things. Today, STARNFC and everyone will learn about RFID in modern life.

Driverless cars are also one of the focuses of current attention. Since its birth, it has been favored and sought after. A large number of bus drivers, taxi drivers, drip drivers and so on are likely to be laid off.
Driverless cars require a large number of sensors, and RFID’s identification, communication, positioning and other technologies will be widely used in driverless driving.
In addition, in the era of driverless cars, smart tires have become standard, and smart tires need to be embedded with RFID tags. For example, unmanned car tires need to be waterproof, anti-magnetic, high temperature resistant, long service life, large reading distance, data on the label can be encrypted, storage data capacity is larger, and storage information can be changed freely.
The concept of smart packaging was introduced in 1992 at the “Smart Packaging” conference in London, and it is not a new thing. But RFID smart packaging is an emerging concept in the smart packaging industry, and RFID smart packaging will bring a big change to the packaging industry. In fact, it can be said that RFID smart packaging is born out of anti-counterfeiting traceability requirements. The application of RFID in smart packaging is the further popularization and expansion of RFID technology in the field of product anti-counterfeiting. RFID smart packaging mainly uses Near Field Communication (NFC) and Ultra High Frequency (UHF) technology, and each item has an RFID electronic tag as an “electronic ID card”, so that each product has a global unique number (the label cannot be copied, Counterfeit), can achieve anti-counterfeiting, traceability, anti-smuggling products.
RFID technology is one of the core technologies for intelligent packaging to build a life-cycle big data and anti-counterfeiting big data platform. Intelligent packaging products can easily track and trace through the entire supply chain, ensuring end-to-end (ie from The complete transparency of the core raw materials to the end of the product’s end of life and reuse.
RFID technology provides a large-capacity platform, so RFID smart packaging can also give more information to the product, and merchants and consumers can have more interaction.
At present, RFID smart packaging is mainly used in the fields of medicine, high-grade food, wine and so on. High cost is the main obstacle to the development of smart packaging. If you want to use smart packaging for common products, you need to invest more in research and reduce costs, so that smart identification technology can enter the daily consumer market.

RFID in medical field
RFID can be applied to hospital medical monitoring, medical device management, patient identification, baby theft, hospital asset management, etc.
Medical monitoring: RFID technology enables rapid identification of all patients, registration of admission and effective first aid work. For specific applications, each patient wears a wristband label that contains various information about the patient, such as first aid, all treatments, and drug registration records. Medical staff can scan the label information with a handheld reader to know a large amount of information about the patient. RFID technology provides a reliable, efficient and economical method of information storage and testing, reducing hospital delays in emergency patients and reducing the incidence of medical malpractice. RFID technology also reduces unnecessary manual entry and avoids human error.
Newborn identity management anti-theft: hospital newborn babies are stolen, and replacements also occur from time to time. Mainly because of the similar characteristics of newborn babies, and lack of understanding and expression ability. The mother and child information is written and paired one by one by RFID technology, and the newborn baby is monitored by the RFID identification device. When an attempt is made to steal a newborn from a hospital ward, the RFID identification device can detect the alarm in real time and notify the security guard of the latest location of the stolen baby.
In addition, RFID will also apply asset management, supply chain management and other technologies to the hospital’s important assets and materials tracking and positioning applications and pharmaceutical supply chain management applications.
The picture below is from Technavio’s report on RFID, ranking fifth in the medical industry.
In China, from the economic level, the health expenditure of residents has increased, and the policy of the country has been continuously reformed, which has promoted the informationization of the medical industry and promoted the construction of smart medical care. RFID technology started late in the medical industry, and the medical industry market is broad. Smart medical care and hospital information construction will promote the popularization of RFID in the medical industry.
RFID technology will also bring five major changes in the medical industry:
- Improve surgical instrument tracking
- Improve patient safety
- Better supply chain management
- UDI compliance
- Improve asset management
In the future, let us expect more beautiful things to happen.
