Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tagging is now mandated by the department of defense and many of the world's largest retailers including Wal-Mart. In order to stay competitive, more than 200,000 manufacturers and suppliers must develop strategies for integrating RFID technologies into their supply chains.

RFID in Logistics: A Practical Introduction provides businesses and other relevant concerns with an authoritative step-by-step guide to the implementation and diverse applications of this revolutionary communications technology.

  • Survey RFID applications in entertainment, credit devices, wireless communications, healthcare, and libraries

  • Learn about both active and passive system components testing models

  • Examine best practices for integrating RFID technology into the supply chain

Combining techniques from computer, electrical, and industrial engineering, RFID in Logistics: A Practical Introduction supplies the basic instruction needed to develop and implement RFID technology.
