Category descriptions

Description of a category to which RFID standards can be assigned. Usually related to their field of application.

Bar code conformance and performance

One thing that has been learned in the 40+ years of the implementation of applications based on bar code data capture is the need for conformance and performance standards. These are applicable whether the actual technology is a linear symbology or a 2-D symbology.

Bar Code Symbologies - 2D & Multi-row

Bar code symbologies are relevant to the Internet of Things as data carriers for identifiers. The relevance of any particular technology and standard to the Internet of Things depends on the application definition of the "identifier". This does not need to be unique to the level of "instant of".

Bar Code Symbologies - Linear

Bar code symbologies are relevant to the Internet of Things as data carriers for identifiers. The relevance of any particular technology and standard to the Internet of Things depends on the application definition of the "identifier". This does not need to be a unique level of "instance of" although some linear symbologies and their applications already achieve this.

Mobile RFID

The potential to read RFID tags with mobile devices has always been possible in the industrial and commercial sector. In contrast, the use of RFID tags and mobile phones presents a possible exponential growth in the number of RFID data capture devices that will be available.

RTLS (Real time location system) standards

A Real Time Location System (as defined in ISO/IEC 19762-5) is of a combination of wireless hardware and real time software that is used to continuously determine and provide the real time position of assets and resources equipped with services designed to operate with the system.

Security standards for data and networks

There are four zones in an RFID system where security features can be considered and applied:

Data exchange standards and protocols

Our definition of data exchange systems is intended to cover indirect communications between partners, usually through some hub mechanism. We exclude any direct peer-to-peer communication and any data exchange that can be implemented with in-house systems.

Environmental regulations (e.g. WEEE, packaging waste)

The Directives that are discussed in this section have some small direct impact on RFID, as will be discussed below. Their greater impact is on potential applications using RFID to implement the Directive or to assist in the management of systems associated with the Directive.
