A Brief History Of Radio Frequency Identification Technology
Its Spread Continues Into Our Daily Lives
This article on the Wikipedia site offers some details of the history, design and uses of the technology since that beginning in the espionage game. Some would say is has never stopped being a tool of the intelligence community, in all of its mundane and commonplace uses. The article provides some insight into that attitude, as well.
However, the technology provides value and convenience in many ways. From simplifying and expediting the stock taking process in your local box stores to allowing you to pay for purchases with a tap or a wave, the radio-based roots of RFID are showing in many parts of our every day lives.
The article provides details about the variety of tags or chips, readers, frequencies and signaling protocols that take advantage of the basic capability of radio waves to impart energy to a suitable device and cause it to send back information. It explains the differences between passive and active systems, a difference that means there is a great difference in the distances over which information can be transmitted. This variation is the source of much confusion among members of the public and reading this article can help clear it up.
A reader will learn there of the many industries using RFID technologies. That list includes commerce (for payments, asset management, product tracking, etc.), transportation and logistics, public transport, passports, animal identification, sports and others.
Also of interest in the Wikipedia article is the link made to the emerging Near Field Communications technology which also uses one of the common RFID frequencies (13.56 MHz) and which can be found in many recent Smartphones. Any one of those phones has the potential to become an unauthorized scanner and raises the threat to a person's assets and property. Fraud and Identity Theft can be committed with the information retrieved illegally from a credit card.
One section of the article specifically deals with the issue of shielding chips and tags used in these processes. CARD ID Preserver sleeves are compliant with the CIPS-201 standard identifies there. They provide shielding for the low power / high-frequency proximity systems involved in radio frequency systems encountered daily for payments or crossing borders.
