2BUSINESS INFORMATION SYSTEMS1. IntroductionRadio Frequency identification or RFID makes use of electromagnetic and electrostaticcoupling in the portion of Radio Frequency electromagnetic spectrum used in uniquelyidentifying an object. This technology makes use of the electromagnetic fields in identifying andtracking the tags attached to the objects (Finkenzeller, 2010). The report discusses the workingprincipal of the RFID technology and explains the business and technical problems associatedwith this technology. The limitations, problems and the prospects of success in the market placeare discussed in the following paragraphs.2. How the technology works?RFID or radio frequency identification is a technology that is capable of reading thedigital data encoded in the different RFID tags. The working principal of RFID is similar to thatof barcoding but offers several other advantages one of which is that an RFID tag can be readeven outside the line of sight or through a large distance (Zhu, Mukhopadhyay & Kurata, 2012).RFID utilizes radio waves to identify the objects automatically and to collect data aboutthem. This data can be directly entered into computer systems without any human interventionand therefore, this technology is most widely used.The main components of an RFID include an RFID tag or label, an RFID reader and anantenna. The tags used in radio frequency identification consist of integrated circuit and anantenna that are used to for transmitting data to the receiver or the reader. The reader is thenresponsible for converting the radio waves into a usable form of data. The information, which arecollected from the tags are generally transferred with the help of an interface that facilitatescommunication to a host computer for data storage and analysis of the data (Lehpamer, 2012).
3BUSINESS INFORMATION SYSTEMSFigure 1: The working Principal of RFID(Source: Lehpamer, 2012)The tag chip illustrated in the image of figure1 identifies the host item. It powersthemselves from a connectivity device’s radio waves and are readable up to a range of 30 feet.This chip is generally preprogrammed with a tag identifier. This tag identifier consists of aunique serial number that is generally assigned by the chip manufacturer. Different tag antennasare used to collect energy, which is channelized to the chip in order to turn it on. The tag readersand antennas of RFID work together in reading tags (Ertl et al., 2013). The antennas areresponsible for converting the electrical current into electromagnetic waves. Theseelectromagnetic waves are then radiated into space, and are received by a tag antenna thatconverts it back to electrical current. This is how the RFID technology helps in identifyingobjects with RFID tags.
