Process controls for manufacturing and various other industries are getting more and more complicated due to the overwhelming stream of data flowing into their system. The primary goal today in most of the leading organizations is keeping track of this data, and organizing it in a suitable fashion so that it can be utilized and used later.

RFID in Tracking & Monitoring: An In-depth Product & Service Analysis with Case Studies explains the technology available to support tracking both normal and hazardous environments, including Radio frequency identification (RFID), Barcodes, GPS enabled tracking, WiFi enabled Tracking and others. Nearly all aspects of tracking addressed in this report via detailed evaluation, analysis, and price comparisons.

The report also provides detailed company analysis (products, services, and solutions). Case studies are to help the reader understand implementation issues and challenges. Cost factor analysis is also provided for the various spheres of implementation for different RFID based tracking system components.

This publication also evaluates the goals of some major RFID implementations with respect to tracking and monitoring READ MORE >
