Can simultaneously access information of multiple RF tags
Reading and writing is possible without a line of sight, using electric and electromagnetic wave transmission
By "combining an item with its information", a highly pliable and reliable system configuration becomes possible
Functions of RFID
Functions of a radio frequency identification (RFID) tagging system include internal control of fixed assets, internal control of expensed assets, and theft prevention. The RFID system involves a tag and a reader. When scanned, the antenna within the tag picks up the radio wave and sends a response back to the reader
