RFID ExplainedUpdated 2 years ago

RFID is an acronym for “radio-frequency identification

It refers to a technology whereby the digital data encoded in RFID tags or smart labels are captured by a reader via radio waves. RFID readers act very similar to barcode readers that you would find in any typical grocery or department store.

The big difference is RFID readers can capture data several feet away (up to 20 feet for high-frequency devices) and does not need to be within a direct line-of-sight of the reader to be tracked.
