Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is rapidly changing the way businesses track inventory and assets. From Wal-Mart and Tesco to the U.S. Department of Defense, early efforts are already showing benefits, but software, integration, and data processing for RFID still present a challenge. If you are a developer or an architect charged with developing an RFID system, this book is for you. Drawing on extensive experience, Bill Glover and Himanshu Bhatt provide you with essential information on this emerging technology.

With the knowledge you gain in these pages, you will possess the information and understanding you need to start designing, building, or integrating with RFID systems.

In RFID Essentials you will find information on:

  • Tags and tag protocols, including the Electronic Product Code (EPC)
  • Readers and reader protocols
  • RFID middleware
  • Security and privacy
  • Managing RFID devices
  • RFID's impact on your architecture
