Since the Ministry of industry and information technology officially released the “Twelfth Five Year” development plan of the Internet of things, the Internet of things has been identified as one of China’s strategic emerging industries, which has undoubtedly given a shot in the arm for the development of the Internet of things in China.
RFID as a key technology to build the Internet of things, huge market space has emerged, divided into two directions – integration and standardization. The integration of RFID into product packaging, such as packaging box / bag / box, and RFID tags on the product, can monitor the whole life cycle of the product, and realize all aspects of traceability including production, storage, sales, service and other links. Therefore, printing and packaging manufacturers need to be prepared for this, including RFID composite technology upgrading and traditional equipment upgrading, to meet the demand of integration of RFID.
What are the technical characteristics of RFID tags?
1. There is no direct connection for RFID tag identification;
2. RFID tags are very durable and adapt to various harsh environments;
3. Compared with bar code, RFID tag can store more data;
4. Honglu RFID reader can read hundreds of electronic tags in one second;
5. The data in RFID tag is encrypted and can be locked, so the security performance is very high;
6. RFID tags can be read, written and reused repeatedly;
7. RFID tags can be printed with personalized information and patterns (such as instructions, bar codes or company names);
8. RFID system can be embedded in the company’s original system or other internal systems as a subsystem.
At present, RFID technology has not yet formed a unified international standard. At present, there are three main camps: ISO / IEC18000 standard of ISO, epcgglobal standard of USA and uid standard of Japan. Due to the inconsistency of standards adopted by different countries, the hardware and software systems are not unified, which hinders the popularization of RFID technology in globalization. Once the standards are unified in the future, it will bring great convenience to the development of IOT.
At present, the domestic RFID market application environment is not very mature, there are still many constraints, mainly for the high-end integrated service ability is not strong, the application level is low and the scale application is less, the user information foundation is weak, the tag information security is weak, etc. The upgrading of RFID technology will promote the development of Internet of things; And vice versa. Efficient RFID solutions can open up the upstream and downstream of the industrial supply chain, become hundreds of millions of terminal tentacles of big data management of the Internet of things, and finally feed back the Internet of things, making it more efficient and intelligent, bringing convenience to people’s lives, and promoting the prosperity of many industries.
The Internet of things is an external trend. The function of electronic tags is to give every visible and touchable object a “core”. With this “core”, the object has other meanings to the outside world, so that others can know its past and future.
I believe that with the rise of the era of Internet of things, and driven by new retail and e-commerce market favorable factors, RFID technology will be more and more promising and play an important role.
