RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. It allows for objects to be equipped with "RFID tags" to inexpensively transmit information about their location, configuration, and history to an automated reader. This should automate or improve various business processes from warehouse inventory control to security.

Although RFID has been around for quite some time, it is strongly hyped at the moment because of the diminishing cost of production of RFID tags. In this seminar, we will give an overview of the technical aspects of RFID, its place in the identification technology field, industry standards and involved software, and the business case for RFID.
