The UW RFID Lab supports research by members of the UW RFID Workgroup and serves as a resource for other companies.
Issues we’re currently addressing
- Compiling best-practice packaging-design guidelines based on the RFID system-performance effects of a product’s contents, packaging and media on
readadability (single tag, multi-tag) and writeability.
- Researching methods of overcoming the effects of external environmental conditions on RFID system performance.
- Improving individual RFID system components — such as tag design, reader design and network/data/software architecture.
- Using simulation models to determine how RFID can transform business and supply chain processes.
