CHALLENGES THAT RFID TECHNOLOGY BRING TO OUR COMPLEX RF ENVIRONMENT TODAY

With the evolution of IoT Technology, Short range device communication, RFID in particular, has grown in market potential in recent years. Shrinking labour market and increased consumers expectations have changed the way we do things today. The drive to support accurate real time data collection and to improve market efficiencies create opportunities for growth in the communication technology. Labour shortage in European airports at the initial stages of borders reopening last year showed the potentials of IoT to improve the quality of data control in consumers. The RFID market is identified by varying sources to balloon between US $35bil – $47bil by 2030. Increased use of the RFID technology brought forth the awareness in its myriad of challenges. Existing standards such as those from ETSI manage the basics to operate within their own conformance and EMC related specifications. AIM Standard 7351731 provides the option to check on electronics performance when met with RFID interference. Evolving situations require us to consider holistically the coexistence of RFID under the presence of other wireless technologies in our environment.
