White Paper: Cost-Benefit Analysis Of An RFID Asset Tracking System


By Shayne Pidding, RAMP RFID

This paper outlines the cost-benefit analysis of using Ultra High Frequency (UHF) Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in an asset-tracking application. To facilitate the analysis, RFID will be compared against the incumbent technology, bar-coding. An experiment comparing these two technologies was conducted, and the findings from this experiment are further analysed.
