What is the RFID technology and why is it so important?

RFID, which stands for Radio Frequency IDentification, is a technology which exploits radio frequency signals for the automatic identification.

The RFID system is made of:

  1. The Transponder: it is the electronic part of the label. It includes the chip which has an internal data storage and it is connected to an antenna
  2. The Reader: it is a tool to receive and read the information coming from the RFID labels
  3. Management system: it helps managing the information coming from the RFID tags
