Abstract -
RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is highly developing technology in new days. It is also known as “internet of things”. Internet of Things is identified as one of the main pillars to nextgeneration Internet. Two technologies supporting this technological advancement are Radio Frequency Identification and Wireless Sensor Networks. They are used to automatically identify people, objects, and animals, as well as monitoring environmental parameters, and area monitoring. But in past years, RFID technology was not used that much because of lack of standardization and high costs. Latest technologies have brought costs down and standards are being developed. Today RFID is mostly used as a medium for numerous tasks including managing supply chains, tracking livestock, preventing counterfeiting, controlling building access, and supporting automated checkout. The use of RFID is limited by security concerns and delays in standardization. This paper describes RFID technology like how it works, its architecture, its applications in today’s world and also comparison with the other identification technologies. It offers the promise of reduced labor levels, enhanced visibility, and improved inventory management. There are many types of tags and reader available in market for different types of applications. Because each tag has some strength and weakness. This paper describes the different types of RFID tags. RFID has many application in many fields like in retail industry, agriculture, vehicle management, underwater applications, healthcare, smart homes and for security and safety purpose etc.
