本文是对刚于9月在德国制造业中心杜塞尔多夫召开的RFID & Wireless IoT Tomorrow 2017展会的回顾。Xerafy连同其他55家公司参加了此次欧洲规模最大的RFID会议，展示了升级后的适用于户外的Trak系列标签。Xerafy的前沿技术也在开发人员和最终用户座谈中得到展示，10个医疗终端客户案例中有3个特别提到了对Xerafy技术的使用。
A look back at RFID & Wireless IoT Tomorrow 2017 in September in Dusseldorf, the manufacturing heart of Germany. Xerafy joined 55 companies at Europe’s largest RFID event and presented the upgraded Trak series of outdoor tags. Xerafy technology was also present in the Developers and End-User talks, featuring prominently in 3 of the 10 Healthcare End-User cases.
Our updated Trak series got some sustained marks of interest from both the market and the media
RFID systems don’t have to take years to generate a return on investment in aviation applications. By leveraging the technology across multiple applications, airlines, suppliers and manufacturers can quickly generate a positive ROI.
In Part 2 of this RFID for Aviation series, Xerafy takes a look back at how applications for RFID increasingly deliver operational performances to the Aviation industry.
Many companies used to be concerned about exactly how long it will take RFID technology to provide tangible benefits and a positive return on investment (ROI). In fact, some companies still believe that RFID solutions will take many years to provide an opportunity to recoup their costs.
Xerafy is enhancing its leadership position in the UHF RFID space by joining RAIN RFID, an industry organization that promotes the adoption of EPC UHF RFID technology. The group – which is hosted by industry trade association AIM Global and includes leading technology companies like Google and Intel – promotes deployment through education, testing and support of solution developers and end users.
RAIN, founded in 2014, has played a key role in expanding education for end users to help them select, test, and deploy new solutions, as well as providing guidance in establishing RFID’s critical role in the emerging Internet of Things (IoT). RAIN RFID’s membership has now grown to more than 130 member organizations, including hardware and software providers, end users, academic organizations, and integrators. Other notable members include Amazon, the standards body GS1, Tokyo University of Technology, and most major RFID hardware and software providers.
Xerafy also becomes a member of AIM Global, the leading trade organization for automatic identification technology companies. In addition to serving as an education and advocacy resource, AIM has also developed important industry standards for both barcode and RFID technology. Most recently, the organization released a new healthcare standard for testing non-implantable medical devices to see if they are immune to emissions from RFID systems.
Through our participation in these leading associations, Xerafy not only benefits from sharing knowledge with existing and potential partner companies, we can also help educate end users about our rugged RFID solutions and work with the industry to help shape new standards and industry use cases in healthcare and the oil and gas industries.
