Introduction to RFID Systems

Course Description

Truly grasping radio-frequency Identification (RFID) applications is essential to your tech, engineering or managerial career path in military, government laboratories, or the defense industry. RFID has become synonymous in its use for logistical tracking purposes, providing large businesses, military, and governments alike with better insight into their supply chains. RFID technology is also becoming ever more important for the evolving Internet-of-Things (IoT), where billions upon trillions of devices are electronically interconnected through the world. Many of these devices are expected to leverage RFID for tagging, tracking, and sensing applications. The Introduction to RFID Systems course introduces the basic concepts of RFID technology, reviews the major parts of a system and its benefits and limitations, illustrates some of the regulations behind them, and outlines best practices taken from case studies on how to implement a successful, commercial system.
