One such technology is RFID (Radio Frequency Identification). RFID technology is a means of gathering data about a certain item and doesn’t need to physically in line of sight or touch of the data reader. It uses inductive coupling or electromagnetic waves and allows Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC). This technology has unlimited possibilities for connected devices around us right from goods, animals, gates, containers, machines even human are tagged through RFID’s. (ILIE-ZUDOR, 2006) Types of RFID’s- The various types of RFID’s are: 1. Passive: No battery and internal power supply, compact, store very small amount of data, cheapest form of RFID, read-only, writes only once. Also called as ‘Pure passive’, ‘reflective’ or ‘beam powered’. 2. Semi-Passive: batteries to run chip’s circuitry, communicate by drawing power from reader. Faster as compared to Passive RFID’s. 3. Active: Powered by internal battery, provides longer range, expensive batteries last about 10-15 years, powerful and can function against interferences such as radiation, water, electric shock etc. (ILIE-ZUDOR, 2006) History Long history of RFID can be briefed in the following figure: (Huntley, 2004) Further development happened during 2003 to 2008 and can be summarized as below: (IDC,
