Third-generation RFID tech eyes major market needs
This article was originally published in Clinica
The adoption of a third-generation active radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, called ubiquitous (or wireless) sensor network (USN), is set to overlap with the burgeoning introduction of second-generation real-time locating systems (RTLS), according to RFID analysts IDTechEx. “Both RTLS and USN are set to become multibillion dollar markets, such are the needs for these systems,” claims IDTechEx chairman Peter Harrop. Healthcare, in both the clinical and resource management settings, is seen as a leading and growing sector for RFID (see Clinica No 1324, p 18).
