21-2 RFID for Transportation Asset Management

Brief Project Description: For Asset Management, an important aspect is keeping track of each asset item and recording its attributes, which requires each asset to be quickly and accurately identified. RFID is a wireless tracking technology that enables a reader to activate, read, and/or write data remotely between a transponder and a radio frequency tag attached to or embedded in an object. The advantages of RFID technology make it a key enabler to develop an automated transportation asset management system.
