21-2 Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Similar Technologies for Transportation Asset Management

Project Dates: Oct 1, 2021 - Mar 31, 2023

Project Description:

For Asset Management, an important aspect is to keep track of each individual asset item and records its attributes, which requires each asset 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 the RFID technology make it a key enabler to develop an automated transportation asset management system.
