Pros and Cons of RFID Technology
1. RFID tags are rugged and robust and can work in harsh temperatures and environment. The RFID system works at a remarkably high speed, even in adverse conditions. 2. RFID tags are available in different shapes, sizes, types and materials. The information on the read-only tag cannot be altered or duplicated. Read-write tags can be used repeatedly. The RFID tags are always read without any error. Direct physical contact between the tags and the reader is not required. RF technology is used for communication. Multiple RFID tags can be read at the same time. The RFID tags can be read in a bulk of ten to 100 tags at a time. Reading of the tags is automatic and involves no labour. 5. RFID systems can identify and track unique items, unlike the bar code system which identifies only the manufacturer and the product type. 6. The entire RFID system is very reliable, which allows the use of
RFID tags for security purpose. 7. The storage capacity of the RFID tags is greater than of any other
automatic identification and tracking system.
