How RFID is used in Airline Baggage Tags

RFID is a relatively simple technology that is proving to have multiple uses in today’s modern world. Right now, it is commonly used in the supply and logistic industry, in toll payment, and in IoT applications. In the last few years, RFID use has also started to gain traction in airports around the world.

What is RFID?
RFID is an acronym for “Radio-Frequency Identification”. The device consists of a small chip and an antenna. The chip is capable of carrying data, while the antenna is used to transmit the data. RFID, like a barcode, is a useful tool for tracking and traceability. Unlike a barcode, however, it does not require a scanner with precise accuracy. It can contain a range of information, depending on the application it is used for. For example, RFID tags are used for tracking items along with their supply chain by marking products with RFID tags that contain the style, color, brand name, product code, manufacturing location and more.
