Now Publishers Inc, 2011 - Business & Economics - 88 pages
RFID and the Internet of Things shows how RFID has transformed the supply chain over the last decade and examines the manufacturing, logistics and retail aspects of RFID. This monograph considers the related cost/benefit of RFID in these business environments. The authors describe a vision of an "Internet of Things," where each participating object has a digital shadow with related information stored in cyberspace. RFID and the Internet of Things introduces the reader to the relevant hardware and software as well as to standards and architectures. It then presents several case studies and uses cases showing how RFID can be used in manufacturing and retail with a focus on intra-enterprise applications and local benefits. The authors move further down the supply chain, discussing RFID applications in logistics and the perspectives for an Internet of Things. This is followed by a discussion of cost/benefit analyses of RFID implementations. The volume discusses possible security and privacy risks of RFID and presents several architecture proposals for a less centralized Internet of Things. The authors conclude with a summary and outlook.
