RFID for Energy & Utility Industries
Although radio frequency identification (RFID) has been used for decades, the technology is just now gaining momentum in the energy industry. Power plants can employ RFID for everything from security for the workforce, tracking fuel consumption, and even monitoring plant exhaust. The applications for RFID are endless, and the technology is applicable in nearly every field. Lead authors Dipankar Sen, Prosenjit Sen, and Anand Das bring years of entrepreneurial experience with RFID technology to this primer for plant foremen, system engineers and those decision-makers looking to enhance operational efficiency.
