TrackabilityWe’re all tagged! 🙂

This was the opening joke of the seminar devoted to RFID technology held on tuesday inside the exposition Trackability in fieramilanocity.

Paolo Conti, always brilliant as moderator, asked the attendees to search for some kind of tag in their pockets. Someone had it inside the car keys (Vespa in my case) for the immobilizer function, someone inside the access badge and someone in the car for the telepass.

Without even knowing it RFID is a technology we’re already using since a long time. There’s a lot of talking about it lately because of its advantages in different fields, but the real problem for its large scale deployment, as has been discussed during the seminar, is its integration with the information system in order to exploit its full potential.

All the presentations were at very high level and at the final roundtable participated for the first time representatives from italian RFID university labs, from the recently born RFID Solution Center of the Politecnico di Milano, to the one of La Sapienza in Roma and the universities in Messina, Parma, Liuc in Castellanza and Supsi in Lugano.

For i-muse RFID is very important. It’s a kind of implementation in a field much less complex compared to logistics or product trackability, but the benefits are relevant and most of all, for the sake of usability, it will be totally invisible to the user. 😉
