Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a technology that allows items to be labeled with RFID tags and the tags to be automatically read when passing within the vicinity of an RFID antenna and reader. Tags can be read through a variety of substances such as paint, grime, and other visually and environmentally challenging conditions, where barcodes or other optically read technologies would be useless. RFID tags can also be read in challenging circumstances at remarkable speeds, in most cases responding in less than 100 milliseconds.
