Radio Frequency IDentification is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders. An RFID tag is an object that can be applied to or incorporated into a product, animal, or person for the purpose of identification using radiowaves. Some tags can be read from several meters away and beyond the line of sight of the reader.

Today, a significant thrust in RFID use is in enterprise supply chain management, improving the efficiency of inventory tracking and management. However, a threat is looming that the current growth and adoption in enterprise supply chain market will not be sustainable. A fair cost-sharing mechanism, rational motives and justified returns from RFID technology investments are the key ingredients to achieve long-term and sustainable RFID technology adoption.

RFID at IEM is an earnest initiative born out of faculty and student interactive cooperation resulting in the development of devices and technology promising to revolutionize the idea of Contact-less Identification Systems. The IEM RFID Research Cell is the body catering to the collective aggregation of this new technology for opening up new vistas in this vast yet unexplored domain of identification technology.

We, at the cell associated closely to expertise and association from our Institute and Industry work on the fields of Organizational Attendance Tracking & Movement Management, Supply Chain & Terminal Logistics Management, Homeland Security & Hazardous Environment Automation.

Research and Development activities have been extensively undertaken since the formation of the cell. Publications of the works and activities undertaken at leading Journals & Conferences, substantiate for the extent of initiatives.
