Exploring RFID Applications in the World of IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become popular recently due to the advancement of the Internet and different communication protocols. IoT deals with different devices connected as a network to achieve a common goal. RFID(Radio Frequency Identification) is a communication technology where electromagnetic radio signals are used to identify and detect the presence of objects within a short range of distance. RFID and IoT are complementary technologies used to interconnect many devices and sensors. These technologies have enabled a wide range of applications, that we discuss in this article. Since RFID is limited to a short operation range, IoT approaches can be used to enhance the coverage distance and reliability of RFID-related operations. For example, an RFID reader can acquire readings, and send them to cloud servers via the Internet with the help of IoT technologies. The Role of RFID in IoT RFID system consists of three main components, namely,

The 7 main components of the IoT ecosystem

Introduction of IoT Internet of Thigs (IoT) refers to a collection of interconnected things which are capable of sensing, actuating and communicating in a wide network with or without direct human intervention. They are also capable of acting according to changes in environment autonomously by triggering process and sharing this information in the network to process and generate valuable information regarding their environment. This is now a well-established rapidly growing technology with more 20 billion devices identified as IoT devices by 2025. Core concepts behind IoT are “smart objects” and “smart environments”. Smart object is a physical object that is equipped with a processor, data storage system, sensor system and network technology for communication. Some of these objects can affect their environment by means of actuators. Going with the same definition, a smart environment refers to the physical extent to which smart objects are deployed and interacting. Now having a
