New technologies usually become more broadly adopted as multiple suppliers adopt the technology and provide interoperability. Standards efforts help to define common requirements into a specification for suppliers to follow in their technology development programs. Today, industries such as warehouses, airlines and others employ radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology for increased productivity. The use of RFID […]

Some of the technologies making the Internet of Things (IoT) possible include WirelessHART, radio-frequency identification (RFID), near field communication, barcodes, QR codes and digital watermarking. I mention this because many process operations require material movements via truck, rail, ship and other discrete forms of transportation. The operations to track these movements have historically been done […]
