The latest development in radio frequency identification (RFID) technology from the Cambridge, England-based Auto-ID Center, as of October 2002 is discussed in the article. The center is focusing on several key aspects. These are the unique identification of an item through the electronic product code, getting the electronic product code (EPC) from the item on to the computer, determination of what the unique code means, and using the information. To date, a structure has been defined for the EPC and it has been used in a field test in the U.S. with the Gilette company, which started in October 2001. The technology looks set to replace bar codes and will be happening in the near future because the tags and readers will be offered at affordable rates.
