ABSTRACT
The article discusses the growth of Active Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), which incorporates many technologies, including Real Time Locating Systems, Ubiquitous Sensor Networks and Active RFID with Zigbee. Results of a study by IDTechEx reveals that this market is growing faster than other RFID tehnology sectors. It notes that Active RFID will increase to 26.3% in 2017 from 12.7% of the total market in 2008 and the cellular phone RFID modules will increase to $1.2 billion in 2017.
