The article focuses on the use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) active tag technology in the process facility in Great Britain. The technology provides solution in terms of total read reliability in which its powerful microprocessor include functions like temperature measurement, motion detection, and emergency call button. It states that active tags at predetermined intervals, can transmit data up to 200 metres line of sight to a receiver.
