RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. An RFID device serves the same purpose as a barcode or a magnetic strip on the back of a credit card. It uses radio frequency waves to wirelessly transfer data between itself and a RFID label or a tag attached to an object in order to identify, read and track an asset.Who invented the RFID technologies?
RFID was, however, officially invented in 1983 by Charles Walton when he filed the first patent with the word 'RFID'. NFC started making the headlines in 2002 and has since then continued to develop. However, the technology was not adopted that quickly, in retail in particular.
