Speakers announced for active RFID conference

Thursday, 25 October, 2007

IDTechEx will stage the conference Active RFID and RTLS in Dallas, USA. The conference’s title emphasises the fast growing real-time locating systems (RTLS) used from hospitals to dockyards for locating people and assets.

An Australian speaker will talk about monitoring and controlling forest fires with RTLS and BP will describe locating people in three dimensions in its oil refineries for safety and evacuation. RTLS has been installed in about 100 hospitals in the US in the last year — this will be covered by Hospital Corporation of America.

Information Mediary Corporation of Canada describes how RFID monitors comply with medication instructions, saving lives and improving the integrity of data in drug trials, such as the US National Institutes of Health Azithromycin trial recently. The US Army present on supply chain and shelf life management such as recording temperature time profile.

Phase IV Engineering Systems reports on ‘How Wireless Mesh Networks are Enabling Sense and Respond Systems’. Green Peak of Belgium will discuss active RFID using ZigBee in hospitals and there is analysis of action activated printed sensors in Sweden.

Headline sponsor, RFTRAQ of the UK will speak about experience in installing and integrating active RFID and GPS/GPRS systems and solutions in the paper industry and elsewhere, achieving a level of accuracy and reliability of 99.98% over two years and unusually long ranges up to 400 m.

G2 Microsystems developed a chip that conquers the cost and power drain problems of RTLS based on pre-existing Wi-Fi. This company has relocated from Australia to the US and it will present its latest results.
