Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an enhanced wireless recognition and data capturing solution designed to recognize, trace and recognize people, things, and animals using radio waves devices. Moreover, the RFID tags have an integrated circuit and an antenna for transmitting data to the RFID reader. An RFID tag received a signal from an RFID reader, and the tag responded with a signal holding information. Additionally, using a communications interface, the data gathered by readers from the RFID tags is forwarded to a host computer system where it can be kept in a database and analyzed later. RFID tags can also hold a variety of data, from a single serial number to many pages of information.
