I have posted a new article on my channel. It's "The Evolution of RFID System Architectures and the Development of Pervasive Computing" by Michael S. Shiff.
This is a very thoughtful piece about the evolution of RFID and how the centralized versus decentralized question frames up for RFID architectures. It starts "Although people currently think in terms of â€śRFâ€ť (radio frequency) tags that â€śIDâ€ť (identify) and track products and other assets through supply chains, RFID tags will eventually be thought of as very small computers that happen to have a built-in wireless networking capability. In other words, it is only a matter of time until virtually every item with a RFID tag can become a programmable/intelligent node on a private extranet, a private intranet, or the public Internet. What this means is that RFID tags are on a path to becoming the basic building blocks and the volume driver of pervasive computing."
The rest can be found on my channel .
