RFID technology may be hi-tech, but it is not rocket science. It does not take a PhD in
Physics or Telecommunications to implement RFID technology applications to your own
situation or business. All it takes is some knowledge about the RFID technology, to know
precisely what it can do (strengths) and what it cannot do (weaknesses). Hence the idea
of this Free Ebook, which you can easily download to your PC or laptop. This free Ebook is
an RFID application storybook, which has twenty five different RFID technology application
stories from around the globe. In this book you will find how ordinary people and
businesses have started benefiting from RFID technology.Password 'abhisam' Each RFID
technology application story is divided into different parts which give details about the
history and background information about the particular RFID technology application,
problems encountered , how an RFID technology based solution has solved the problem and
the future scenarios and trends. This Ebook is designed to not only offer you an
insight into how everyday people and businesses are using RFID technology to solve their
real world problems, but also to provoke you into coming up with your own RFID application
story. Instead of a regular printed book, we felt that an Ebook would be a better way, to
convey information about a technology that is too fast for the world of printed
books. You can study the RFID case studies and then apply RFID technology to YOUR own
business or profession. If it you do it in an interesting way, do let us know, we will
expand this book to also include your RFID application story. For those who prefer the
printed word, please print out a copy and read it anywhere you like. There are no
restrictions on printing at all. This Free Ebook does not have any complicated
technical jargon, equations, diagrams, graphs or charts. There are also no illustrations.
The book is designed to read more like a story book, which it is really.
