||This project focuses on the development of commercial applications of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology in counterfeit prevention and physical asset management. These applications involve the tracking and manipulation of data carried by RFID tags. In the anti-counterfeit applications, a cost effective package will be developed for both manufacturers and retailers, which includes RFID readers and middleware for use in high-value-added products such as pharmaceutical products, garments and cosmetics. An RFID-enabled Point-of-Sale (POS) system supported by the EPC (Electronic Product Code) network will also be developed. The RFID technologies can also be used for tracking the mobile physical assets of companies. The data stored in the tag together with the appropriate sensors embedded in expensive equipment, machines, or other physical assets can be used for condition monitoring and fault prognosis.
