    “Halloween Horror Nights” Haunted Houses Becomes More Interactive with RFID 


    This year, Universal Studios Florida theme park’s annual haunted houses—Halloween Horror Nights—will use RFID technology to create a whole new experience for visitors seeking for excitement.

    Initially, the experience consisted of walking past “Scareactors” and spooky props inside haunted houses, but during the past few years, the theme park introduced an Internet-based aspect of the event, known as Horror Unearthed, in which players could face online challenges and earn reward points.

    Last year, the Internet-based game was linked to the physical event at the theme park via passive UHF RFID tags and readers.

    Users created an ID and password on the Horror Unearthed Web site. Upon visiting the park, each player could then acquire an RFID-enabled tag linked to the ID. Readers stationed around the park interrogated that tag as the visitor accomplished specific missions, such as making his or her way through a haunted house or finding a specific character using a mobile reader, and the points earned were then added to that individual’s account.

    The RFID features drew such a favorable response that it is again being offered this year.

    China’s RFID Card Market to Double to $807 Million in 2017 


    China’s RFID card market will nearly double in value and more than double in units in 2017, as government focuses on the futuristic Internet of Things — embedding connectivity and intelligence in everyday objects — and private sector grows, according to Lux Research.

    The RFID card/tag market will grow from 894 million units in 2012 to 2.11 billion, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19%. In revenue terms, the market will grow to $807 million in 2017, from $454 million in 2012, at a CAGR of 12%.

    “So far, government applications account for 22% of the volume and 34% of the revenue, but that is about to change quickly,” said Richard Jun Li, Director of Lux Research.

    “With the rise of market-driven applications, there are opportunities for multinationals to leverage China’s RFID growth — speed and identification of the best local partnerships will be critical,” he added.

    Here are some of the findings by Lux Research analysts:

    ■Consumer market is the strongest. Driven mainly by the adoption of RFID tags for anti-counterfeiting, consumer applications will grow the fastest in volume terms — at a CAGR of 38% until 2017. Industrial applications will grow at a 25% rate, while electronic toll collection will be a fast-growing subsector.

    ■Local OEM players emerging. The rise of Chinese original equipment manufacturer (OEM) suppliers for RFID cards/tags is creating a new industry dynamic. Currently, the top 15 suppliers account for 57% of the Chinese market and are poised for further gains.

    ■Focus is on fast-growing UHF market. Chinese companies do not have as strong a position in superior UHF chips — which will grow dramatically to become a $236 million market in 2017. However, the clock is ticking for multinational suppliers, as the Chinese government is putting significant resources into developing homemade UHF chips.

    Norwegian Company Uses RFID to Track Logistics 

    Norwegian-Recycler-track-logistics-recyclable-materials-RFID-blogNorsk Resirk is a non-profit Norwegian company that processes discarded plastic bottles and aluminum cans. It has completed the first phase of a plan to utilize UHF RFID tags and readers to improve its management of recyclable materials.

    Initially, the firm is reading RFID labels attached to plastic bags containing the recyclables at one of its plants. Now, the company has a long-term goal: to have the tags read by bottle- and can-collection sites at the point at which the bags are filled, interrogated again by truck drivers transporting those bags, and finally read a third time at all three of Norsk Resirk’s plants.

    In that way, the company will be able to know when and where empty bottles and cans are picked up and delivered, in addition to who may be responsible if the recyclables fail to reach their destination.

    By reading RFID tags on those sacks as they arrive at the plant, the firm saves thousands of dollars by better knowing how many bags were received, and from whom, and then paying users accordingly.

    Norsk Resirk’s logistics and operations controller, Martin Ludvigsen says, in the future, when Norsk Resirk installs RFID readers at all three plants, more data will be available to identify instances of incorrect goods deliveries. “This is important,” he explains, “because when bags are delivered to the wrong channel, they go right into the production facilities, and the articles will not be counted, leaving the deposit point (DP) without a correct payment.”

    Besides, having the data, Norsk Resirk will also be able to conduct business analytics, such as comparing how bags of recyclable bottles and cans were received from which locations.

    Ludvigsen predicts that the RFID solution—once it is installed at all three of its plants, as well as at the DPs—will save the company tens of millions of Norwegian kroner (about six kroner equals one U.S. dollar).”A single plant installation saves money in the chain of logistics regarding its area,” he notes, “but we need to install the solution at all plants and DPs to close any possibility of losing bags in any area.”

    UHF RFID Adopted in Grand Rapids Library to Improve Efficiency 

    Grand-Rapids-Library-UHF-rfid-blogAfter years of research and development, Grand Rapids Public Library has launched an RFID system this month, enabling it to speed up checkout, track check-in, provide security and manage inventory. The Michigan library believes it is the first public system to adopt UHF RFID in North America.

    Aiming at reducing labor costs and improving efficiency, the library installed a more expansive RFID system at all of its 8 branches. The technology consists of fixed and handheld readers, tags on all media, and software designed by the library’s IT department to manage RFID read data and integrate it with the existing library-management system.

    In the world, HF passive tags are employed if the library has implemented RFID technology. However, since HF tags have a short read range, libraries require a separate security system to track media leaving through the exit, or they must install a large antenna array specifically designed to read HF tags passing through a portal.

    By deploying UHF, a library can have a faster and efficient system, which takes up less space and costs less. With the new system in place, now a pile of books can be read simultaneously. Besides, employees now can use a handheld reader or a portable interrogator on a wheeled cart to locate or count the inventory books in stacks.

    Users only need to place the entire stack of books or other materials on the counter above the reader. Since UHF tags have a considerably longer read range than HF tags, the device can capture the ID numbers of multiple items in a single stack without need to be in proximity.

    If a patron is unable to find a book, he/she can request help from the staff. Workers could then utilize one of the handhelds to look up the book’s location in the Evergreen software. If the book is found not to be where the software indicates it should be located, employees can use the handheld’s Geiger-counter mode to walk through the stacks and pinpoint it.

    RFID in Helping Raise Funds for Breast Cancer 

    event-raise-fund-RFID-blogSusan G. Komen for the Cure is a non-profit organization focused on eliminating breast cancer. For the past few years, the organization has been holding three-day, 60-mile walks, which intend to raise funds and awareness in the U.S. regarding breast cancer and early detection.

    This year, thousands of participants in the walks wear EPC Gen 2 RFID tags that link to their Facebook pages, to share their progress during the events with friends and family members about their progress.

    To date, the RFID-based solution, provided by cloud-centric technology company Qnectus, has been deployed for the three-day walks in Boston, Cleveland, Chicago and the greater Detroit area.

    The solution consists of several stations. Each one includes a laptop, a durable, weather-resistant RFID reader and antennas. As walkers pass by, each station reads tags and transmits the tag IDs to a cloud-based server, via a cellular 4G connection, where data is linked to Facebook. Every station is also equipped with a GPS module, to provide a real-time view into that station’s location and operability.

    When participants arrive at the event, they will receive an Alien Technology ALN-9640 Squiggle ultrahigh-frequency EPC Gen 2 UHF RFID tag, adhered to a graphic-printed card and protected by a damp-proofing plastic cover. The cover is attached to a lanyard that can be hung around that person’s neck. “This gave us a clear line of sight to the tag from the tripod antennas,” Dustin Sterkenburg, Qnectus’ VP of engineering, states, “and a fantastic read rate on the Threshold antennas placed under protective mats on the ground.”

    Reader antennas are located at the starting and finishing lines. Simply passes over the antennas, and the participant can trigger a posting on his/her Facebook site, announcing that person’s participation in the walk and its efforts to support breast cancer survivors in finding a cure, such as sending a message like “Today I start my 60-mile journey! Three days! Making an impact in the fight to end breast cancer.”

    Although the system is currently being used only for linking participants to their Facebook pages, Qnectus’ software enables users to view the number of participants passing the start and finish points, as well as when this occurs, based on the location and time of each RFID read.

    The solution is designed to be highly mobile. Stations are packed in durable Pelican cases. A company known as Event 360 runs the three-day events. Its staff can set up an RFID reader infrastructure within a few hours, and then remove and reinstall the system daily during the fundraiser.
