Miroslav Savić (2011) Design of RFID data logger applications to be used in a supply chain. EngD thesis.
Traceability is of great importance, as in the supply chain as well in other activities. Allows you to obtain information on travel routes in the chain. Thus, by improving the business and also to eliminate any errors that may occur. Currently, bar code is mainly used for this purpose, but there are already other options that can be applied. Radio-frequency identification (RFID) is currently the largest alternative to bar code, it allows a lot of improvements in various application areas. This thesis introduces the technology of RFID and its applications in the supply chain. An important component is the RFID data logger (in short, logger) which records the temperature. RFID technology may allow a very good traceability of the product. Additionally, the logger offers monitoring of temperature during storage and transportation of perishable products. I have developed applications that allow the use of loggers functions with fixed and mobile reader, which allows working in the field. I have performed some tests to review the operation of loggers and readers. The biggest problem is still incomplete compatibility between the logger and the mobile reader. I solved this problem and adapt my applications accordingly to the available possibilities. Given that the RFID technology is still developing, I believe that with the enforcement of various standards compatibility will improve.
