Furthermore, there are other technologies such as the RFID and the BEACON tags.
The RFID works through an antenna – fixed or mobile – and a tag, which communicate in radiofrequency. The tag is a chip that, pushed by an RFID reader, activates an exchange of data.
The Beacon allows the automatic asset mapping within a limited area. Unlike the NFC Tag, it sends signals to all the devices in its range of action.
These two technologies can be useful for different purposes both in Logistics and in Manufacturing. In fact, except for Geolocation, these can be used for asset Tracking and Traceability, for the Picking, and many more reasons.
