The Complete Active RFID Overview

Active RFID systems (otherwise known as active RTLS) use battery-powered sensor tags that connect to various access points throughout an area (like a building) and transfer data to the cloud.

Active RFID is commonly used for real-time location tracking. What makes the technology attractive for this use is:
  1. Low cost: When compared to alternatives like infrared, WiFi, and ultra wide-band (UWB), active RFID is the least expensive when it comes to overall system cost.
  2. High scalability: Active RFID systems easily scale due to the long read range—the technology can typically detect tags farther than 100 feet away. You could potentially cover 10,000 square feet of space with a single reader and a handful of reference points.
  3. Long battery life: Active RFID tags are known to have a battery life of roughly three to five years, with some types of tags lasting up to 10 years.

There are three different types of active RFID: beaconing RFID, transponding RFID, and intelligent RFID. Each of these types of active RFID are quite different from one another and lend themselves to different use cases. Take a look at each below to learn more about how they function, what they’re used for, and which one might be right for you.
