Efforts to avoid friendly fire spawned ancestor of todays RFID

British soldiers seeking ways to identify friendly aircraft in World War II were given a newly developed radar transponder system called IFF - Identification Friend or Foe. It was a crude system, but it was a way to tap into technology to identify something at a distance. Fast forward 65 years, and you'll find researchers working on today's version of remote identific......

An engineer named Harry Stockman first theorized the modern RFID transponder system in a 1948 essay, "Communication by Means of Reflected Power." Stockman conceded, how......

This was also initially explored the 1970s by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey but, like other RFID solutions, it did not come into widespread use until many years later. Norway was first out the gate in the late 1980s, with American roads not far behind. The early 1990s saw the introduction of toll roads in Oklahoma and other ......

By incorporating such network mainstays as DNS-like protocols into chips, each item would have a unique identifier making it possible to track.

Waiting for the five-cent chip

Ironically, the change in philosophy t......
