There is a need within radio-frequency identification (RFID) and other smart techlogies to understand related practical implications. Auto-Identification and Ubiquitous Computing Applications: RFID and Smart Techlogies for Information Convergence reports on problems related to the primary use of RFID techlogies. This book provides a detailed overview of current literature, specifically in using RFID and smart techlogies for identification, and draws together several different fields of research across supply chain management, asset tracking, and vel use of RFID.
