Standardising the deployment of RFID in automotive

11 Feb 2020

As part of the drive to digitalisation, the use of auto-ID technologies such as RFID is increasingly being included as one of the requirements in RFQs sent to suppliers. We all know, of course, that there can be no effective digitalisation without standardisation and the challenge is to ensure interoperable deployment of RFID (and other auto-ID technologies) in order to maximise cost savings and efficiency. 
 Odette has therefore brought together a group of auto-ID experts from European OEMs and Tier1s to try find a way of avoiding multiple heterogeneous implementations of RFID across the automotive supply chain. The first meeting of the group took place on 12 Feb in Stuttgart.
