RFID (radio frequency identification)
Radio frequency identification (RFID) technology uses radio waves to transfer data between a reader device and an item, such as clothing or a shipping container. The technology powers myriad applications, from luggage tagging at airports to highway toll collections.
Exxon Mobil uses RFID technology in its Speedpass payment system. Customers wave a small transponder in front of a sensor on a gas pump, debiting their account. Low-frequency RFID applications range from 3 KHz to 300 KHz; Speedpass operates at 134 KHz. High-frequency RFID systems operate between 3 MHz and 30 MHz - many at 13.56 MHz, a frequency reserved for low-power industrial applications.
