Radio frequency identification (RFID)
Technology for better products and services
You are in a desperate hurry, the queue is long and the sales assistant at the check-out has
to scan hundreds of items before it's your turn. But situations such as these may soon be
a thing of the past. In order to check out your groceries, you will simply wheel your
trolley through a special gate. A reader and a computer will add up your purchases and
the supermarket will debit your bank account. Off you go to your appointment, having
saved 30 minutes – thanks to radio frequency identification (RFID)!
