NIST scopes RFID/wireless challenges to foster adoption

The standards organization seeks to help U.S. car makers adopt new technology for competitiveness.


National Institute of Standards and Technology ( NIST ) reports completion USCAR , a consortium of the three major American automakers, seeks to help U.S. car makers adopt new technology that will heighten competitiveness.
“The factory floor has a lot of reflective metal, making deployment of standard wireless systems like RFID for inventory and equipment control difficult,” says Kate Remley, NIST product leader of metrology. “Better understanding of what we don’t know about such environments can aid system designers of new wireless technology.”
A possible outcome is NIST developing prequalifying test methods. The prequalifications will enable the auto industry and other markets
