Re-capping a banner week for RFID technology; Item Level RFID Initiative grabs the spotlight

Last week saw a series of high-impact events for the RFID industry. The week began with the unveiling of the Item Level RFID Initiative, an alliance between major retailers, manufacturers and associations. The goal is to start moving together as a group toward major item-level deployments in the retail sector.

The alliance includes Wal-Mart, Kohls, Macy’s, JC Penney, Dillards and others, and should provide item-level tagging with the shot in the arm it needs to become ubiquitous in retail sooner than later. (See RFID 24-7’s coverage of the announcement here.)

The announcement was the talk of the town in Chicago, where Pack Expo and the AIM Expo were held. The AIM event was well organized, well received by exhibitors, and showed promise for the future. It’s an event the auto-ID industry needs.  As AIM broke, RFID vendor Mojix announced it has completed successful tests of its STAR system at German retailer METRO. Breakthrough levels of read rate performance for passive RFID tags were achieved across multiple use cases including RFID-tagged fast moving goods and item-level tagged apparel.

And let’s not forget the incredibly cool use case that Vail Resorts has built for RFID, combined with social media tools. The technology debuted last week.

The fun doesn’t stop there. In what is usually a slow month leading up to Thanksgiving, RFID 24-7 will report on major news out of the high-memory RFID sector tomorrow. Another major announcement is on tap for next week, this one regarding a ground-breaking solution for the perishable foods industry. Stay tuned!
