RFID will track participants at breast cancer awareness event

RFID technology will play a key role in verifying participants when several thousand Florida residents seek to form the world’s largest human awareness ribbon in Polk City, Fla. on Saturday.

Upon arriving at the breast cancer awareness event, participants in the Big Pink Ribbon gathering will receive lanyards outfitted with UPM Belt™ UHF tags supplied by UPM RFID. As they enter the staging area for the event, large flat screens will keep a live count of the participants.

Organizers hope to attract 5,000 people which would shatter the Guinness World Record of 3,952 individuals for this category, which was set last year in Saudi Arabia. The RFID-certified results will be sent to the Guinness World Records for confirmation.

“It’s a very simple application but it’s a great way to introduce people to RFID technology and for the group to get an accurate count of the people involved,” says Dr. Ismail Uysal, associate professor in the College of Technology and Innovation at USF Polytechnic. “We saw the Big Pink Ribbon event as a great way to demonstrate the accuracy of RFID technology and introduce the community to the work we do at our RFID lab.”

USF Polytechnic prepared for the event by designing custom software with Borda Technology and testing RFID readers and RFID tags. Participants will pass under an entrance RFID reader portal with four downward-pointing antennas wired to a PC; the reader will capture participant data and transmit it to a custom asset tracking software program designed by USF Polytechnic and Borda Technology.

Jan Svoboda, Sales and Marketing Director, UPM RFID, says that the use case demonstrates that RFID technology can be used not only to streamline critical operational processes, but also to “deliver 100 percent accurate data on consumer participation in large-scale events, providing organizations with valuable insights into participant behavior.”
