Cluster of European RFID projects contributes to European Research Agenda

10.08.2007
The 13 members of the Cluster of European RFID Projects - CERP were invited by the European Commission to provide a paper on RFID research needs for RFID which shall serve as an input to the 2nd call in the 7th Research Framework Programme.

At their meeting in Berlin the CERP partners decided that a powerful vision on RFID must be based on a strong focus on applications. According to the RFID Reference Model (download: www.rfid-in-action.eu/public/rfid-reference-model) developed within the EU-funded CE RFID project the CERP experts will concentrate on four RFID application fields which endorse great benefits for society and economics: Beside the well-established application areas logistics and manufacturing, CERP will also deal with product safety, i.e. food chain or anti- counterfeited pharmaceuticals. Finally, the experts evaluated the combination of RFID with smart card and mobile devices in application areas such as access control, payment and loyalty as most promising. At their next meeting on August 30-31 in Espoo, Finland the CERP partners will discuss the research tasks that are induced by the four application fields.

The paper will be presented at the European conference "On RFID: The next step towards the Internet of Things" in November in Lisbon. The preliminary CERP working paper "RFID Research Needs" is available online: www.rfid-in-action.eu/cerp.

CE RFID
CE RFID was launched in April 2006 by leading RFID user companies and vendors. Its main intent is to strengthen the European competitiveness of RFID in the context of the aims of the Lisbon strategy. Members of CE RFID are METRO Group, Siemens, ADT Fire & Security, Deutsche Post World Net, NXP, UPM Raflatac, Feig Electronic, RF-iT, AIDA Centre, Pleon, VDI/VDE-IT and EADS. CE RFID is a Coordination Action funded by the European Commission within the 6th Framework Programme. The coordinator of CE RFID, Dr. Gerd Wolfram, MGI METRO Group Information Technology GmbH is also chairman of CERP.

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...

Im Focus: New nanomaterial can extract hydrogen fuel from seawater

Hybrid material converts more sunlight and can weather seawater's harsh conditions

It's possible to produce hydrogen to power fuel cells by extracting the gas from seawater, but the electricity required to do it makes the process costly. UCF...

Im Focus: Small collisions make big impact on Mercury's thin atmosphere

Mercury, our smallest planetary neighbor, has very little to call an atmosphere, but it does have a strange weather pattern: morning micro-meteor showers.

Recent modeling along with previously published results from NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft -- short for Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry and...
