RFID Track, Trace and Find

Project overview

The Centre for Technology Infusion is collaborating with Newport Digital Technologies Australia (NDTA) and the Victorian Centre for Advanced Materials Manufacturing (VCAMM) to utilize Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to track perishable consumer goods in transit. 

A RFID tag that constantly monitors temperature and global position will revolutionize the transport of fragile consumer products that need to be kept chilled and ‘fresh’ such as food including meat, dairy, fruit and vegetables and medical products such as blood, organs and tissue.

NDTA has a specific interest in radio technologies that focus on RFID applications and has initiated a major Super High Frequency (SHF) project, “smart-r-tag®” in conjunction with La Trobe University’s Centre for Technology Infusion and VCAMM.
