A Brief History of RFID Technology

March 9, 2012 § Leave a comment

RFID technology originates from World War 2 radar systems. The British came up with a system of placing a transmitter on their planes and the people in the radar stations on the ground were able to tell their planes apart from the enemy planes. The first proper RFID was made in the 1970’s. It was a device that had a radio transponder and contained 16 bit memory.
