RFID significantly enhances the quantity of information flow by overcoming the limitations of traditional manual data-collection methods. It can be used as a complementary application or a replacement to the barcode system. Since radio waves are penetrable through cartons and packaging, multiple data-retrieval can be achieved even when none of the tags are within sight. RFID tags can often survive harsh environments such as extreme temperatures, high moisture levels, and rough physical handling which often destroy barcode labels.

Advantages of RFID over Barcode

  1. It allows information to be read by radio waves from a tag without requiring line-of sight scanning
  2. cannot be photocopied
  3. works on any surface (round, rectangular, etc)
  4. facilitates less human involvement in scanning processes
  5. It allows virtually simultaneous and instantaneous reading of multiple tags tagged item in the vicinity of the reader (40+ items per scan)
  6. information can be stored onto tags as tag can have a unique code that ultimately allows every tagged item to be individually accounted for
