In today’s society, construction companies and contractors are using RFID technology efficiently. When it is used correctly many companies are learning it “utilizes all your resources effectively.”
An example would be the RFID active tags. These tags can be interfaced to sense systems to add further capability to the tags data function.
Wireless networks within a place, allows real-time location of vital mobile assets. This then allows people to find equipment immediately and also improves the utilization of your assets and reducing theft.
These tags also provide measurements of “physical parameters such as, temperature, shock and GPS tracking.” These sensors can be used on buildings, dams, bridges and tunnels to warn engineers of failure.
This saves the expenses of sending out safety inspectors to monitor these places.
