abstract

  • The RFID Oil & Gas Solution Group provides a research, study, and plot deployment services to help improve automation, identify and control equipment, assets, tools, and related processes used in the oil and gas and petrochemical industries. Asset tracking has been the most common problem among industries. But the use of RFID can provide the right product at the right place at the right time. The system is built around RFID tags, RFID readers, host computer, and software. The data are periodically sent by the tags through radio signal to the RFID readers. Roadmap are then developed so as to implement such RFID which will include RFID pilot projects followed by the development of RFID-enabled applications while integrating RFID data into existing applications.
