New RFID Tag Has GPS

Read range is more than 500 meters.

A new tag by Identec, called a GPS tag, uses a satellite that can "isolate the specific location and movement of a an assets," according to the company.

With read/write range in excess of 500 meters, the tag can be activated at any time with a reader, thereby providing increased ease of access and reduced infrastructure.

This technology can be used for any type of asset or personnel tracking application and in particular for container and port transit.

"The Identec Solutions GPS Tag is a ground breaking solution so advanced that applications for the technology are virtually endless," says Peter Linke, executive vice president Sales and Marketing, Identec Solutions.
