Novel uses of RFID & Sensors for Healthcare, Hospitals and Hospices

All very much in the news today. But how does RAIN RFID and other complimentary sensors make the lives of our healthcare workers more efficient? How do these technologies help our older family members as they age? How do other sensors compliment these systems to make RFID even more powerful? Its not just about tracking any more!

This webinar will be helpful for those who work in or are adjacent to these critical industries, those that service them or who provide solutions into them.

RFID isn't really dumb, but it needs to be a hell of a lot smarter

RFID implementations consistently run into challenges. It reads too far, doesn't read far enough, it doesn't read quick enough, it isn't smart enough to make quick decisions, can't read in this location, don't want it to read over here, that darn potato is absorbing all that RF. This 30-minute webinar will look at the tools (such as sensors) available to improve RFID implementations without all the usual brute-force approaches. How do we work smarter, not harder and result in lower cost implementations that really do solve the customers challenges.

This will be educational but fun and our goal is inform you so you can make better decisions about RFID implementations.

SPOOKY - Passive RFID Sensor Tags - Mini-Webinar

Passive Sensor tags? Is that even possible? No batteries? As Einstein said "spooky action at a distance". We will not be entangling your brain...quite the opposite. We will break through the spooky hype and discuss temperature and moisture sensing RFID tags, how to read them, how to add location awareness, what you need to accomplish this, what to look out for and the types of applications these are useful for.

Sessions and Selects Demystified - Mini-Webinar

Have you ever wondered what "Sessions" are? What is the "Select" flag? Why is this important to understand? How can you use this knowledge?

RAIN (Passive) RFID is swamped with terms, nuances and subtle but important technical capabilities. This "webinar-in-brief" will cut through the complexities and jargon. It will be a concise but extremely informative look at Selects and Sessions and the practical realities of what these can do for you and how these can dramatically effect your read results.

If you have ever been worried about "getting your head around" these terms, understanding what these actually do, or just grown a bit rusty, this is the webinar for you.

Antenna Selection for Real-World Applications - Webinar

This webinar explores how to use multiple antenna for area coverage, the different geometries when installing them and the positives and negatives of each. We will examine the advantages of having any tag visible by more than one antenna, and show how this can be achieved cost effectively (all the way up to 4 read-points per tag). The webinar will also take a look at the impact of antenna gain, ceiling height and reader power and introduce a tool to simplify the calculations for your unique situation.

SUMMARY: Learn how to pick the right antenna for your application!
