The future of RFID handheld terminals
Introduction: Automatic identification technology has grown along with the development of computers to assist computer recognition in a wide range of technical systems, and plays a significant role in the fields of warehousing, distribution, and delivery. With the development of automatic identification technology, a coexistence pattern of traditional identification technology represented by one-dimensional bar code and new identification technology represented by radio frequency identification (RFID) has been formed.
Automatic identification technology is growing together with the development of computers to assist in a wide range of computer identification technology systems, and plays a significant role in storage, distribution, and delivery. With the development of automatic identification technology, a coexistence pattern of traditional identification technology represented by one-dimensional bar code and new identification technology represented by radio frequency identification (RFID) has been formed. How to select the most suitable technologies for the company's development among these identification technologies is an important issue facing many companies today.
Barcode and RFID Development Prospects
Barcode technology and radio frequency identification technology have their own characteristics. For now, although there are many shortcomings in bar code technology, low cost is one of the main reasons why it is still widely used. Although RFID technology has made up for many deficiencies of bar code technology, it is difficult to be implemented on a large scale due to the high cost and immature technology. To choose between the two, the first requirement is to have a clear understanding of their respective characteristics.
From the point of view of developing trends, RFID is a new recognition skill that can replace bar codes. In some occupations and some fields in the world today, traditional barcodes have gradually been replaced or replaced by RFID. Advanced skills have been continuously developed and improved, however. Before the bar code skills, usage needs and space for development, and RFID have not yet fully matured, whether in the micro-market environment or the microscopic single company environment, the needs of the two have been developed through a period of time. The length of this period depends on the company's needs and internal and external environment and other factors.
Regarding bar code skills, one-dimensional barcodes will occupy the main stream of automatically identified skills within a very long period of time. However, due to the large information capacity, confidentiality and anti-counterfeiting performance, the two-dimensional bar code has a low-level feature and is particularly suitable for Chinese companies’ computer software. The actual situation of hardware construction cannot be improved, the cost pressure is high, and there is a very wide use perspective. The promotion of the use of two-dimensional bar code skills in China will certainly bring considerable social and economic benefits to the development of China's information industry and modern economic construction. In addition, out of cost considerations, even if new identification skills, such as RFID, will dominate the market in the future, bar code skills will still have a considerable market demand.
Based on the above analysis can be seen. The one-dimensional and two-dimensional bar code skills still have a lot of room for use in domestic companies, especially two-dimensional bar codes, and the incomparable advantages of many other identification skills will make it infinitely useful even if the skills are still used. Develop potential. For the company, the most important thing is to understand its own characteristics and carry out the request, starting from the actual situation, according to the needs of the use of the environment to choose. As long as they are “adapted to the circumstances,” RFID and barcodes will complement each other and develop harmoniously.
