Executive Summary

The new paradigm known as "Pervasive computing" or "Ubiquitous computing" refers to a new development in the field of information and communication technology. During this development more and more everyday objects will be equipped with microelectronics. Such "Intelligent" or "Smart" objects will influence almost all areas of one's daily lives. Computers will do their work invisibly in the background. One essential part of the development track in the paradigm of pervasive computing is comprised by digital automatic identification systems (auto-ID systems), which are expected to replace barcode and Optical Character Recognition. Auto-ID technology is designed to provide information about objects (persons, animals, merchandise).
