Radio-Frequency IDentification (RFID) is the use of a wireless non-contact system that uses radio-frequency electromagnetic fields to transfer data from a tag attached to an object, for the purposes of automatic identification and tracking. RFID offers a number of advantages over previous ID systems. For example, unlike barcodes, RFID tags don't require "Line of sight" to the tag reader, while barcode scanners need to directly "See" to read the barcode. Standard barcodes only identify the manufacturer and product, not unique items, and RFID allows for individual items to have a unique identifier and can identify many items at once. The authors presented a new novel approach for inference and compression over the RFID Stream.
