RFID is only one of numerous technologies grouped under the term Automatic IDentification (Auto ID), such as bar code, magnetic inks, optical character recognition, voice recognition, touch memory, smart cards and biometrics etc. Auto ID technologies are a new way of controlling information and material flow, especially suitable for large productions. This paper gives a review of the current state of the art in the Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology. This is short prologue to the standards of the engineering; a survey is given on real classes of RFID labels and readers.
