34Automatic identification data capture (AIDC) technologies are becoming increasingly important in the management of supply chain, manufacturing flow management, mobile asset tracking, inventory management, warehousing, and any application where physical items move through location on time. Tracking these items has historically been done by the use of bar-code technologies, which suffer from lack of efficiency, robustness, difficulty in automation, inability to have secure or dynamic data, etc., whereas the electronic technology of Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) has the ability to overcome several of these barcode limitations This paper presents a comparative basis for the creation of on AIDC infrastructure via RFID versus other technologies, such as barcode and sensor technologies.
