Smartrac intros RFID tags for luggage, supply chain, automotive and industrial use
Smartrac has announced its new Wings tag, which offers a read distance of up to 18 meters (59 feet) and a compact footprint. The tag comes with NXP’s UCODE 8 IC, a new RFID tag designed for luggage tracking and also suitable for apparel and supply chain management applications.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA)’s Board of Governors mandated, in June 2018, that the IATA address passenger expectations for the real-time tracking of baggage. The first step was to develop a global development plan that would see IATA-standard RFID inlays in all baggage tags issued after Jan. 1, 2020.
