The RAIN RFID Alliance Workgroups collaborate to develop open, freely implementable specifications to accelerate the acceptance and deployment of RAIN RFID technology within the global marketplace
They help the RAIN RFID ecosystem understand what they need and provide a contact point for the broader community to make requests or ask questions. They may produce specifications or determine how to use existing standards to resolve problems.
Each workgroup has a Chair and Vice-Chair who manage the workgroup’s direction. Some workgroups have an Executive Sponsor to help guide the direction. Most RAIN Alliance member companies have provided volunteers for the workgroups. Each workgroup has created a charter that describes the mission, vision, scope, values, and projects for the workgroup’s activities. It is common for the Executive Sponsors to represent end-users who are members of the Alliance.
