RFID News

From:chafanViews:241Date:2020-06-10

In 2007, Hungerhill High School, Doncaster, UK, tried RFID chips sewn into students' blazers. Ten children tested the RFID for attendance. There were privacy concerns, and the trial was stopped.

West Cheshire College integrated active ultra wideband (UWB) RFID into their new college campuses in Chester in 2010, and Ellesmere Port in 2011, to tag students and assets using a real time location system (RTLS). Students wore the active RFID tags around their necks. West Cheshire College stopped RFID tagging students in February 2013. A series of Freedom of Information requests were sent to the college about the RFID tracking of students.Specifications of the active RFID at West Cheshire College:

· Ultra wideband RFID tags emit brief radio frequency signals across the entire 6.35 to 6.75 GHz frequency band.

· Average battery lifespan of a RFID tag is seven years.

· Receivers, which can receive tag signals up to 328 feet away, are located throughout the campus buildings, in order to ensure that the tags can be pinpointed regardless of where within the school a student might be.

· RFID tags provides accuracy to within 1 meter (3.3 feet).

· RFID Tag transmission rate of once per second.

· West Cheshire College uses RFID with a real time location system.

· The real time location system enables observation of student and staff in peer groups.
