WHITE PAPER: How RFID can transform the rail industry

RFID is a proven technology in the railway industry. It has been adopted across the globe by numerous railway companies. In fact, there are certain regional legislations that require the use of RFID in certain applications. There are numerous benefits to adopting RFID, including asset management and real-time tracking, streamlining ticketing processes, tracking maintenance at an individual railcar level, and increased safety by monitoring the “health” of a particular railcar.

RFID is a versatile technology that can be used in a variety of ways to achieve many different results. In the rail industry, railcars can be tagged, but RFID can also be used at the rail station to automate ticketing and other functions, like portal/door access.
