New tracking technology from Austria wins "Living Standards Award"

15 February 2017

The "Living Standards Award" is an annual prize granted by the Austrian Standards Institute in Vienna to organisations and companies that improve the use, implementation and development of standards. The winner of the 2017 award is “REFlex – RFID Real-Time Localization for flexible Production Environments”.

With billions of deployed units, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags dominate the item identification market. ReFLEX - an international project led by Holger Arthaber from the Technical University of Vienna - investigates a new approach of measuring the distance between RFID reader and tag which also allows determining the position of these low priced tags. 

The novel method is expected to revolutionise many fields inclduing inventory management, production monitoring and car identification at tolls.
