Mr Sven Dienelt presented the latest developments and the results of the GS1 workgroup and pilot RFID projects. There were worries about the number of transponders on a box, and the positioning, orientation and type of tags. The presentation revealed that transponders could be mounted vertically or horizontally but not at an angle. Successful identification by RFID very much depended on the products that were inside the boxes, for example water or metal were still a problem.
Mr Dienelt went on to explain that the maximum tolerance in the positioning of the tag was 10 mm, with a maximum label size of 110 mm.
