Magellan's vice president of business development Ken Laing demonstrated each of 100 tags packed together like business cards being uniquely identified in a few seconds when passed through the reader.
"There has been a lot of talk about companies 'trialling' RFID technology this year, but our systems are being used in production today," Laing said. "For example, a jewelry store in the U.S.is using Stack Tag to quickly account for their diamonds. We also have a number of proof-of-concept projects in the medical industry for tracking syringes, tablets and blood bags."
Locally, Magellan is working with Infineon and sees document management as one of the potential applications over the next three months.
