Journal Article Published

I recently worked with Sidney D'Mello, Lee McCauley, and James Markham to publish some of the research we did at the FedEx Institute of Technology.  We studied the characteristics of four commercially available RFID tags. Our aim was to evaluate the impact of position and orientation of RFID tags on simulated real time asset tracking in the supply chain.
As stated by the editors of the journal (JTAER) regarding our work, "This type of fine grained, empirical testing of RFID tag location offers valuable insight into the obstacles that confront firms seeking to implement RFID in the supply chain."
