After several years of development, networked RFID is moving beyond the early adopter phase as more and more industry sectors are using this technology for increasingly diverse applications. Two main technological advances have made this possible: the wider availability of very low-cost and higher-range passive RFID tags that require no battery to operate, and the use of the Internet to interconnect standalone RFID systems and software through robust fixed- and mobile-communication networks. This special issue presents some recent work in RFID middleware, services, overlaying, and the network edge.
