Axcess Announces RFID-based Sensor Monitoring System

DALLAS -- Axcess International Inc., a leading provider of RFID and video surveillance systems for physical security and supply chain management, announced a complete sensor monitoring system using radio frequency identification tags at the Wireless Sensing Solutions Conference in Chicago. Battery-powered "active" RFID tags transmit data from a variety of portable detectors including temperature, motion, pressure as well as hazardous condition sensors such as radiation, chemical, and biological. The monitoring system, called OnlineSupervisor(TM) dynamically interprets the data and sends wireless alerts to enable rapid response. The system is ideally suited to the homeland defense and industrial monitoring industries. In a study commissioned by AXCESS with Venture Development Corporation, the active RFID sensor market is expected to grow to beyond $35 million by 2007.
