RFID Wearable Technology for the Internet of Things

14th July 2014


The exponential growth of smart, connected devices worldwide is setting the stage for a revolution. An ecosystem of devices and objects connected wirelessly to each other, known as the “Internet of Things” (IoT), is revolutionizing the way we work and go about our daily lives.

Driven by a desire for seamless, full-time connectivity among consumers and enterprises alike, the IoT is enabled by advancements in RFID wearable technology, cloud computing, auto ID technologies such as RFID, and initiatives supporting greater mobility. This burgeoning wireless machine to machine (M2M) connectivity offers significant improvements in business process efficiency, as well as revenue opportunities generated by an abundance of potential new products and services.

TSL’s wearable technology makes it easy to get plugged into the “Internet of Things” and leverage the benefits of this connected ecosystem of smart devices.


For example, the ruggedized 1128 Bluetooth® UHF RFID Reader and the 1153 Bluetooth® Wearable UHF RFID Reader are both designed to automatically communicate wirelessly with a variety of Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices, including enterprise handhelds, consumer phones, touchscreen MP3 players, tablets and PCs. Delivering the ultimate in mobility, these smart, wirelessly connected readers facilitate fast, accurate and efficient tracking of products, assets and data in such applications as retail, logistics, warehousing and distribution.


The new 1153 Bluetooth® Wearable UHF RFID Reader offers low power consumption, while still providing excellent performance in a small, convenient and portable form factor. And using a convenient wrist mount and belt holster accessory, the 1128 Bluetooth® UHF RFID Reader enables data to be captured and transmitted completely hands-free via automatic RFID scanning.

The IoT is transforming the way we view objects, as mobile devices and smart assets interact and communicate among themselves. RFID wearable technology from TSL allows you to harness the potential of this expanding ecosystem, and realize the promise of greater efficiency and opportunity made possible by mobile connectivity.
