)-- James Gerdeman has used his hands on approach to the technology to provide the reader with samples and examples of how the industry has implemented RFID. The reader is offered both a narrative and pictorial view of this fascinating technology. His lessons learned which he calls “Gotcha’s” alone is worth the cover price. It is really a story of cows to cars says James as he explains the use of initial prototypes for tracking cows in fields to now allowing automobiles to speed pass electronic toll facilities. Of course the railroads brought the system to the industrial reality and intermodal quickly followed. Truckers have used the technology to speed passed weigh stations all the while having their credentials and safety records checked. Gated communities, airports and private fleets are using the technology to improve operations. This brings green to a point that can make even the most skeptical crack a smile. The publication of RFID Changing Lives is in conjunction with Lulu, the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.
James Gerdeman wrote RFID Changing Lives as a project to show the implementation and progress made since his first book Radio Frequency Identification Application 2000. At IBM he developed leading edge applications and worked with IBM Research for developing a paper thin tag. Fleet management and gated community systems were targets of a business he owned. He developed JBUS hands free retrieval for trucks. He made improvements in electronic toll systems which improved performance over vendor’s own approach. Managed technicians across 24 states for unique weigh scale and credentialing system saving fuel and time, a first green application. Jim managed a three party maintenance program for a unique electronic toll system using RFID. www.JDGerdeman.com
