LONDON Printed organic RFID circuits are set to be used in a field trial at the Organic Electronics Conference (OEC-07) in Frankfurt, Germany (Sept. 24 to 26).
The circuits are the first printed low-cost organic tickets, according to Cintelliq Ltd. (Cambridge, England), organizer of the conference, and have been developed under the auspices of PRISMA, a collaborative research project on printed smart labels with European Union funding.
The tickets are set to be manufactured by printing company Bartsch GmbH and plastic electronics developer PolyIC GmbH & Co. KG (Fuerth, Germany).
During this first field trial, it is planned to use organic tickets to collect statistical data. Four reader stations developed by PolyIC and about 1,000 organic tickets converted by Bartsch are set to be used to monitor the flow of attendees during the two-day conference and exhibition. The field trial is expected to support the development of a wider range of printed RFID applications, in public transportation and logistics.
