RFID (Radio-frequency identification)
Radio-frequency identification (RFID) uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects. The tags contain electronically stored information. Passive tags collect energy from a nearby RFID reader's interrogating radio waves. Active tags have a local power source such as a battery and may operate at hundreds of meters from the RFID reader. RFID can be used at South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), Skyway Elevated & AT-GRADE, NAIA Expressway and Cavitex.
