RFIDs Tracking More Than Just Goods
from the tracking-everything dept
While most people talk about RFIDs in supermarkets for the ways in which they can track inventory, both in the back of the store and on the shelves, it’s important to realize that the technology can be used for many other kinds of tracking as well — including supermarket employees and customer shopping carts. This is where the technology reaches a bit more of a gray area that makes some people nervous. There isn’t really anything wrong with it, as long as those people who are being tracked are aware they’re being tracked, and the reasons for such tracking are made clear.
