Radio frequency identification, or R.F.I.D., refers to a variety of wireless technologies that create communication between a tag and a reader. R.F.I.D. can be used for long-range communication through ultra-high frequency, or U.H.F., tags or for very close communication using near field communication, or N.F.C., tags.
