rfid vs barcodes

Barcoding is a mature technology that has been around for many years, unlike RFID which is still in its infancy. Additionally, the components used to read and write bar codes have come down in price because of this maturity and sales volume. There are many additional issues to consider with RFID, such as those listed below in the Disadvantages of RFID section. However, all things considered, RFID has many advantages over barcoding. In some cases, these advantages outweigh the disadvantages and high cost of the components. Decision makers must carefully consider whether RFID really provides an advantage over barcoding in their business model.
