Radio frequency identification technology to prevent shoplifting
Thieves removing security tags from merchandise is a major problem for fashion retail stores. With radio frequency identification (RFID) technology increasingly being used in retail to improve inventory management, it may also be a powerful tool to prevent theft. Shopguard Systems Limited, which has significant experience in electronic article surveillance solutions, developed the RFID-based DetecTag solution that detects attempts to remove the tag from a product. The EU-funded DetecTag project will validate the DetecTag concept beyond its current customer base. The next step is the worldwide commercialisation of DetecTag.
