Anura Rathnayake and Pasindu Lugoda have been working on our patented technology for incorporating RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chips in yarn. RFIDs are used in the same way as bar codes and are widely employed to tag and track products. Incorporating the RFIDs in yarns and fabrics offers a number of advantages, especially in anti-counterfeiting, as the tag cannot be removed without destroying the resultant garment. The picture shows a yarn with integrated RFID wound on a cylinder, an RFID reader and a mobile phone that displays the RFID code.
