What is RFID?
Radio-Frequency IDentification, also known as RFID, is a marvelous technology that is being used for various purposes. RFID Wristbands are the best example of this technology and how it has changed our lives. These wristbands are usually comprised of common silicon strap having a tag and a reader chip inside it. There are multiple types of RFID Wristbands available in the market but only a few are mainly used in events such as musical concerts and food festivals.
How do they operate?
The RFID tags used in RFID bracelets usually do not require batteries to operate and thus, have the potential to operate for many years, or even decades. The tags having battery can be tracked from a distance of hundred meters. The RFID wristbands have gained popularity since they are easy to handle and can be operated for various tasks. They usually have 3 kilobytes storage which may seem less but is enough to store your name, address, date of birth and credit card information. The preference of what data to keep varies from local administrators to event managements.
Usage in EDMs
Their prevalence in EDM concerts is quite visible but they are yet to be used in all kinds of musical events. When managements were surveyed, more than 80% believed that acquiring more information regarding attendees via RFID wristband technology could be both helpful and impactful in future and a similar number preferred if the audience paid for drinks and food via their wristbands. Since this tech is not cheap, many organizers still hesitate in investing in this revolutionary product.
The availability of RFID wristbands at a concert proves to be convenient for both the attendees and the management for several reasons. This technology has greatly improved the ID processing and has also played a role in the elimination of ticket duplication. The staff does not have to check every ticket which saves the energy and time of participants and organizing team. The chips used in these wristbands could be used to track the location of any person wearing it enhancing the security arrangements. Common wristbands were already being used at events, and now these benefits are persuading organizers to have these modern wristbands. Moreover, RFID silicone wristbands are being used to pay for snacks and beverages you buy at the concert saving you from the need to carry extra cash and stuff in your bag, which is not only convenient for you but saves the management from possible mishaps during the event. As mentioned earlier, not only the event managements but vendors also prefer for the attendees to pay via RFID technology which makes use of digital currency.
Almost every breathing soul on this planet has access to social media which is used to communicate with friends and family and also helps us in connecting with our loved ones living abroad. Social media is now an integral part of our daily life and every new technology comes linked with such platforms. The case is pretty much similar here as RFID wristbands manufacturers are now focusing on integrating social media into their products.
Many festivals are allowing their participants to sync social media accounts on their advanced wristbands. This makes it possible for them to access multiple functions throughout the venue. These tremendous benefits of RFID wristbands justify the success of RFID wristbands for events.
Not only at events, RFID woven wristbands are also being extensively used in Public Transport, Commerce, Passports and at major institutions such as Hospitals, Clubs, and Libraries. We have a long way to get completely rid ourselves of paper tickets and real bills but as these RFID wristbands are being made available and accessible to general public, we expect a swift revolution in this area paving a way for a smarter future.
