13.56 MHz Smart Labels Used for Access Control, Attendance, Asset Management and Cashless Purchases
NEW ORLEANS, LA (September 15, 2003) – The Enterprise Charter School in Buffalo, New York, founded in 2002 with an innovative interdisciplinary approach to learning, is applying that same philosophy to managing their human resources and physical assets. The public school’s more than 450 staff and students in grades K-8 are using a new identification card for access control and time and attendance that incorporates 13.56 MHz contactless radio frequency identification (RFID) technology from Texas Instruments Radio Frequency Identification (TI-RFid™) Systems. The school will use TI-RFid 13.56 MHz smart labels to identify and secure assets such as library books, laptop computers and other items. Students will also be able to make selected purchases in the cafeteria using their identification cards.
