The system has been implemented using programmable passive batteryless tags from Texas Instruments, whose UK distributor for TIRIS
is RFID Components of Kempston, Bedford.
The city enlisted Logistics System Engineering to integrate TIRIS
technology with Toter household waste bins and collection trucks to create an automated trash collection system that will hold residents responsible for the amount of solid waste they create.
technology is already being used in a number of additional applications other than the described automobile security system.
Texas Instruments has launched its own answer, TIRIS
Tag-it, which the company claims solves the problem of tracking and matching hold baggage.
