In New Zealand, the not-for-profit NZ RFID Pathfinder group, plays a crucial role. They are a collective of independent industry experts exploring innovative RFID applications in sectors such as healthcare, manufacturing, agriculture, and transportation. The group was established in 2006 to educate the NZ market on RFID about the opportunities RFID might offer NZ business. Given the explosion of RFID use globally (a predicted 88 billion tags will be used in 2026), Pathfinder’s role has evolved to provide neutral advice on RFID implementation in New Zealand.
The group has installed an RFID Demonstrator at GS1’s Auckland office that is open to anyone interested in trying RFID to discover what opportunities might be uncovered.
