The Auto-ID Labs are the leading global network of academic research laboratories in the field of networked RFID. The labs comprise seven of the world's most renowned research universities located on four different continents. These institutions were chosen by the Auto-ID Center to architect the Internet of Things together with EPCglobal.
The Auto-ID Labs produce research results in the forms of (a) Auto-ID Labs White Papers, (b) academic publications, (c) demonstrators / pilots, (d) software packages such as simulation tools, (e) presentations at workshops, and (f) tacit knowledge within its research partners. During the Auto-ID Center years (1999-2003) we produced more than 110 Auto-ID Center research papers. They form the basis for today's EPC Network. The websites of the Auto-ID Labs and EPCglobal provide access to the Auto-ID Center papers.
As Auto-ID Labs (2004 to date) we have produced approximately 70 Auto-ID Lab White Papers. Some of them have already been published in well-known academic and management oriented journals and thus help to convey our thinking. All white papers can be accessed through the query interface at www.autoidlabs.org/publications/page.html

“RFID roadmap, next steps for Europe”
RFID is a key technology for Europe. Today we are witnessing a noticeable shift away from RFID pilot projects of the early days, towards a broad deployment of RFID in order to increase efficiency and innovation of processes. Even though Europe is a leading player in the world of RFID technology, several challenges need to be addressed in order for RFID to reach its full potential. To further the advancement of this technology, coordinated European efforts need to be promoted, especially in the areas of standardisation, user guidelines, legislation, technology development, and research and development.
These themes have been analysed by a network of European RFID technology providers, vendors and end users. The result of their work is summarised in this volume, giving recommendations for RFID stakeholders who wish to support the technology. By providing a comprehensive overview of state of play of RFID in Europe, this book is an indispensable read for decision makers in all areas of society who have to look into RFID.
The publication is a summary of the results of the coordination action CE RFID – Coordinating European Efforts in the RFID Value Chain – a network of European RFID technology providers, vendors and end users. It aims at promoting the use of RFID technology and supporting further development. The project was funded by the European Commission under the 6th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.
