AIDC Technology Delivered by Capturity

AIDC is an acronym for automatic identification and data capture. This refers to technologies like RFID and barcode that automatically identifies items, collects their data, and enters that data directly into software systems.

To determine the AIDC technology that will best serve your organization, it’s helpful to understand each of the available technologies.


  • Because visibility is not required, RFID-tagged items can be tracked with near perfect accuracy using a portal that consists of an RFID reader and antennas. The RFID tags are read as they approach the portal – without human intervention, thus decreasing costs.

    • Active RFID tags contain their own power source, enabling items to be read up to 100 meters away.
    • Passive RFID tags receive their power from the electromagnetic energy transmitted by the RFID reader. Therefore, the read range is shorter – up to 25 meters.
  • In some ways, NFC addresses the limitations of HF-RFID and vice versa. But one is not better than the other. It’s simply a matter of determining which technology has the right features for the intended use.
