    About the Benchmark

    The European RFID Reader Benchmark(TM) compares performance of the seven
leading ETSI-compliant ultra high frequency (UHF) RFID readers in both a
controlled laboratory setting and real world settings. The report is the first
handbook to guide European end users in how to evaluate and select readers for
their RFID programme. ODIN technologies does not manufacture RFID readers,
tags or printers, and the company maintains strict independence in testing all
RFID gear, therefore the report provides critical insight unavailable to end
users any place else. The benchmark was developed to provide end users with
objective insight into the RFID reader performance from a European
perspective. It is complementary to previous ODIN reader benchmarks relating
to readers designed for operations in the United States and provides the first
scientific evaluation of European readers. Following ODIN's recent
announcement of a five year contract with Airbus, this publication also
reflects ODIN's growing European capabilities and focus.
