Tego unveiled its TegoDrive software designed to simplify information stored RFID. Installed on a handheld RFID device or an end-user’s desktop connected to a fixed reader, TegoDrive enables adding new content to a tag with a simple drag-and-drop interface.
RFID tags are represented as folders on the desktop and files in the folder correspond to data stored on the tag in user memory. Users are able to store and retrieve their own data, regardless of the format it is in, and to access tags using standard operating system commands already familiar to them.
Currently in beta testing across multiple industries, TegoDrive is a standards-based solution that works with both low- and high-memory RFID tags. The user experience is identical to current practices like dragging data between applications or saving files to a new location.
TegoDrive technology provides users with additional features including an auditable history of changes to tag data, plus the ability to resurrect the information as it existed on a defined date or time. Encryption and authentication of sensitive data are also utilized to prevent cloning of tags or counterfeiting of data or author.
