comparison of barcode and rfid

Barcoding is a mature technology that has been around for many years, unlike RFID, which is still in its infancy. Additionally, the components used to read and write barcodes have decreased in cost because of this maturity and sales volume. There are many additional issues to consider with RFID, such as those listed below in the Disadvantages of RFID section. However, overall, RFID has many advantages over barcoding. In some cases, these advantages outweigh the disadvantages and high cost of the components. Decision makers must carefully consider whether RFID really provides an advantage over barcoding in their business model.
