RAIN RFID Technology

RACE RESULT is part of global alliance

Developing the world’s most innovative timing systems, RACE RESULT engineers always need to stay ahead of the developments in the industry. Being part of a network helps to get in touch with technology partners, suppliers and masterminds from all over the world. RAIN is the global alliance for the wireless UHF RFID technology which is used in the race|result passive system and decoders. Tags, readers and software applications must be matched up during product development.

Nikias Klohr, Head of R&D at RACE RESULT, spoke at the “RAIN RFID Alliance – Europe Meeting” in Vienna in June. He explained how the company developed an application specific solution for RAIN RFID in sports timing.

Outside of sports timekeeping RAIN RFID technology is used to connect billions of everyday items to the internet, enabling businesses and consumers to identify, locate, authenticate, and engage each item.

He spoke again at the “RFID tomorrow” conference in Frankfurt a few weeks ago. One year before at the same event, the idea was born to create the first sport specific UHF RFID Transponder. Now Klohr could report on its development and the series production which started in September.
