Kids Safer on Farms Thanks to RFID Technology
introduced by Prairie Tech Enterprises Ltd. The system has been developed to help farmers with large tractors, so that they will be alerted by an RFID sensor, if a child or animal is in the way of their tractor. The system originates from Western Canada and was introduced by three families living on farms. They named their company Prairie Tech after coming up with the concept of an RFID-based system for the safety of children and pets living on a farm. The project is known as “Where Abouts” and it has been made to diminish or at least reduce the hazards of large farming machinery on large farms.
