DOST eyes RFID tech for disaster prevention

Expect radio frequency ID (RFID) technology to play bigger roles in disaster mitigation and several other aspects of Filipinos' lives, the Department of Science and Technology said. DOST Information and Communications Technology Office (ICTO) Executive Director Louis Napoleon Casambre said RFID will be at the heart of smart sensors the DOST is developing to monitor weather and geological conditions, as well as other aspects of its "Smarter Philippines" program. “We believe that the RFID technology can complement the DOST’s Smarter Philippines program, the essence of which is the effective generation, gathering, and analysis of data to enable timely and effective decision making and planning,” Casambre said at the 2013 RFID Technology Awareness Workshop held at the ICTO-National Computer Center Building in Diliman, Quezon City .
