Researchers embed RFID in fibre composites

A team of researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Nuremburg has found a way to embed antennas capable of transmitting radio waves in fibre composites. The technology, which also works with carbon and glass fibres, enables the components to turn into intelligent objects. It is barely visible to the naked eye: the work pieces in the production hall look normal. But the first impression is deceiving. The airplane components are "intelligent" and can communicate with the skilled workers in their vicinity. Not only can they tell them what they are, they can also provide information on who has worked on them as well as on the next work step. A radio frequency identification chip transmits the information
