RFID Bleg + Summer Opportunity if you know how to do this stuff

This page in:

I am in the early stages of exploring how to use RFID tags to improve measurement of turnover in small businesses. Does anyone know of cases where RFID tags have been used to track aid flows, or in development projects to track mass quantities of goods? I know technology is rapidly evolving and price dropping here, but would be good to know of recent experiences on this. Both technology that seems to work well, as well as any logistical issues that come up that we should watch out for would be most welcome. Happy for you to email me if you don’t want to share the experience in public.

In addition, if you are a smart undergraduate or graduate student who knows a bit about this technology already and is interested in working for me this summer on trying to implement this in some small businesses, email me a cover letter explaining your knowledge/experience in using RFID, as well as your CV.
