UHF RFID with Drones

What is UHF RFID? 

The Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) range, which spans 840 MHz to 960 MHz, is used by UHF RFID readers. One reader can interact with numerous tags simultaneously, at a very high pace, and over distances of tens of meters, thanks to its expanded read range compared to other readers.

UHF RFID tags have a far wider scan range than LF and HF tags. UHF RFID tags are perfect for applications requiring scanning several items simultaneously due to their rapid data transfer rates, such as reading runners as they cross the finish line or boxes of products entering a warehouse.

How UHF RFID is used with Drones?

RFID drone needs to fly a few meters away from an RFID-tagged item to recognize it, acquire its personal information, and obtain a GPS estimate of its precise location.

Drones are being used by more and more businesses, particularly to deliver cutting-edge data produced via aerial data processing. Drones are being used in a variety of industries, including transportation, security, and the environment. RFID-enabled drones can help you operate your business more effectively. 

Drone-based UHF-RFID Inventory System in India:

As in other industries, taking an inventory of chemical components requires a lot of work and data collection. Additionally, it is a resource-intensive activity that carries some danger for the operators. Seals can now be created using passive RFID tags. They are destroyed whenever a container is broken, serving as a tool to gather data on quantity and safety. The RFID drone offers a substitute for both manual inventory and other associated dangers.

How Drone-based UHF-RFID Works?

A warehouse drone can work in two ways. Utilizing a remote control is the first and most popular method. The second method involves automatically setting the flight route (only for models with GPS integration). In this way, the drone moves inside the building by a predetermined flight plan and path. Once in flight, the drone cameras record the data from each unit load's tag to keep track of the stock.

Warehouse drones can identify products from both sides of an aisle, over 25 feet distant, and with channels that are up to seven pallets deep using the RFID system's more advanced features, which eliminate the need for physical contact with the tag.

Applications of UHF RFID with Drones:


Drone use in the agricultural sector is rapidly expanding. The RFID drone enables farmers to keep an eye on their crops as they expand so that any problems may be fixed immediately to maximize plant health and minimize artificial inputs. Managing climate threats, crop protection products, inputs, and regulations are farmers' top worries.


A solar panel inspection and maintenance do take a lot of time. Drones for visual monitoring are already in use and being developed, but there are now new applications for assessing the state of the solar power plant. Due to the RFID tags that may be included on solar panels, the RFID drone shows to be a very effective tool that enables productivity gains, risk reduction, and most importantly, foreseeing technical issues before they arise. It would enable the gathering of structure and state information as well as the planning of maintenance tasks while preserving high energy production.

Benefits of UHF RFID with Drones:

RFID itself serve various benefits to the individual. It reduces the labor cost, and increases productivity and work accurately. Using a UHF RFID drone helps the user in long run. It reduces the time you spend on low-value tasks that demotivate teams. You can use the time you have free up for high-value activities. It also boosts the efficiency and administration of its storage facilities. You can simultaneously take up other tasks.
