The Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is among the most attractive topics of research in the industrial as well as academic field. Besides several applications several applications the cost efficient and reliable design of RFID systems is one of the co-existent and ubiquitous problems. The different components of RFID systems have been described in this article. The objective of this review paper is to focus on a simplified overview of involving basic concepts and applications of RFID sensor technology with a perspective to identify the crucial challenges involved in RFID systems. A brief exordium to the fundamentals of RFID System, the underlying technologies, followed by the comparison with barcode systems and applications of RFID systems will be useful for novices as a starting point towards developing applications based on RFID.
