Tracking of persons and animals


In addition to goods persons and livestock can be tracked. For this purpose typically passive RFID tags are used. They can be attached to persons (for example new born babies in the hospital to endure that they stay matched to their mothers) or implanted into persons and animals (for example the VeriChip).

In the context of persons the VeriChip also can be used additional purposes such as authentication, for example access control or payment.

In the context of animals additional purposes are control / management e.g. of the feeding, or tracking of the movement of animals (Garfinkel, Rosenberg 2006: 245).
