Includes the RFID microchip very small (size of few rice grains), contains the passport’s identification details, can be update Includes an antenna Reader: At the border control to which the tag return its signal Includes an antenna Software In the computer Database
How does it work? Data is stored within the RFID tag's microchip as an unique serial number ( Electronic Product Code ). The RFID tag is stored in the cover page of the passport the microchip discharges it’s EPC number to the tag’s antenna.
How does it work? In the moment when the passport goes close to a RFID reader (distance of 10 ft), The tag’s antenna transmits the code to the reader’s antenna. The reader’s antenna sends the code to the software The software converts the number into digital data The software sends the data to a secure world- wide database, and the person who looks at the database make sure that you are a traveler (and not a terrorist, etc.)
