The BMBF-funded project SMARTPACK that is driven by an RFID-chip manufacturer (NXP), a manufacturer of packaging material (Alcan Packaging) and a machine manufacturer (ASEM - Mühlbauer) aims for the integration of RFID functionality already during packaging material manufacturing. To allow the mass-volume production as required for item...
