RFID(Radio Frequency Identification) is used to describe a system that transmits the identity of an object or person wirelessly using radio waves. RFID is recognized as a key technology of USN(Ubiquitous Sensor Network). ISO/IEC JTC1 and EPCglobal are developing RFID related standards for global supply chain management. RFID is an important solution not only for the supply chain management, but also for USN and future services. Recently, mobile RFID which provide various services using RFID reader in mobile phone, is being standardized in Korea. In this paper, we analyze trends of RFID standardization activities in ISO/IEC JTC1 and EPCglobal and mobile RFID, and propose an convergence scenario of IPv6 and RFID.
