Utilization of Radio Frequency for Asset Identification

      Described is a hardware implementation whereby radio frequency
(RF) technology is used for fixed point asset identification
purposes.

      In prior art, STD products have been used for fixed point asset
identification purposes, such as railroads requiring trackside
identification of equipment.  Typically, the asset identification
equipment must operate in a temperature environment of from -40ºC to
+75ºC.

      The concept described herein proposes utilizing an STD rack,
processor, etc., but with an RF reader mounted in the trackside
enclosure.  The environmental requirements would then be met without
the need for special air conditioning.
