    'Smart tags' are small devices containing a combination of memory, data processing and communications capabilities. They can communicate without physical contact with purpose-specific stations over a range from a few millimetres up to several metres. Their shapes and sizes are application specific, ranging from the size of a brick right down to a capsule of a few millimetres diameter. The author d... View full abstract»
