Kamisha Harris, an information systems graduate student at Strayer University was not interested in accounting until she was interested in the navigation of money transfers among banks. The Federal Reserve Banks hire security teams to transfer money from one location to the next. Although private sector banks are licensed to print their own money with serial to track their money. Among investigating the procedures of the security teams to secure money; there are still gaps open for robbery during these transfers. Convinced there was a better way to secure money that is being transported, Harris began designing a mini GPS/GIS micro-chip tags that are inserted in the seam of money bags and suitcases to track the direction of movement and map the location in which the money is moving. This chip will eliminate or track missing currency due to robbery.
The implementation of this GPS/GIS Radio frequency identification can help meet challenges by providing accurate, real world, real time,on the bags as they move different transports. These tags include an active and passive Radio Frequency Identification, or RFID which is technologies that use radio frequent waves to automatically identify people or objects. There are several method of identification, but the most common is to store a serial number that identifies a person or object and perhaps other information, on a microchip that is attached to an antenna. The antenna enables the chip to transmit the identification information to a reader.
From a transmission perspective there are two types of RFID tags:
An active tag for example a vehicle traffic management system for automated payment on tollways- uses its own paper source to contact reader. That power enables transmission of a signal over greater distance...
