Along with GS1, companies such as Microsoft and Texas Instruments would be part of the studythat would be done in the next 3-4 months, Mr Ravi Mathur, Chief Executive Officer of GS1, told Business Line.

The study will assess RFID's potential for various applications, he said on the sidelines of a seminar on `Leveraging peripheral technology to improve competitiveness in manufacturing and logistics'. The seminar was organised by the CII Institute of Logistics.
