Abstract

A novel lock (seal), combined Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) techniques with a smart mechanism, has been developed to improve the anti-thief ability of the traditional mechanical lock (seal) and RFID-based one that we developed in previous work. The reliability validation tests present that RFID locks past all required test conditions including mechanical and environmental tests to demonstrate that RFID is suitable for the defined conditions in use. Furthermore, a thermal cycling test was performed to evaluate the Lifetimes of RFID-based locks. Norris-Landzberg accelerated life model is applied. The results show that the mean life of RFID locks is longer than the required 5 years, and there are 24 RFID locks to fail among 5 years when employing 1 million of them in the market.
