are the E-tags on Sydney and Melbourne motorways in fact RFID tags?
if so, does this mean we'll be able to stick a credit card on the
dashboard when driving on those motorways, or use drivethrough
shopping pickup and pay with the eway toll tag?
Maybe these are silly examples, but I am wondering how far it might go......
Hey! those RFID tags in the animation look just like the ones I've
recently peeled from the back of DVDs at a large retail outlet - are
those tage just security tags or is RFID technology already here and
used on a widespread basis?
