The paper will show new ideas of RFID and real time location systems (RTLS) for production scenarios, e.g. aviation industry and automotive industry. To evaluate different systems of tracking, tracing and identification, it is necessary to design new comparable test approaches. While radio frequency based identification has gained wide acceptance in the market the use of RF-technologies for real-time location is still limited to certain branchspecific approaches, such as in hospitals, car yards or container terminals. One reason for this missing dissemination may be seen in the high costs for the infrastructure since traditionally active transponders or ultra-sound systems are used for real-time location, requiring expensive asset tags and an extensive network of base-stations.
