The Spanish Association for Tracking and Tracing (SETRA)

Español English

The bar codes identification technology is more than 30 years old. Globally, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is considered as the alternative to bar codes. This technology is able to interact with other technologies in different fields, creating a wide variety of possibilities.

The interaction among the different technologies requires the establishment of nationwide working groups. This leads to the appearance of new industrial RFID forums. Despite of this, due to RFID’s multidisciplinary nature, Spanish institutions have many drawbacks when trying to introduce it in their facilities.

The Spanish Association for Tracking and Tracing (SETRA) has been created to face this situation. It is composed by many members throughout the whole country. Annually, SETRA organises a Scientific Workshop where researchers and experts from different areas of knowledge share their own experiences.
