Big brother or the mark of the beast? [Nov. 12th, 2004|08:59 pm]
VERICHIP! RFID

By Becky Blanton - Sierra Times.com
If homeland security’s extreme precautions against terrorists haven’t gotten under your skin, look again. That’s just what they’re about to do — with VeriChips. A VeriChip is a rice-sized radio frequency identification microchip designed for tracking everything from products to people.
The company who created the chip — Applied Digital Solutions (ADS) — has announced that organizations in Brazil and Mexico have begun implanting the chips in children. And, the Department of Defense announced Oct. 23 that the government will begin using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) devices throughout the military and the U.S. for product inventory beginning in 2005. U.S. companies such as Wal-Mart also expect to be using RFID tags in 2005.

Depending on the public’s response, some American’s can expect to find VeriChips being offered in the U.S. as part of a child-identification program very soon. DoD claims RFID technology greatly improves the management of inventory by providing hands-off processing for everything from ordnance to office supplies.

The RFID tags will be applied to everything in the military except sand, gravel, liquids and similar items. Dod expects the system to not only speed up the inventory process, but make it more accurate and less susceptible to human error. Soldiers won’t be chipped — yet. At least not in the United States. However, the VeriChip is now being used to track people outside the United States.

ADS has a program called VeriKid.

Under the program children are implanted with a VeriChip — an RFID device, using a large needle which injects the device under the skin. The chip gives off a 125-kilohertz radio frequency signal which is transmitted to a nearby scanner or hand held wand. Scanners read the transmitted ID number and use it to identify the child through a database.

When a “chipped” child is abducted or missing, authorities place scanners in areas where the child might turn up — such as shopping malls, bus stations, airports and other areas. If the child goes by the scanner, the chip triggers the scanner and alerts authorities to the location.

Both Brazil and Mexico have implemented the program for “security purposes” and to track abducted and missing children. Mexico's National Foundation of Investigations of Robbed and Missing Children estimates that 133,000 children in Mexico have been kidnapped over the past five years.

According to VeriChip, Mexico launched their VeriKid program earlier this month to protect children from abduction. The company claims the chip will alert whether the child is unconscious, asleep, silenced or even dead.

Brazil has ordered 10 wall-mounted VeriGuard scanning devices to be used as part of their security system which will be launched in Brazil in mid-November.

That program, VeriChip claims, will be the first in which implantable chips will be used as part of a building access security system for adults.

VeriChip claims their original purpose for the program was medically focused — not for security. The company wanted to be able to identify people with specific medical needs, even if they were brought into a hospital unconscious. But VeriChip claims the chip goes far beyond medical uses the company claims.

Parolees could be chipped to make sure they do not break parole. Sex offenders could be tracked even if they did not register with the city as required by law.

It sounds good to some, but opponents to the chips claim that while the RFID’s provide some measure of security, they do so at the severe expense of personal privacy.

The chip can be linked to any kind of information — including financial, medical, criminal history or past convictions, drug use etc. and those with scanners or access to scanners would have access to that information as well.

Law enforcement wouldn’t even have to stop a person on the street to question them. A patrol car mounted scanner could relay the person’s criminal history faster than a cop could type in a license plate number. If that becomes the case, then the scanners might start popping up anywhere – highway overpasses, libraries, schools, or stores.

Those with access to the central database would be able to follow chipped people wherever they went. The chip would easily become an embedded leash and the refrain, “Home of the free,” would take on an entirely different meaning.

The solutions that combine the VeriChip device with Windows-based applications deliver the following:

Controlling access to Intellectual Property

Managing and tracking physical and intellectual assets

Providing physical access control solutions

Enabling innovative time and attendance systems

Providing automated data collection and monitoring platforms


VeriChip provides an accurate, real-time and dynamic means to detect, track, control and monitor a variety of items. This technology is applied to operations and processes in all types of industries. The following summary briefly describes how VeriChip applications can be deployed in some industries to improve efficiency:



Strict government legislation demands accurate audit-trails of drugs from the point of origin to final destination. Pharmaceutical companies are held accountable and using RFID technology, they are able to track and monitor the movement of batches and containers of medications through the entire supply chain to ensure safety, correct labeling and accurate distribution. Not only does this ensure an effective flow of processes with paperless audit-trails, but the data can also be used as an accurate source of vital statistical information for the medical fraternity; i.e. trends, brand popularity, increased or decreased demand of certain drugs or drug categories, and so forth.



Wrist-tags provide a means to accurately identify patients and can be used to facilitate security and access control to restricted areas. With RFID readers installed in theatres, it is possible to monitor and record the time a patient spends in an operating theatre. This makes for more accurate billing and resolves disputes between surgeons/hospitals and medical aid insurance companies.

Another application, which aids hospital staff in their efficiency, especially when confronted with emergency situations, is the tracking of medical equipment. Hospitals are somewhat limited in the numbers of expensive equipment they keep. This equipment is moved around between wards, theatres and different floor-levels, and the case of life-threatening emergency, it is vital that the location of the RIGHT equipment can quickly be pinpointed.



In high-value process manufacturing, RFID tags are used to enable work-in-progress tracking. This eliminates the need for manual keying in of information to update the status of any one sub-assembly within the process.

Where manufacturers make use of J.I.T. delivery of raw materials with a minimum safety stock level, RFID tags can be used to signal the usage of material for automatic updating of raw material inventory levels, which in turn enables the inventory management system to automatically generate replenishment orders as and when required. This ensures accuracy and minimum lost production time resulting from under-stocked situations. Operational efficiency is gained and this ultimately leads to increased productivity and a high level of customer-satisfaction.

By encoding product serial numbers and lot identification data into the read-only RFID memory, the manufacturer is able to provide lifetime tracking and product authentication. This is a useful feature for warranty claims and verification of ‘original’ products and/or parts.



Effective warehouse management relies on the ability of management to accurately manage and control the quantity, location, allocation replenishment and movement of inventory within and between multiple warehouses. All decisions made relating to these activities are based on availability and accuracy of information and it is therefore critical that the data is derived from a reliable source. The ability of management to respond pro-actively and quickly to any given situation determines the level of operational efficiency and effectiveness.

VeriChip technology enables REAL-TIME, accurate and dynamically updated data. By tagging inventory items or containers, information about location, quantity and movement of those items is available at all times. RFID tagging also eliminates the possibility of human error – no more incorrect keying in of information or neglecting to account for inventory received or dispatched.

Inventory replenishment becomes more effective due to the fact that replenishment decisions are based on accurate information. Order-fulfillment is improved by knowing exactly what is available-to-promise. The process of picking and packing is greatly improved through knowing the exact location of inventory items within the warehouse, even when misplaced. Thus delivery lead-times are reduced and a high level of customer-satisfaction is maintained. It is easy to see how ULR RFID can be used to achieve the highest level of productivity and a smooth flow of processes in every operation of warehouse management.



Every responsible company should have an occupational safety policy either dictated by internal policy or in-line with mandatory government legislation such as the King Report (II). VeriChip holds an important place in enforcing such policy by providing an automated platform for dynamic monitoring of personnel and assets.

For example, monitoring the usage of machinery which can only be operated by trained personnel, or assessing an increasing risk within hazardous areas depending upon the number of people present. Only RFID technology can turn these requirements in to real solutions. Legislation will eventually enforce stricter demands on companies to ensure the right people only operate or interact within their skills scope. VeriChip can help solve these problems by providing real time management data that can be acted upon immediately.



VeriChip technology can be deployed to provide a complete ‘smart’ building management system for the corporate environment. By enabling the tracking, monitoring and protection of all assets, including people, a more controlled and productive environment is created in which day to day business activities are handled more effectively and efficiently.

Knowing where your company’s assets are at all times and limiting the removal of such assets to pre-authorized personnel only, reduces incidents of theft and loss. Pre-authorization is automated by linking particular assets to personnel tags and creating an electronic relationship between the two tags.

Knowing exactly where all employees are within the building helps to improve customer service, employee safety and productivity.

By linking the activation or de-activation of facilities like projectors, air-conditioners, lights, automatic doors and so forth to employee tags in the presence or absence of such tags, companies have better control the the costs utilizing such facilities as well as the security of their employees by only allowing authorized access to specific zones within the building.

Security is further enhanced by the information that is recorded in the system. Each and every event, i.e. the movement of an asset or the entering and exiting of an employee, carries data relating to the date, time and zone of the event.

Mexico's newest border czar wants to begin building additional travel lanes at ports of entry along the U.S.-Mexico border and to increase the number of border crossings into the United States — the first steps, he hopes, toward an open border with no checkpoints.
Arturo Gonzalez Cruz, a Tijuana businessman named in April by President Vicente Fox as the Mexican Foreign Ministry's institutional liaison for northern border affairs, said access changes along the 1,940-mile U.S.-Mexico border were "necessary" to facilitate increased travel and trade between his country and the United States.
"I would like to see a border similar to the one that Europe has right now ... where they have common, very common objectives," he recently told reporters in Tijuana. "They have a common economy. They have policies that transcend their borders where they work with them to get it."

Travel across national borders in the European Union is unregulated, and citizens of EU member nations traverse borders as freely and easily as Americans cross state lines.

Skin ID Badge Wins Medical Approval [Nov. 12th, 2004|03:55 pm]
VERICHIP! RFID

Skin ID Badge Wins Medical Approval

October 15, 2004 (Fisher Center for Alzheimer's Research Foundation) -- A small computer chip that can be implanted under the skin to give physicians instant access to a person's identity and medical records has now been approved by the government for use in medical care. Some believe the chip may be useful as a way to avoid medical errors in surgical wards and emergency rooms and to identify lost patients, including those with Alzheimer's disease.

The device, called a VeriChip and made by Applied Digital Solutions Inc. of Delray Beach, Florida, is read by a scanner and linked to a computer database to provide detailed medical information. Doctors or law enforcement personnel could scan patients and get a read out, not unlike the scans used in grocery stores. Similar devices have been used in Mexico and other countries and have long been used to track lost house pets in the U.S.

The chips, about the size of a grain of rice, will cost about $200 each. They are implanted under the skin of the upper arm using a syringe, usually with little discomfort. They are expected to become more widely available in the coming months and years.

Privacy advocates have raised concerns that the chips may be used for surveillance and tracking purposes, although others counter that the devices may be particularly useful for those with Alzheimer's or similar medical conditions. The VeriChip that was recently approved does not send out radio waves and so cannot be used to track the movements of an individual. Rather, if a lost person is found and cannot speak, the chip is scanned. It gives off an identification number that can be used to retrieve information about the individual from a database of subscribers. Identity and other vital information is retrieved from the computer database over the internet. More advanced chips that do track people are currently under development.
