Internet of Things

AIM’s Internet of Things (IoT) industry group provides a forum for members to understand and help shape the rapidly changing landscape of the interconnected world of products, services, and, information. The group enables participants to lay the foundation for a smarter, more efficient world using automatic identification & data capture solutions. It is comprised of AIM member companies with an interest in influencing the direction and definition of the Internet of Things, especially as it relates to barcode, RFID and other AIDC technologies.

RAIN, the newest addition to AIM, was founded in early 2014 to promote global awareness, education and initiatives designed to accelerate UHF RFID. As an industry alliance (much like the Bluetooth SIG or Wi-Fi Alliance), RAIN members and their UHF RFID expertise lend strength to AIM’s commitment to AIDC innovation and technology. Through both prominent leadership and substantial growth of membership in RFID companies worldwide, RAIN is uniquely positioned to deliver initiatives that accelerate growth and adoption in business and consumer applications worldwide to improve business opportunities and, ultimately, peoples’ lives.

Founded in 2004, the REG is the AIM industry group responsible for addressing the standards and issues associated with radio frequency identification (RFID). The REG is currently comprised of over 40 organizations from the U.S., Europe, and Asia. The REG has authored five ISO Technical Reports (on Security, Recycling, ISO/IEC 18000-6C Labeling, installation of ISO/IEC 18000-6C reading systems and ISO/IEC TR24729-4-Tag Security). It has also submitted The RFID Emblem (ISO/IEC 29160) as an ISO standard to assist in consumer notification of RFID and to assist in operational use of the technology.
