Keynote Speakers

Nicolas Aubourg, Head of Performance, FIA will discuss how RFID in Tires Aligns with FIA Strategy FIA has implemented RFID in tires for several applications such as the World Endurance and the World Rally Championships. This presentation will show what is the role of FIA and racing into a world demanding more sustainable solutions and how tire traceability requirements and more specifically RFID applications are delivering for that purpose.

Thomas Burke, Senior Analyst FSQA Traceability, Chipotle Mexican Grill will explore how the food industry utilizes and benefits from AIDC standards, especially to accomplish current and future food safety use cases. He will also show how the future of contextualized identity of food and microbiological attributes will continue to drive interdisciplinary methods of preventative food safety action, where AIDC serves as the physical-digital infrastructure.

Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor, RFID Journal will discuss how the global pandemic has disrupted supply chains, and changed consumer shopping habits, perhaps permanently. He will explore the role of AIDC, RFID and IoT technologies in the wake of COVID-19 and share which technologies companies are embracing to improve visibility and improve omni-channel execution.
