Researchers in Canada are using RFID technology to track contact with horses to prevent the spread of equine and human disease.



Horses and staff members have each been outfitted with an RFID tags that collect data as they make contact with other tags. The risk for infection is then evaluated based on confined areas, interaction order, and length of contact.


If this model proves successful, the intent is to migrate the solution to hospitals and medical facilities, where health care professionals can track potentially contagious patients to better understand the transmission of illness.
