Short Description: -
Long Description: 

The ALOHA protocol is used to read information from RFID transponders. The reading device requests that all transponders in its range respond after a random time. If this results in collisions, the process is repeated until the information from all transponders has been read. The ALOHA protocol makes it possible to read off a lot of RFID labels reliably within a small space.
