The Auto-ID Center (headquarters: MIT) is an organization conducting joint research on an international scale to resolve issues arising from the application of ID to issues in distribution and in everyday life. The goal is the realization of a system where all kinds of products are handled by following the flow of distribution, from production to disposal, in both real-space and informational space, by allocating ID to various products and marking with technologies like XML.
The Auto-ID Center is a Japan-based affiliate of the Auto-ID Center at MIT, and will conduct research jointly with MIT. Our center will focus on the development of the network aspects of the project, which has always been a part of our research. Ultimately, our center aims to evolve an international standard for Auto-ID technology through research, experiment, and application development focusing on networking issues Additionally, we will research, develop and make recommendations for related field of real-space networking technology, which is a platform handles people and things as they exist in and move through real-space. The goal is to apply this technology to an even wider range of fields.
