Fosstrak - RFID Software Platform

A Research Project in Cooperation with the Distributed Systems Group

Fosstrak (formerly Accada) is an open-source RFID software platform that implements the EPC Network specifications. It is intended to foster the rapid prototyping of RFID applications and to accelerate the development of an Internet of Things.

The Fosstrak project was initiated by the Distributed Systems Group and is today the most comprehensive open-source RFID software platform that is compliant with the EPC Network.

Information about the mission, background, and current status is available on the Fosstrak website.
