He presented the concept of Electro-magnetic waves, its spectrum, frequency range and application. The use of microwaves in mobile phones near also discussed. The enormous number of applications of RFID was then explained. Small RFID chips are in corporate in consumer products, and implanted in pets for identification purposes.RFID can be used for the purpose of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. The tags (RFID Tags) contain electronically stored information. Unlike a barcode, the tag does not necessarily need to be within the line of sight of reader and may be embedded in the tracked object. Back scatter modulation near then dealt with RFID will not work in liquids and metals. That was pointed out to be one of the main demerits of RFID.After this valuable session, he also found time to interact with the students. The vote of thanks was delivered by Prof. Jasmine Basheer, coordinator of ETA.After the meeting elocution completion and electro-memory were organized and conducted by the students of  ECE. The result of the competition was announced soon and the prizes were distributed. The programme was concluded with the National Anthem.
