RFID, short for Radio Frequency ID, microchips are identity chips used in a range of applications from identity tagging library books to cars to pets and now more recently, people. In animals and people they are inserted under the skin. RFID chips usually contain two parts: an integrated circuit that stores information and a receiver-transmitter (also called a transponder) that senses when an appropriate scanning device is nearby and then transmits a radio frequency message to the device. The scanner picks up the radio signal and reads the information on the chip.
RFID chips are used in many industry, these chips where first used in bar codes to recognize merchandise and products. The manufacturings of vehicles were implanted with RFID chips for tracking of the status and security purposes. RFID chips are well known to be in livestock and pets. The purpose of putting these chips into pets and livestock is that fact that you will be able to track their location when they get lost. For example, if your cattle were to ever run away from home and you was unable to find them, with a RFID chip implanted into them, you can easily get a RFID scanner to search for the missing cattle.
