Dr Dave Hunter of Engineering Technology in the College of Business and Technology at Western Illinois University used Michael and Michael's (2009) reference book titled: "Innovative Automatic Identification and Location-Based Services: from bar codes to chip implants" in Fall 2009 as the main textbook for MET487. The course on auto-ID included different methods of identifying objects automatically and the transmission of that data throughout a facility. Topics included: bar coding, magnetic stripe, radio frequency, data communications, EDI, and systems integration. The subject outline provided additional topics including bar code symbologies, smart cards, biometrics, geographic location systems, wearable computing, the socio-ethical implications of auto-ID, and a final lecture on "Uberveillance."
