3D Tag by IIT Kanpur, First of its kind

3D Tag by IIT Kanpur, First of its kind. National Centre for Flexible Electronics of Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur has developed world’s first of its kind ‘3-D SECURE TAG’.It will also work when a user is offline. This tag will provide you all necessary information of product by scanning it through a mobile app. A patent has been applied for the technology and the tag will cost less than Rs 5.
It is special with its rate itself. The process of the app began in 2012-13 when Professor Deepak of Material Science and Engineering was working on an electronic chip. Deepak realized that an electronic reader was necessary to read the information stored in chip. He stuck with the idea of using it with an Android phone so that people could use it to check genuine and fake products. He started to develop it by 2014 with his Anti-Counterfeiting team (ACT).
“Hard work of more than two and half years became successful when world’s first offline 3-D secure tag got ready for public use. One simply needs to download an app of less than 10 MB of storage space from Google Play store. Tag will be affixed on product. It needs to be scanned through app and information like date of manufacturing, expiry, batch number and MRP will be available on screen. The tag will cost less than five rupees” said Pranav Asthana, one of the members of core team of Prof Deepak and Prof Monika Katiyar. Other members are Satish Chandra, Utkarsha and Priyanka.
