This report was prepared by RTI International for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under Contract No. 68-D-02-069 as a deliverable under a work assignment to prepare issue papers examining the use of (1) sensors and (2) radio frequency ID (RFID) technology. This report identifies devices using these types of technologies and offers a preliminary assessment of the utility of these devices and their needs for development for future uses in the National Children's Study in four primary areas: measurement and analysis of health/medical characteristics; measurement and analysis of exposure; collection of questionnaire data; and networking of these devices. These technological areas were identified during the Workshop on Innovative Technologies for Remote Data Collection of Data for the National Children's Study in May 2003 as the most promising in terms of utility in support of the data collection efforts of the National Children's Study.
