The paper presents the application of RFID identification in the field of fast moving consumer goods (FMCG). The concept of a distributed system including household appliances, local embedded controllers and mobile platforms for product identification is presented, and RFID data processing is discussed. An important element of the solution is the use of cloud solutions, such as a central database, middleware connecting household appliances with other system modules and cloud services. The prototype of this solution has been developed using RFID read/write devices and the popular Raspberry Pi platform as a communication module for a home fridge with Microsoft Azure cloud services.
