Automatic data capture
 Automatic Data Capture (ADC) - Glossary of Terms (Intermec)
 Automatic Data Capture (ADC) technologies (AutoID News)
  Here, you can get the basics to give you a working knowledge of Automatic Data Capture, including bar code and radio frequency identification
 RFID, Radio Frequency Identification
  Radio frequency identification (RFID) is a relatively new AIDC technology, first appearing in tracking and access applications during the 1980s. These wireless AIDC systems allow for noncontact reading and consequently are effective in manufacturing and other hostile environments where barcode labels could not survive. RFID has established itself in a wide range of markets including livestock identification and automated vehicle identification (AVI) systems because of its ability to track moving objects. The technology has become a primary player in automated data collection, identification, and analysis systems worldwide.
Automatic identification
 AIM (Automatic Identification Manufacturers) Educational links

Data acquisition
 Introduction to Data Acquisition and Serial Communications (TAL Technologies)
  "All IBM PC and compatible computers are typically equipped with two serial ports and one parallel port. Although these two types of ports are used for communicating with external devices, they work in different ways. A parallel port sends and receives data eight bits at a time over 8 separate wires. This allows data to be transferred very quickly; however, the cable required is more bulky because of the number of individual wires it must contain. Parallel ports are typically used to connect a PC to a printer and are rarely used for much else. A serial port sends and receives data one bit at a time over one wire. While it takes eight times as long to transfer each byte of data this way, only a few wires are required. In fact, two-way (full duplex) communications is possible with only three separate wires - one to send, one to receive, and a common signal ground wire."
 Terms and definitions - Ports and Interfaces (PC Webopedia)
  See this page for definition of these terms: ATA, AUX, Centronics interface, COM, Geoport, hot plugging, IDE interface, interface, parallel interface, parallel port, port, PS/2 port, RS-232C, RS-422 and RS-423, RS-485, serial port, ST-506 interface, Ultra ATA, ZV Port
