Auburn University will soon be home to one of the world’s leading research centers in the area of radio frequency identification, or RFID, technology.

In June, the RFID Research Center will move from the University of Arkansas to Auburn University, opening the door for research collaborations initially involving the Raymond J. Harbert College of Business, the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and the College of Human Sciences.

Since its founding at the University of Arkansas in 2005, the RFID Research Center has been at the epicenter of research in RFID, earning national and international recognition for its work. When it opens in June as the RFID Lab at Auburn University, it will be reunited with its founder and former director, Harbert College of Business Dean and Wells Fargo Professor Bill Hardgrave.

Governor Bentley tours tornado damage in Limestone County

Taking in the destruction of a mobile home park in Coxey this morning was almost an emotional experience for Gov. Robert Bentley, who stopped in Limestone County with his wife, Dianne, to survey the recent storm damage.

Bentley, who held a news conference near a community safe room that sheltered 200 residents behind the Clements Volunteer Fire Department, said he has seen close to 90 tornadoes in Alabama since he was elected in 2010.
