Developed by DataDot Technology (www.datadotdna.com), DataDots are the size of sand grains, and can contain identification numbers that can be linked to product serial numbers and relevant owner information, such as company name, business registration, or Social Security numbers.
Other technologies include marking systems that affix a nearly invisible but unique identification code to the machine (such as micro-dots from DataDot and radio-frequency identification [RFID] micro-chips) and "smart" keys utilizing individual operator passcodes to ensure that only authorized operators can start the equipment.
