A museum at a Polish World War II-era explosives factory is testing a radio frequency identification solution to track its visitors' locations. The system also provides access control as the tourists explore its abandoned tunnels, production line and warehouses.
The Exploseum Military Technology Center consists of a cluster of seven buildings used for the DAG Fabrik Bromberg explosives factory built by Germany during World War II. The site was the source of explosives manufactured by the German military during the war, and was manned largely by Polish prisoners of war. The museum features one of the factory's two nitroglycerin production lines, says Kinga Długosz, the Exploseum Military Technology Center's finance and administration deputy director.Smart Technology Group, a Swiss and Polish technology firm, to develop a solution combining ultrahigh-frequency (UHF) and high-frequency (HF) RFID technology to control access and monitor visitors as they move around the premises.
Exploseum is far from a typical museum, says Karolina Kozłowska, Smart Technology Group's president. Tourists could become lost in the large area, she explains, or suffer a medical emergency and be unable to request assistance.
