U.K. Startup Company Launches "Wide-Area" EPC RFID Prototype System

PervasID claims its technology can cover up to a 400-square-meter area, providing near 100 percent read rate, by means of a single EPC Gen 2 UHF reader.

Since April 2012, Civica UK has been tracking the files as they are moved around the office, using software that PervasID developed to collect RFID read data. The software captures tag data from the interrogator, and then displays it in a variety of formats. What's more, the software could provide customized alerts in response to specific events, such as a file's removal. In short, Sabesan reports, the solution provides real-time information regarding files, triggering alerts if particular events are detected. The pilot he says, proved that the tagged files in the room could be read within a space of 8 meters by 17 meters, an area limited by the room size.

Ian Keers, managing director of Civica's Records Management division, comments: "Civica is now actively discussing the technology with potential clients for an installation or pilot of the DAS RFID system hardware and software."

In addition, PervasID is working to offer a version of its system with location functionality, so that PervasID technology could then allow users to learn not only in which room a tagged file was located, but also approximately where within that space.
